The Beauty of God's Creation

There was something so perfect as we walked into church this morning. After six plus inches of snow the budding trees where blanketed with beautiful white tufts of cotton. The sun made each facet of God's intricate work glisten as if on display. There wasn't a breath of wind and the temperature was on the rise. It was simply gorgeous and I was blessed before I entered God's house.

After church the dogs were chomping at the bit to play. The ground is absolutely saturated and I knew they'd get muddier than all get out...but...if I ran them while there was still a thick pad of snow, the snow would serve to keep them cleaner. Certainly cleaner than once the snow melts.

So out we went and wouldn't you know God wasn't done blessing me yet! As I threw the frisbee for Ecclesiastes, something caught my attention. It was the most peaceful sound I'd heard in a long long time. I turned around to see the creek behind our home had become a beautiful bubbling brook thanks to the fast-melting snow. I had half a mind to grab a chair and sit by this majestic site for the rest of the afternoon. Instead, I threw the frisbee long enough to burn Ecclesi's energy, grabbed the camera, take these pics, and come in to blog. I plan to head back and absorb more of God's beauty as soon as I press publish!

"For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities — his eternal power and divine nature — have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse." Romans 1:20

So glad you got to enjoy that bubbling brook. We got snow down our way, too -- reports of anywhere between 6 and 8 inchs (we're on the KS/OK border). You'll have to pop over and check out the picture I posted. Took it about 90 minutes into the storm. Crazy weather, huh? Like your March Madness title of your other post :)

I will begin to hope for snow in Nov. Almost everyone in southeast TX goes a little crazy for the snows we receive every few years.

Yay, it looks like you had a very blessed Sunday! It is warming up down here in TN. All that snow beside that creek looks like a painting or somethin':)

Indeed, God's stunning and invisible fingerprints are all around us. Better to pay attention now while we can. We are a people in desperate need of "seeing" Him in these days.

Happy Easter week~elaine
