The Beauty of God’s Design

The way God created everything is perfect. If you just sit and ponder the scope of the world He made, the love He fashioned it with, the fingerprints He left behind in it, it just leaves me speechless. This is why I write. Words flow better onto paper than out of my mouth. But I love sitting out in His creation, feeling every bit a part of His masterpiece, and just ponder His perfection and glory. That is my favorite thing to do. While hiking or rowing a boat or sleeping in a tent or walking. And now that I am older, I also enjoy just sitting and looking at it. Just amazing!😄❤

The Laws of Nature

God created this world and everything in it using physical, biological, mathematical, etc. laws and lots and lots of love. And if you study His design long enough, you will be amazed by His skills and also ask why. Why go to all the trouble? Why is it all here? And the answer is as profound as the question, and I know it. Wanna hear it? God designed everything because 1. He wanted to and frankly, He can do whatever He wants to do and 2. His immense love compelled Him to. As soon as He thought of you, He loved you so much He just had to give you life. And here is why we say God is love. He cannot operate without it. Love is God’s DNA, if He has such a thing, or at least His M.O. (modus operendi). And if that does not well up your praise and worship of God, I cannot help you. 😄 ❤

Loving God is Natural

I don’t have to work hard to love God. It is natural.

I was designed to know and love God.

Yep, you were too. Hey, even the wounded person screaming that God doesn’t exist was made, designed lovingly to know and live His Creator. The proof is how angry they are, they are going against their makeup.

We were designed by God to know and love Him.

He loves us and built within us the wisdom to love Him back. We were designed to relate to Him. All our intricacies point to Him. All our gifts point to His love of us. All of our blessings remind us this has never changed.❤

Travelling the Memories of Places

Visualization comes easily for me. It is harder for some, I understand, but a good hearty freedom of imagination can help fill in what the memories of the eye cannot return to you. I have travelled extensively until about 13 years ago and since has just been vacations and a few family visits. But I can travel back in my mind to England, Poland, Russia, Canada, Hawaii and every other state in thr USA I have visited or lived and remember the particulars of the places, the people, the traditions and unique vocabulary and foods there. I can remember the hiking trails (something I have done wherever I have gone) on flatlands or mountains or waterfalls or beaches. I remember these places. And what I love to contemplate most about everywhere I have been is the quiet spots, the spots of beauty and nature. And I finally figured out why I am such a nature girl (other than being raised in the country on a farm). I can feel and see God most in these places. No matter where in the world, God shines brightest through what He made. Sometimes that is the people but always it is nature. And seeing Him closer always reminds me how close He is always, no matter where you are or what else is going on. And that, my friend, is beautiful.❤

Walking Home

This beautiful red shouldered hawk landed by us as we were walking home from the store. Such a beautiful bird. And while it was too far away for a great shot, this was descent and I marvel at the great detail God put into such a bird. All of them, really. All of us too, really. Such masterpieces! Praise God!❤

A Tale of Fishing 

Today, I took my kids fishing. In coats, all bundled up. We caught nothing. We used a lot of time. We were chilly. All worth it. You cannot bond properly with your children without spending tech-free time with them, where God’s nature is the only distraction and it is a calming, welcome one. It enriches their lives and gives them an option to other unhealthy habits they may come across. ❤
