They say the devil is in the details, but they've got it all wrong. It's hard to miss God’s glory expressed in the wondrous details of nature. I went for a walk in the woods yesterday at Rock Creek Park and found this sweetgum tree acorn -- and I found myself thinking about God and singing Rich Mullins.
And if I were a painter I do not know which I'd paint
The calling of the ancient stars or assembling of the saints
And there's so much beauty around us for just two eyes to see
But everywhere I go I'm looking
And once I went to Appalachia for my father he was born there
And I saw the mountains waking with the innocence of children
And my soul is still there with them wrapped in the songs they brought
And the Holy King of Israel loves me here in America
--Rich Mullins, Here in America (1993)
Nice work, the pictures are amazing. WooHoo!! Peace out Homie.
