He Is Seen In All Of Creation
Day 245 in my "Year In My Life Through Pictures" blog series
This morning started off a little on the rainy side. It actually continued through the day and now, at 10:45 PM it is still raining. It has not been a constant rain, but it has lasted throughout the day and is to continue through tomorrow morning.
You know what the weather reminds me of? Spring. Even though we are still a little shy of 3 weeks from the official beginning of spring. The signs of new growth are visible wherever you look. The grass in our yard that went dormant through the winter months is showing spots of green. The Easter lilies are poking heir stems through the ground and the rains are falling and bringing the all important water.
The seasons come and go and we adjust our lives accordingly. The days grow longer so we actually adjust our time keeping to keep more daylight hours even. Our choice of clothing will change. Our activities will change. We will begin to plant gardens, mow grass, play outside, go on vacations, have picnics and take walks through the park. Not that we couldn't do any of those things in the winter time, but we choose not to.
This time of year (but all year should be) is perfect for getting out and seeing the miracle of life that God has created for us. We can see life spring forth (no pun intended) from the seeming death of winter. We will see the colors of nature explode around us declaring the glory of our God. Everywhere you look will be shown God's creative powers. Look at a leaf and see how intricate it is, with its veins that supply the water throughout. Look at the vivid colors of the flowers, gaze at the oak tree spreading its canopy high into the air and be amazed at God's workmanship.
Romans 1:18-20 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, because what may be known of God is manifest in them, for God has shown it to them. For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse
