"In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth." Genesis 1:1

A passage I'm sure everyone knows, it is one of the most well known passages of the whole bible. But in that short sentence its describing something we cant even begin to imagine. All of creation every star in the sky, every distant galaxy, every blade of grass, every tree, all the gems deep in the earth - everything - God made it all.  

I was recently lucky enough to spend the weekend away in Arthur's pass with TKY. Its roughly a 2 hour drive outside of Christchurch and is a beautiful place. As much as I love the city, with it's mixed bag of people and the different building styles and all, sometimes it's really nice to get out of the city and see more of God's creation. We spent one afternoon walking up to Devils Punchbowl, a stunning waterfall. Surrounded by mountains looking at the waterfall, my mind was again hit with the fact that God made it. Everything I was seeing was created by the same God that loves and knows me

So, if you get the chance sometime in the next week, leave the warmth of the house and venture out to find some of God's creation in nature. It really is breathtaking.
