A good way to start the New Year, or any day of the year for that matter, is to see the beauty and truth which God has put in His creation for us to cherish and enjoy. Creation speaks to us about the Creator without using any words (Psalm 19) and inspires us to worship Him in thanksgiving.
A few of my 2013 photos from the flora world.
And God said, “Let the earth put forth vegetation, plants yielding seed, and fruit trees bearing fruit in which is their seed, each according to its kind, upon the earth.” And it was so. The earth brought forth vegetation, plants yielding seed according to their own kinds, and trees bearing fruit in which is their seed, each according to its kind. And God saw that it was good. (Genesis 1:11-12)
And to every beast of the earth, and to every bird of the air, and to everything that creeps on the earth, everything that has the breath of life, I have given every green plant for food.” And it was so. (Genesis 1:30)
And a few of my 2013 photos from the world of animals.
And God saw that it was good. And God blessed them, saying, “Be fruitful and multiply and fill the waters in the seas, and let birds multiply on the earth.” (Genesis 1:21-22)
