Evelyn Underhill once said, “In the created world around us, we see the Eternal Artist, Eternal Love at work.”  In the same vein, Gerald Manley Hopkins wrote, “The world is charged with the grandeur of God.”  Now I know some have said that they don’t understand this fixation with nature.  Some don’t understand why one would marvel at the uniqueness of every snowflake - each one a tiny creation never to be duplicated.  Or at the miracle of taste buds - ever wonder why yours respond differently than mine to the same flavoured stimulus?  Or at the day-four miracle of the creation of seasons - a simple tilting of the earth’s axis in relation to the sun bringing forth profound results.
