Sometimes I wonder about the thoughts of God’s mind and heart when He looks at the wilderness.
I know He loves the works of His hands – His creation – but I have to wonder what He thinks and what He feels when He looks at the natural world.
Just what does God feel during a glorious sunrise?
Or what does He think when the new plants spring out of the barren earth in the new spring growth?
When the snow smooths the mountain sides and makes the world full of sparkling jewel-like ice crystals, does it make Him happy?
Heaven is more glorious than earth could ever be. But I have to wonder: Is part of the wonder and awe that we feel actually a connection to the joy in God’s heart over the morning and evening, the turning of the seasons, the changes in the natural world that He spoke into being.
