earth


I'll make this quick and painless.
I love the Earth.
I just couldn't let Earth Day go with out giving it a shout out. {Even though this holiday(?) is kinda hilarious}
My Northwest roots taught me to love trees and mountains and water. I rejoiced in living close to all three.
My Parents kept a beautiful yard and grew an abbundant garden and composted. I eventually found mowing the lawn and weeding enjoyable. And throughout summer I loved eating the rewards of our garden.
I moved to Idaho and quickly fell in love with the wide open spaces, the big sky, and the spectacular sunsets.
I now live in Utah and on a daily basis gawk and oooo and awe at the mountains so close. I love the manicured lawns surrounding my house and the hikes and bike rides that are moments away.
God is the creator, this I believe. No cloud in the sky, No glorious sunset, No garden so lush, No mountain so tall, No grass so green, No flowers so colorful, No sky so magnanimus can deny it. It's a remarkable and comforting thought. God is the creator of all things.
