Inspired by God’s Creation

MiloDriving along the great Mississippi River to see the fall leaves has always been a tradition in our family. Visiting the zoo and being amazed at the animals, often tickled by their behaviors . . . another tradition. Of course, walking along sandy beaches collecting shells is also high on our vacation list.

When we get home, our loyal little dog, Milo, is always waiting for us.

Our family has many traditions, and many of them start with being surrounded by God’s awesome creation (and going home to it in the cute form of our pet). I can’t help but pause to worship the Creator. I can’t help but think of His power over the universe and in our lives.

God’s creation is an incredible place to start with our readers, too! Who isn’t drawn into the presence of His majesty as they read? Who isn’t inspired by the Creator?
