Bluebell Bellflower & Lake Superior

Seeking and Finding

When we pause to notice creation all around, us we become aware of provisions that demonstrate God’s love.

Along the coast of Lake Superior, a bluebell flower emerges among the rocks. Along a path a trillium with petals sways in the breeze.

The flowers appear on the earth, the time of singing has come, the voice of the turtle dove is heard in our land. Song of Solomon 2:12 ESV

In the spring, buds on the trees will unfurl with new leaves. I enjoy hearing the rustle of the leaves as a light breeze comes.


Let the heavens be glad, and let the earth rejoice; let the sea roar, and all that fills it: let the field exult, and everything in it! Then shall all the trees of the forest sing for joy before the Lord, for he comes, for he comes to judge the earth. Psalm 96: 11-13 ESV

Away from the city, hundreds of stars shine in the night sky. The stars in their constellations are majestic.

Lift your eyes and look to the heavens: Who created all these? He who brings out the starry host one by one, and calls them each by name. Because of his great power and mighty strength not one of them is missing. Isaiah 40:26 NIB

The Bible is a library of books given by God. We have his word to read! We can explore the questions that we have and learn.

But these are written that so that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name. John 20:31 ESV
