Earth Day is God's Day

So, it was Earth day the other day. Don't know if you knew that, or even really cared, but it was. If any of you know me at all, you know that I LOVE the earth. Outside. Nature. Animals. Plants. Rain. Clouds. All of it. I just breathe it in.

You know why I love it so much?

Because nature reminds me of God every time I see it.

It's one of the ways He loves me best.

Our God is one who prepares the rain for the earth, and He more than deserves our love and our willingness to live for Him.

We should therefore treat our earth as a gift from our Lovely Creator, one that is treasured and to be cherished so Earth Day is everyday.

"Sing out your thanks to the Lord;
    sing praises to our God with a harp.
He covers the heavens with clouds,
    provides rain for the earth,
    and makes the grass grow in mountain pastures.
He gives food to the wild animals
    and feeds the young ravens when they cry.
 He takes no pleasure in the strength of a horse
    or in human might.
 No, the Lord’s delight is in those who fear him,
    those who put their hope in his unfailing love."
Psalms 147:7-11
"Praise the Lord!
Praise the Lord from the heavens!
    Praise him from the skies!
 Praise him, all his angels!
    Praise him, all the armies of heaven!
 Praise him, sun and moon!
    Praise him, all you twinkling stars!
 Praise him, skies above!
    Praise him, vapors high above the clouds!
 Let every created thing give praise to the Lord,
    for he issued his command, and they came into being.
He set them in place forever and ever.
    His decree will never be revoked.
Praise the Lord from the earth,
    you creatures of the ocean depths,
 fire and hail, snow and clouds,
    wind and weather that obey him,
 mountains and all hills,
    fruit trees and all cedars,
 wild animals and all livestock,
    small scurrying animals and birds,
 kings of the earth and all people,
    rulers and judges of the earth,
 young men and young women,
    old men and children.
 Let them all praise the name of the Lord.
    For his name is very great;
    his glory towers over the earth and heaven!
 He has made his people strong,
    honoring his faithful ones—
    the people of Israel who are close to him."
Psalms 148
