"God saw all that he had made, and it was very good. And there was evening, and there was morning--the sixth day." ~ Genesis 1:31
One of the things that we as human beings forget is that all creation at one time was pronounced "good."
Although several millennium have passed and tides have washed over and over, there is still a sense of sacredness in all things. We must look through our spiritual selves to see the beauty.
As long as we only use creation, we cannot recognize its sacredness because we are approaching it as if we are its owners. But when we relate to all that surrounds us as created by the same God who created us and as the place where God appears to us and calls us to worship and adoration, then we are able to recognize the sacred quality of all God's handiwork.
Inviting us all to be reminded of just how wonderfully created all things are.
Stay in God's grip!

Dear God, help us to remember the good in which You created all things. Amen.
