God speaks through his Son.  God also speaks through his creation.  His finger prints are everywhere.  His ways are in it.  Intricate design!  Breathtaking beauty!   Serendipitous sounds!  Captivating fragrances!   Tantalizing tastes!  Failure to have appreciation for the creation is a failure of gratitude to the Creator.  Creation has more to say to us than we have heard.  Creation is not god, but God’s voice is in it!  Listen!  Focus!  Participate!  Feel awe!

 “For this is what the LORD says — he who created the heavens, he is God; he who fashioned and made the earth, he founded it; he did not create it to be empty, but formed it to be inhabited — he says: “I am the LORD, and there is no other” Isaiah 45:18 (NIV).
