Genesis 1:1-2

I spent a lot of time last week staring at the ocean. Because of our location this time, I could do that practically all day from sunrise to sunset, all without leaving the house, which was good because we didn’t have the warmest weather.

From the windows of the house we could see the oceans. We saw birds, and dolphins, and on the final day a perfect rainbow, a reminder of God’s promise from Genesis 9:13.

There are Biblial scholars who can expound on this much better than I.

But I know what I believe. I know what I see.

And when I look at creation, I see the hand of the creator.
