Appreciating God's Creation

Good Morning, Afternoon, Evening!!!

In light of yesterday's vulnerable and a very LONG post, I'd like to lighten it up today.
The boys and I read a great book the other day from the library. 
It's entitled, Passport Into The Wild and was written by Jungle Jack Hanna.
The description reads: 
Explore the 7 continents in search of the most incredible animals on the planet!

As we read it, we traveled "by passport" into all the continents of earth and learned about their animals, cultures, and climates.  
Jack Hanna shares diary entries from his own personal visits describing the wonders of each place. 
In the beginning of the book he writes,
"Grab your passport, and together,  let's head out on this grand exploration of God's beautiful creation."
It was a fantastic book to spark conversations about God's creation and how WONDERFUL it all is!
I was inspired to spend more time talking about the wonders and beauty of God's creation with Grayden and Cole.  So starting mid-March, the boys and I are going to spend 7 weeks exploring the 7 continents of the world. 
We will draw maps, color pictures, read lots of books, study Scripture, and scour the Internet's vast resources talking about and appreciating ALL that God created. 
If we want our children to see God's creation for all its majesty, we must make time to explore and talk about it! In the everyday moments, as well as, in purposeful structured teaching moments. 
Will you join me in this quest?
"In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth...God saw all that he had made, and it was very good." Genesis 1: 1, 31a
"How many are your works, O Lord!  In wisdom you made them all; the earth is full of your creatures."  Psalm 104:24

Join me as I pray the following:

"I pray that my children would intellectually, emotionally, and spiritually grasp the truth that YOU are the creator of the heavens and the earth.  Just like You, may they explore Your creation and see that it ALL is very good.  And as they appreciate your creation through study, may they see your wisdom in each and every work."

Genesis 1:1, 31a & Psalm 104:24
