We have a Big God

As I look outside my window this morning, I see the wonders of God.  Snow covered hills, trees, flowers, a river, mountains and clouds and a big blue sky.  The river is teaming with life.  We often see swans and geese and ducks, and the occasional otter.  Quite often a bald eagle will swoop past us or perch in the trees.  Deer frequent the paths in our yard.  Squirrels play in the trees.

 

God created it all.  In harmony.  And then there are the heavenly bodies.  A full moon on a clear night reflecting off the water of the river.  014
