In Wonder Of God's Creation

Today is Earth Day. All kinds of people celebrate this day in all kinds of ways~some quirkier than others. As for me, I would like to praise the Creator for all He has created and stand in wonder and awe at the work of His hands.
This song by the Newsboys as well as the video are a fitting tribute (well as fitting as this creature could find) of praise to the One who created it all. Praising the Creator not the creation is, in my humble opinion, how Earth Day should be celebrated.
Enjoy In Wonder by the Newsboys.

Nice post, Karinann, and inspiring video!

It's time for Catholics to reclaim creation in the Name of Our Creator and Redeemer:

Closing Prayer

Psalm 45: Canticle of Love to the King

My heart overflows with a good theme;
I address my verses to the King;
My tongue is the pen of a ready writer.
You are fairer than the sons of men;
Grace is poured upon Your lips;
Therefore God has blessed You forever.

Gird Your sword on Your thigh, O Mighty One,
In Your splendor and Your majesty!
And in Your majesty ride on victoriously,
For the cause of truth and meekness and righteousness;
Let Your right hand teach You awesome things.
Your arrows are sharp;
The peoples fall under You;
Your arrows are in the heart of the King’s enemies.

Your throne, O God, is forever and ever;
A scepter of uprightness is the scepter of Your kingdom.
You have loved righteousness and hated wickedness;
Therefore God, Your God, has anointed You
With the oil of joy above Your fellows.
All Your garments are fragrant with myrrh and aloes and cassia;
Out of ivory palaces stringed instruments have made You glad.
Kings’ daughters are among Your noble ladies;
At Your right hand stands the queen in gold from Ophir.
