First Book of the Bible:Genesis

A New Beginning

Meditation (Genesis l:1-3)  In the beginning, when God created the universe, the earth was formless and desolate.  The raging ocean that covered everything was engulfed in total darkness and the power of God was moving over the water.  Then God commanded, “Let there be light” – and light appeared.

 Dear Heavenly Father,  We see beauty all around us – blue skies with gentle clouds floating by, pure white snow sitting softly on fields, trees and hedges.  As we drove back from Church in Rockland, we got a glimpse of the Ottawa River and beyond the picturesque Gatineau Hills.  I am so grateful for all the beautiful scenery surrounding us.  After reading the story of creation, I am in awe of the beauty You create, Lord, and I thank You for all of Your creation.  In Jesus’ name,  Amen.
