Look around… The beautiful trees and grass, the smell of lovely flowers, graceful animals, all of Nature… The beautiful blue sky, the sun, the moon, thousands of stars, a rainbow, everything which is outside this world of ours… The glittering heavens above, the night sky, so bright and sparkling, beautiful beauty we can see if we just look up… We can only see them at night, when the absence of our own bright sunlight allows us to look upwards into the immeasurable depths of the mighty Universe… The beautiful clouds, part of the heavens with sunlight shining on their edges, the great variety and beauty of the clouds above us.
Animals are living, breathing beings. Each species was created to live in the world alongside humans. The natural world is rich with beautiful animals that revel the wonders of creation. Both animal and human life reflect God’s creative power.
The glorious part of all creation can be seen while watching the sun rise or set and the seasons turn, staring up in awe at the stars in the heavens, walking in nature away from the hustle and bustle of human activity, resting in the fields and the streams, delighting in God’s animals and creatures.
Love all God’s creation, both the whole and every grain of sand. Love every leaf, every ray of light. Love the animals, love the plants, love each separate thing. If you love each thing, you will perceive the mystery of God in all; and when once you perceive this, you will from that time on grow every day to a fuller understanding of it until you come at last to love the whole world with a love that will then be all-embracing and universal. ~ Feodor Dostoevski
