Miraculous things happen all around us

Published: Wednesday, May 28, 2014 1:15 a.m. CST

As a child, I walked the rows in the vegetable garden with my dad and watched him drop each seed in the ground. I wondered how those seeds that look so much alike grew up into such different plants. It seemed like they knew what they were supposed to be.

The flower seeds all looked the same, but the flowers bloomed into very different and beautiful flowers. I thought, “How could anyone not see God in all these miraculous things that are happening all around us?” Life grew and bloomed everywhere. 

Beautiful, precious puppies and kittens were being born. God’s hand is on each one of those tiny creatures. They give us laughter and love, but the Lord God gives you life and love everlasting. 

“Verily, verily, I say unto you, he that believeth in me hath everlasting life.” (John 6:47)

“But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us.” (Ephesians 2:4)

No. It would be too great a burden for homeowners to dispose of fallen leaves in other ways.
