It's Just a Tree...Or is It??

It was the third day.
God was in the process of
designing and creating a new

He spoke and trees,
flowers and vegetables

There was no "hocus pocus"...
simply a quiet command and from
nothing came beauty beyond

Genesis puts it this way...

Then God said, "Let the land produce vegetation: seed-bearing plants and trees on the land that bear fruit with seed in it, according to their various kinds." And it was so.
(Don't you just love that? "And it was so." This is crazy good!)

The land produced vegetation: plants bearing seed according to their kinds and trees bearing fruit with seed in it according to their kinds. And God saw that it was good.

And there was evening, and there was morning—the third day.

Looking at this gorgeous tree at the corner of our home makes me think how amazing God must be.
If this is a representation of how
He thinks, creatively.
We bloggers are always on the hunt for the most creative and beautiful blog...
we compare ourselves, we admire...
BUT if God had a blog...
it would be a must read
for all of us because...

He is the very definition of Creative!

While we labor away with our hands arranging and rearranging pre-existing matter into lovely things, He simply spoke and "nothing" became all that we know!

He is Powerful!

The closest I come to verbally causing a change
in my environment is when I tell
my children to do something
and they do it.
The house can look pretty good in
short order... at least on the surface.
Insert grimacing smile here....

Nope, haven't mastered speaking all of the
plants of the planet into existence yet.

What a relief that I am not responsible for
this. God is so good at it anyway...just
look at his handiwork!

Ahhh...thinking the thoughts of Springtime
and thankfulness today!
