nature - God's artistry

I absolutely love nature.  For as long as I can remember.  Flowers, creeks, and rainbows.  Trees, waterfalls, and stars.  Days, breezes, and rocks.  Sunsets, snow, and birds.  Mountains, rivers, and seashells.  Goldfish, gardens, and sunrises.  Clouds, streams, and forests.  Leaves, beaches, and nights. Butterflies, showers, and blooms.  Winter, Spring, Summer, and Fall.

It’s God's majestic handiwork, breathtaking beauty, magnificent creation... 

Nature testifies.  All of creation testifies.  Testifies that God is our Creator.  God spoke and creation became into existence.  The day and night, the sky and land, seed-bearing plants and trees, sun and moon and stars, fish and birds, animals small and large...

For ever since the world was created, people have seen the earth and sky. Through everything God made, they can clearly see his invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature. So they have no excuse for not knowing God.
Romans 1:20 NLT

The heavens proclaim the glory of God.  The skies display his craftsmanship.
Psalm 19:1 NLT

Because God created the Natural—invented it out of His love and artistry—it demands our reverence.
C. Lewis. God in the Dock
