Good Morning!

The air is so clear this morning, despite threats of rain, and I can see my breath! A heavy dew coupled with the low, raking light of the morning sun is turning the grass on the golf course behind the office blue like a Manet. And the color of the leaves still lingers over the trees. It's so perfect.

When I see how new and beautiful creation is every day I can't help but marvel at the grace God gives us.

This world is mangled by the affects of sin. It is drastically different from the creation that He intended. Creation is decaying and falling apart. But somehow it is still uniquely beautiful. Sunsets never get old. Its annual cyclic changes are never tedious. And every rule of aesthetics as we understand them is used to the fullest within the open composition of creation. Have you ever noticed that it is very hard to take a bad snapshot of a landscape?

God has given us far better than what we truly deserve.

This has nothing to do with anything but I just wanted to say hello. Haven't seen you for a long time. So hello. :)

good note, the regenerative cycle of the season changes is absolutely magnificent. it puzzles me as to how people can believe something that is so normal yet highly complex and ordered evolved from chaos---just my two cents
