It's all in the way that you look at it...

The Grand Canyon via iPhone and Camtastic App
I was remembering my recent family trip to the Grand Canyon this summer. The first time we as a family gazed upon the immense beauty of the canyon it was a spiritual moment we all shared. I was thinking this morning how it must have been everyday for Jesus appreciating the wonders of the Father's creative expression found in nature. The more I thought about it the more it hit me that when Jesus looked at nature he most likely didn't see creation in past tense but more as an ongoing experience. A lot of times we look at the world and think, "Wow! Look what God created". The reality is that God continues to create 24-7, 365 days a year–a continuing cycle of birth, life, death, and rebirth. If Father God ever decided to turned his loving gaze away everything we know would wither and turn to dust. So the next time you find yourself awed by nature take a step back and realize it is a beautiful work in progress–it's all in the way you look at it.
