It’s Earth Day, and to celebrate when I went to start my post this morning I received this message
Error establishing a database connection
Yes, its Earth day, so my database server decided to save energy and not run! Its finally back up, and I am able to post away!
That’s one way to celebrate this sort of crazy holiday, a holiday I think we should all get behind, however, I may have a little different take then some people on how to approach it. No chaining my self to a tree, however, I do think we should consider the trees we have. For me this is a day to honor the Creator and to be in awe of the wonders he gave us to manage
26-28 God spoke: “Let us make human beings in our image, make them
reflecting our nature
So they can be responsible for the fish in the sea,
the birds in the air, the cattle,
And, yes, Earth itself,
and every animal that moves on the face of Earth.”
God created human beings;
he created them godlike,
Reflecting God’s nature.
He created them male and female.
God blessed them:
“Prosper! Reproduce! Fill Earth! Take charge!
Be responsible for fish in the sea and birds in the air,
for every living thing that moves on the face of Earth.”
29-30 Then God said, “I’ve given you
every sort of seed-bearing plant on Earth
And every kind of fruit-bearing tree,
given them to you for food.
To all animals and all birds,
everything that moves and breathes,
I give whatever grows out of the ground for food.”
And there it was.
31 God looked over everything he had made;
it was so good, so very good!
It was evening, it was morning—
Day Six. Gen 1:26-31 The Message (MSG)
What is so great is that today, like every day creation screams out praising to the creator. Last night, I was considering my finger nails, and what a marvelous thing they are. (No I did not get a manicure!) In the simplicity and in the grandeur, it all declares the glory of the Master.
1 The heavens declare the glory of God;
the skies proclaim the work of his hands.
2 Day after day they pour forth speech;
night after night they display knowledge.
3 There is no speech or language
where their voice is not heard.
4 Their voice goes out into all the earth,
their words to the ends of the world.
In the heavens he has pitched a tent for the sun, Psalm 19:1-4 New International Version (NIV)
So today, remember the Creator as you consider the trees, and the resources we have been pleased to have and to use. Go over to this site (http://www.crazylovebook.com/videos_awe.html) and check out this video from Francis Chan. I think that will give you an appreciation for the greatness of this creation we live in and the greatness of the Creator as well.
1 The earth is the LORD’s, and everything in it,
the world, and all who live in it; Psalm 24
Happy Earth Day, now go play in the yard!
