Thank you! Happy Earth Day to you. And now I’m going to go back outside and watch things grow and soak of the sheer beauty of it all!

Thank you for this one, Danny. The title says it all! O that we would sustain that energy and openness to light with the help of God.

Alex wrote:
We snicker at civilizations that prayed to the sun, giving thanks that it returned each day. Are we really so different? Don't we in some form pray for those things we need, but are out of our control and beyond our understanding?

Debbie wrote:
I love this. I can feel the warmth of the sun as I turn my face up to the sky. and hope for willingness to align my will with God's will for me.

Amen and Amen about the will, Danny.


I spent a lot of time writing the prayer to go with this photo. Usually I try to touch too many subjects. One that barely made it into this prayer is the idea that growing plants praise God better than our houses. If that is true, shouldn’t we spend more time in our gardens than our houses? Spend more money on gardens than houses?
