O LORD, how manifold are Your works!
In wisdom You have made them all.
The earth is full of Your possessions --
This great and wide sea,
In which are innumerable teeming things,
Living things both small and great.
There the ships sail about;
There is that Leviathan
Which You have made to play there.
These all wait for You,
That You may give them their food in due season.
What You give them they gather in;
You open Your hand, they are filled with good.
You hide Your face, they are troubled;
You take away their breath, they die and return to their dust.
You send forth Your Spirit, they are created;
And You renew the face of the earth.
Greetings Bible Enthusiast!
Last issue we looked at what George Washington Carver had to say about nature and God: "I love to think of nature as an unlimited broadcasting system through which God speaks to us every hour, if we will only tune in." Let's tune into Him today, OKAY?
God Bless You!

Nature is too thin a screen; the glory of the omnipresent God bursts through everywhere.
-Ralph Waldo Emerson
A young couple had their first baby. When it was one year old, it hadn't said a word; one and a half years, still not a word. The parents took the baby to a pediatrician, who said, "Everything's perfectly normal. Just be patient."
And so it went until the child's 25th month. They were all having breakfast and the child turned to his mother and said, "This oatmeal is too lumpy!"
The parents were amazed, and asked, "Why haven't you talked before?"
The child replied, "Up till now, things have gone very well."
-Eric W. Johnson
