JULY 3rd 2021
THANK GOODNESS IT'S RAINING TODAY! The moisture is needed to refresh the earth and help swell the summer and autumn fruits.
has affected the surface of this planet drastically numerous times over the miilions of years it's been sweeping us effortlessly round our sun. No thanks to us. Purely by the forces of nature as overseen by the Creator, whom I shall continue to call God (the Trinitarian God of Christianity - just ONE God). He is always creasting and recreating as his imagination and will determine.
NOW in 2021
we have been made aware that climate changes taking place in our time are due, at least in part, to the careless way in which human beings have been treating our little planet for several centuries. And dealing with the prospect of disaster for our descendents needs immediate and combined drastic response by people of every nation.
IS THERE THE WILL TO DO THIS? Maybe there's enough widespread intention, though there remain those unconvinced of the need and who seem to want us to continue in carelessness.
HOW MEEK AM I?
"Blessed are the meek for they shall inherit the earth", said Jesus.
So, what I'm asking myself is a Good Question! It reminds me of the cartoon in The times many, many years ago, where we see a gardener being complimented by his Vicar for the beautifully tidey state of his garden. The Vicar says something along the lines of , "You see what you can achieve when you work together with God" The man replies, "Yes, but you should have seen it when he had it to himelf!"
The earth is a garden given to mankind to tend and care for..... Unlike the meek, who can at least cry out to their careless exploiters for justice, the earth itself, although a creation far, far more powerfula dn dn during than human lifge and society, cannot. It needs human voices to plead its cause by submitting to its demands for justice.
"Treat me properly!"
