While in Alaska, I was often in awe over the beauty that surrounded me. From the rocky mountains, to the lush forest, to the icy glacier fed creeks, it is all magnificent and so very different than what I typically see in the Midwest. I found myself thinking about how much God must have enjoyed creating it all.
It causes me to believe that God did not rushed through the creation of life in just 6 days. For just as I find joy in creating art, I know that God too finds great joy in creating. I believe that just like any master artist, God took His time enjoying each step of the process. He let His creativity run wild, and in artistic abandonment He formed Earth.
