This morning in Creation I stayed put, slept in a bit more, and enjoyed our backyard and the sounds and smells and sights of children waking. It has been a blessing to spend a bit of extra time with my wife in the mornings this summer. As the school year is over, the Lord has ordained our circumstances to allow for this treat that we have not experienced in a few years. Instead of racing off to work I make coffee, get a bit of extra time in God’s word and watch the family wake up around me. What a blessing!
Today’s audio exploration touches on planting and gardening. Here is God’s covenant with Creation following his great judgement on all the earth:
And God said: “This is the sign of the covenant which I make between Me and you, and every living creature that is with you, for perpetual generations: I set My rainbow in the cloud, and it shall be for the sign of the covenant between Me and the earth. It shall be, when I bring a cloud over the earth, that the rainbow shall be seen in the cloud; and I will remember My covenant which is between Me and you and every living creature of all flesh; the waters shall never again become a flood to destroy all flesh. The rainbow shall be in the cloud, and I will look on it to remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that is on the earth.” And God said to Noah, “This is the sign of the covenant which I have established between Me and all flesh that is on the earth.” – Genesis 9:12-17
