In the Beginning

Looked out at my backyard this morning and saw a rabbit, four or five crows and about the same number of squirrels. Butterflies and bees were swarming my golden yellow Esperanza. What I couldn’t see were the many other life forms living out there. Our earth teems with life. We have a life-giving, life-sustaining God who delights in his creation. I know he does because his pleasure shines through what he has made, inspiring us to glorify him every day. When I read John 1 and imagine how it might have been in the beginning when Jesus created everything from nothing, my mind reels! All the light and color blazing into the stark blackness must have been incredibly beautiful!

One thought on “In the Beginning

  1. How wonderful it must have been and to think the earth was only one moment of his creation. Thanks Sheila!
