Grace in Creation

(photo by Gayl Wright)

You alone are the Lord. You made the heavens, 
even the highest heavens, and all their starry host, 
the earth and all that is on it, the seas and all that is in them. 
You give life to everything, and the multitudes of heaven worship you. 
(Nehemiah 9:6 NIV)

This week my husband and I are spending time at the beach with his siblings and their spouses. Today has been a lovely day enabling us to have some needed rest and relaxation. God, in His grace, created us with the need for regular times of rest. That's why we have the Sabbath.  It's during these times that we can slow down, notice His creation and praise Him for His mighty works.  We are so small compared to all His greatness, but He loves us so much.  

There were lots of birds like these on the beach including one tiny bird that had an injured leg but was hopping pretty fast with his good one. It was pretty amazing!

The day was perfect for flying the kites that my sister-in-law brought. We enjoyed seeing their bright colors being carried on the currents of the wind.


Here are more interesting things we found as we walked along the beach.

This little beauty caught my eye right next to the path as we headed back towards the road.

Ah, Sovereign Lord, you have made the heavens and the earth
 by your great power and outstretched arm. 
Nothing is too hard for you.
(Jeremiah 32:17 NIV)
