What a wildly wonderful world, God! You made it all, with Wisdom at your side, made earth overflow with your wonderful creations.

Happy Earth Day!
If you have time on this Earth Day, read through Psalm 104, an ancient text that (among other things) illustrates the intricate and impressive interdependence of this planet and its inhabitants. "We do well to marvel at the creation," writes Howard R. Macy in the Renovare Spiritual Formation Bible, "and bless God for the power, wisdom and generosity we see in it. It can help ward off complacency, self-sufficiency, and even a false sense of entitlement. We do well to remember that each moment, each breath, is a gift."
