Your creation astounds. The earth was formed with such violence, as worlds collided and fell apart, as meteors and volcanoes hurled projectiles, and yet there are places on this earth of such peace, of such beauty, that they astound the soul. Thank you, Lord, for giving us such a place to call home. Thank you for creating places that renew the body and the soul, that give us rest, that give us a glimmer of the beauty that exists in you. Thank you, Lord, for providing diversity and wonder and grandeur on a scale that reminds us how magnificent you are and how small we are, for this scale reminds us how small we are, how dependent we are on you, and how much you care for us. In the face of the mighty ocean, in the face of the massive mountain, we know that your love for each and every one of us is exceptional and overflowing, and for that amazing love we give you thanks and praise.
