Today I want to look at another gift we have and often take for granted. The universe is an amazing and often unfathomable. We have yet to discover the ends of it, or even if there is an end…. imagine that for a minute. As if the immensity of the Universe isn’t enough to contemplate, we live on this planet called earth, the fact that it supports life is beyond coincidence, the fingerprint of our God is everywhere if we are willing to look.
Sometimes, when I sit in my car near a tree, I will begin to think of how incredible the tree is, it provides shade, oxygen, housing for various critters, erosion control, aesthetic pleasure, and if we decide to harvest the tree, there is a multitude of products and benefits we garner from its limbs. And if we choose to burn it as a fuel source we are warmed by it, can cook on the heat produced or use it’s energy in other ways. All of this from just one miniscule part of what the Lord has provided. Yes this place we call home is some incredible Gift!
