...mOrE oN cReAtiOn...
I posted last time about the groaning of creation... which actually developed a loooong chat... I actually spoke about things to come...things I hope and long for ... and God not only shows us the groans of creation, but He also presents us glimpses of the redemption that is to come...what we all long and hope for...what creation itself also longs for...
...I'll just post the pictures and add some comments to it... well, I guess words were not even needed..
this first one is Violeta with Sambo...aren't they sweet !!!
"The wolf will live with the lamb,
the leopard will lie down with the goat,
the calf and the lion and the yearling together;
and a little child will lead them.
The cow will feed with the bear,
their young will lie down together,
and the lion will eat straw like the ox."
Isn't that a beautiful picture !!! That's what awaits us !!!
O.K, a cat and a dog is not exactly the same as a lion and a calf... but still ... :-)
Sambo, Pula and Duma...they love washing each other...so funny !!!
these are olives in one of the trees we picked these days...more on that on next post...
this is an amazing leaf I found...aren't those colours amazing ?!!
And these are our flowers blooming in splendour on the verge of winter time !!! Go figure !!!
despite all the wrong things we see around...God is still the Creator... Marvellous and Splendorous!!! the One who makes things that are not as if they were already...And He can still surprise us every single day ... in big things... or in small details... look around you !!!
I leave you with a thought to meditate on... a sign I saw in Castelo Branco... a quote by Gandhi...
“You can tell the greatness of a nation by how they treat their animals."
