Isaiah 61:11 For as the earth brings forth its bud, as the garden causes the things that are sown in it to spring forth, so the Lord God will cause righteousness and praise to spring forth before all the nations.
As I look at this nasturtium leaf, I am amazed all over again at the ingenuity and creativeness of this Creator God. Every leaf, whether on plant or tree is a solar panel of sorts that converts solar energy into growing and nourishing power to whatever plant it happens to be attached to. Look at all the roads and avenues and streets and all of the plots of ground that house energy systems. There is a mass of technology that is going on in this one leaf. What a magnificent conversion machine this is. One might call it a green machine. (And to think, some people have convinced themselves in the myth that this and all other forms of life just evolved from some primordial soup.) Personally, I think it takes far more to believe that than it does to believe in a Creator God of love who wants every one of us to win the game of life.
