Born and raised as a city girl you tend to stick to the city ways, however, coming to Augusta, Georgia it changed all that. My city environment has been now changed to barren lands, forests, farms with animals, open roads, deer accidents etc. The country is the last place my hubby and I would ever think to live; but in the last several months we have grown to love the beauty that God has presented to us over here.
In youth group we are studying about God’s creation. I don’t know about you but I tend to skim through the book of Genesis because growing up in Sunday School we learned the basic order of creation (It just stuck in our heads). However, now as adults we have the opportunity to really read through the book of Genesis, study it, dig into it and most of all praise God for it. I never praised God enough for HIS beautiful creation we get to enjoy now.
Psalm 33:5 ~ “…The earth is full of the goodness of the Lord”
So here is the ALMOST best part haha. Last night I was SOOO CLOSE to witnessing a birth of an animal. A baby goat. You might be laughing because most people who know me would know that I would NOT touch a goat, let alone stand by it while it gives birth to her babies. (But anywhooo, couple hours before I was planning to visit, the goat gave birth to TRIPLETS!!! 🙂
I was very disappointed in missing the birth; but I just have to say that the few moments we spent with the triplets was a beautiful experience.
God is a very detailed; He thinks of absolutely everything because His creation is so precious to Him. God created everything with a purpose to serve good.
Genesis 1:25 ~ “And God made the beast of the earth according to its kind, cattle according to its kind, and everything that creeps on the earth according to its kind. And God saw that it was good”
God also blessed his creation.
Genesis 1:28 ~ Then God blessed them, and God said to them, Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it…”
The entire day yesterday my excitement and anticipation kept growing and growing because I wanted to see this baby goat fill the earth with its goodness. I can just imagine what Mary and Joseph went through; the excitement they felt in carrying a Son that (they didn’t know yet until an Angel told them), but would take away each and every person’s sin. With all His love for us He held it upon that Cross and on His shoulders. He is so Good. His love for us is so good. His beauty is so good.
Let’s not take His creation for granted friends. What we see, enjoy and most of all live on is from Him. So to Him belongs all glory. To Him belongs all thanks for the goodness that He has given us to serve and spread to all those who need to hear His name.
The Jachens family, you guys rock!! Thanks for letting us come to your home and spend time with the triplets. We will never forget it ❤
