Spring Ponderings & Postcards from London

Spring days fill with reminders anew each day.

KG00There are a lot of new beginnings happening in nature.

KGooAll the newness of budding trees, the gentle sound of buzzing bees . . .

KF@flowers sprouting everywhere . . . . .

KG15and some people running in the park is God’s way of telling us that all His creation is astonishing. The Bible says, “For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse . . .” (Romans 1:20)

KGDaffodilsThe buds are already visible as flecks on the trees.

KG14The daffodils, crocuses and forsythias are already out in full bloom.

KGcrocusesEven the bluebells are radiant and glowing.

KG18Man knows quite well, deep in his very being, that he could never create life . . . . .

KG000. . . something as sunlight or soil, or make a plant grow or make a flower bloom, much less breathe life into a newborn baby.

KGooo.jpgWhen I venture out into God’s creation, I see the incredible artistry He created powerfully bursting into vibrant colours, fragile fragrance, and sounds lacking syllables.

KGRD.jpgIt makes me think, if nature can do that, glorify God without doing anything but being, how can I, a creature made in His image, glorify Him?

The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handiwork. Day unto day uttereth speech, and night not night sheweth knowledge. (Psalm 19:1-2)
