Hopefully it is okay for me to use this picture.  I took it from a public news publication.  I love it. 

My family enjoy our baby rabbits, and we love watching how the mother rabbit watches as we tend and play with her babies.  This mother has the same watchful eye.  “Okay, I can’t stop you from taking my baby, but you had better be aware that I am watching!”

It reminds me of how God watches us, and of the fact that he expects us to do due diligence to his world.  God prepared people to take care of his world, gave them dominion over all the earth, with a commandment, “Love thy neighbor as thyself.”  And he built in an automatic instinct to follow that command.  It is often at conflict with the sinful nature that also comes with being human.  But He is watching.  How are you interacting with land, animals, and people?

The resources in the air, soil, and water are given for our use, but we should clean up after ourselves. And as far as possible we should restore what we use. For instance, trees are a necessary source of shelter and sometimes heat. Keep a cycle of replanting going.

A healthy fear and reverence for God will do worlds of good for the environment!

About oneta hayes

ABOUT ME Hello. To various folks I am Neat’nee, Mom, Grandma Neta, Gramma, Aunt Neta, Aunt Noni, Aunt Neno, and Aunt Neto (lots of varieties from little nieces and nephews). To some I’m more like “Didn’t you used to be my teacher?” or “Don’t I know you from someplace?” To you, perhaps, I am a Fellow Blogger. Not “fellow” like a male or a guy, but “fellow” like a companion or an adventurer. I would choose to be Grandma Blogger, and have you pull up a chair, my website before you, while I tell you of some days of yore. I have experienced life much differently than most of you. It was and is a good life. I hope to share nuggets of appreciation for those who have gone before me and those who come after me. By necessity you are among those who come after me and I will tell you of those who came before. Once upon a time in a little house on a prairie - oops, change that lest I commit plagiarism - and change that “house on the prairie” to “dugout on the prairie.” So my story begins...

    Reading the OT prophets is an eye-opener for any who think Father does not care about His world.
    2 Chronicles 7:14 is simply one case in point; then the righteous humble themselves and pray, what is God’s promise: “I will heal their land.”
    ❤️&🙏, c.a.

    The OT is rich in paving our way to understand and appreciate the NT. Submission to the Word of God will do wonders for the world. Will it happen? Yes. When? I don’t know. Thanks for the comment.
