Prayer: Creator God, we marvel at your wonderful work. Glorious are the oceans, mountains, meadows, and forests. We praise you for all you have given us. May the glory of the Lord abound in our lives forever. AMEN.

Reflection: I am a huge fan of taking walks by the ocean, in the mountains, and at camp. I love the sights, sounds, and smells. It is marvelous how what all God created works together. The many and various creatures are fun to look for. I like seeing the creatures scamper through the forest, or in the dunes. One thing I do not like to see is the trash that is scattered in the dunes. One of the walks I take twice a year is on a road side picking up trash. I can marvel at the creation all around me, and also tend it by keeping it litter free. As the Psalmist honors God in his writing/songs so we too can honor God in our songs and writings. We can also honor God by taking care of what God has created so it is around for others to enjoy.
