The power of God is present at all places, even in the tiniest leaf…  God is currently and personally present in the wilderness, in the garden, and in the field.

MARTIN LUTHER

 

When I look at the night sky and see the work of your fingers–the moon and the stars you have set in place–what are mortals that you should think of us, mere humans that you should care for us?

PSALM 8:3-4

 

The initial step for a soul to come to knowledge of God is contemplation of nature.

IRENAEUS OF LYONS

All creation anticipates the day when it will join God’s children in glorious freedom from death and decay.  For we know that all creation has been groaning as in the pains of childbirth right up to the present time.

ROMANS 8:21-22

The heavens declare the glory of God not by speaking in voice audible to the sensible ears, but by manifesting to us through their own greatness, the power of the Creator, and when we remark on their beauty, we give glory to their Maker as the best of all Artificers.

JOHN DAMASCENE

 

The Lord God placed the man in the Garden of Eden to tend and care for it.

GENESIS 2:15

Settle down, get to know your place, and dig in.
