And It Was Very Good

Greetings and Holykisses,

So it's Earth Day.........
"In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. " Gen 1:1
The word tells us that for six days He created and when He finished He saw it was very good.

"Thank you Lord for creating such a beautiful world for us to live in and enjoy!
Thank you for light, water, and the air we breathe. Thank you for the beautiful sky, and the heavens filled with stars. Thank you for fresh air to breathe and rivers, and oceans and streams. Thank you for flowers, and food to eat; for trees, and people to love! Thankyou for sparrows and bunnies,... toads, donkeys and hippopotamuses. Thankyou for warm breezes, mountain tops, snowflakes and your glorious sunshine. I take all these things and so much more ... so for granted! This truly is a beautiful world... and I'm thankful!
This Earth day, I rejoice and give YOU praise."

Psalm 148

Praise the LORD.
Praise the LORD from the heavens,
praise him in the heights above.

Praise him, all his angels,
praise him, all his heavenly hosts.

Praise him, sun and moon,
praise him, all you shining stars.

Praise him, you highest heavens
and you waters above the skies.

Let them praise the name of the LORD,
for he commanded and they were created.

He set them in place for ever and ever;
he gave a decree that will never pass away.

Praise the LORD from the earth,
you great sea creatures and all ocean depths,

lightning and hail, snow and clouds,
stormy winds that do his bidding,

you mountains and all hills,
fruit trees and all cedars,

wild animals and all cattle,
small creatures and flying birds,

kings of the earth and all nations,
you princes and all rulers on earth,

young men and maidens,
old men and children.

Let them praise the name of the LORD,
for his name alone is exalted;
his splendor is above the earth and the heavens.

He has raised up for his people a horn,
the praise of all his saints,
of Israel, the people close to his heart.
Praise the LORD.

A beautiful tribut to our God who created the earth. People who celebrate Earth Day may not realize that they are actually celebrating God. Wow, an earth shattering statement for some people. Glad I know the Creator of all the Earth.
Blessings, AE

Luke 19:40
40"I tell you," he replied, "if they keep quiet, the stones will cry out."


Matthew 27:51-53
51 Then, behold, the veil of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom; and the earth quaked, and the rocks were split,

The earth is alive and it knows to whom praise is to be given... The earth quaked when HE died... violent and caused the veil to be ripped from top to bottom...

The earth is quaking again.....more and more as in labor to bring forth the new dispensation...... Oh how that thrills my spirit man.....

Good post girl !
