“In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.” (Genesis 1:1)
All things around us have been created by God, and if we pay attention to nature, we will continuously glorify God for its beauty. Whether its the waves of the ocean, the clouds in the sky, or the trees and plants that cover the earth, all are part of God’s creation. If we look at nature and all its intricacies, we can be reminded of the Creator and be invited to appreciate God’s work with greater admiration. By spending time in nature, we can feel closer to God as we engulf ourselves in what he has made for us to enjoy.
I want creation to penetrate you with so much admiration that everywhere, wherever you may be, the least plant may bring to you the clear remembrance of the Creator.St. Basil the Great
