a passion for God's creation
Week 49 of the Wednesday Lists
The first question we were asked last week at small group was to list the things of great beauty that point us to God. The more we talked, the more relaxed everyone grew. Smiles were larger, laughs were heartier, muscles relaxed; we all became happier. You know I wrote down everyone's words. Here they are, plus more of my own.
* water * Sloane * mountain views * the wind through the trees * dawning of spring * dogwoods * squirrels * daffodils * ocean * sunsets * bird song * butterflies * hills that are perfect for rolling down * little black lambs * running calves * donkeys * full moon nights * no moon nights * starry skies and time to sit and look * hummingbirds * symmetry of nature * food chains * bald eagles * the butterfly life cycle * the water cycle * the sound of the woods * lichen * moss * the rustle of leaves * the smell of a pine forest * bare trees in winter making lace against the sky * walking barefoot in sand * dancing in a soft summer rain with your children * turtles plopping into the water as your canoe approaches * every single flower that blooms * the taste of honeysuckle * the smell of a lilac bush in full bloom *
What else, friends? What parts of creation do you most love?
