Nature Walk

You can almost smell the delicious changing of the seasons in the crisp air. Isn't it a marvel -- this beautiful, life-sustaining world?! Many years ago Mom composed a catchy melody to Romans 1:20, explaining to us that God's character is broadcasted by His handiwork. From the majestic galaxies to the intricate complexities of the 'simple' cell. 

"For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—
His eternal power and divine nature—
have been clearly seen, 
being understood from what has been made, 
so that people are without excuse."

Her tune still sings through my heart when I'm out enjoying nature. This week [while touring in Wisconsin] we had the opportunity to take a nature walk around the lake near Dan and Bethany's home. It was a gorgeous day and we were thrilled with the exercise, fresh air, and opportunity to explore a new area. 

Unfortunately, we only brought our phones to capture the beauty. But hopefully this gives you a glimpse. And just maybe you'll take the opportunity to step outside and spend a little time marveling at the creative wisdom of our Creator, trademarked all around us! You'll be glad you did! 

Good times together

Never enough time with this little sweetheart! 

"The heavens declare the glory of God;
And the firmament shows His handiwork."
Ps 19:1
