As I look at this picture, I think it was very good, but God reserved those words for His ultimate creation, man.  Norma and I have visited many beautiful places, but this place, Glacier Bay, Alaska, is one of our favorites.  Looking at the magnificence of this scene of creation does draw me to God; it beckons me to contemplate Him.  The splendor of the work He did in creation is mind-boggling to say the least.  In contrast to this view, I can look at the beauty of the Sonoran Desert near Tucson and see the same degree of splendor even though the scenes are about as disparate as possible.  I stand in awe wherever I look in God's creation, but I am even more in awe of what He did for me at Calvary.  God, the Father, sacrificed His Son, Jesus, so that He could provide me with a heavenly eternal home.  Forgive me if I sound self-centered when I say He provided a heavenly eternal home for me, but He did it for you, also.  He did it for all of us, and He did it for each of us, every single one of us--no exceptions.  It is up to us, every single one of us--no exceptions-to decide whether to accept and receive this most gracious gift of salvation or not.  I look forward to seeing you in the heavenly eternal home that God has created.

"Then God said, 'Let the waters beneath the sky flow together into one place, so dry ground may appear.'  And that is what happened.  God called the dry ground 'land' and the waters 'seas.'  And God saw that it was good." (NLT)

Genesis 1:9-10

Let Dry Ground Appear
