Nature Scenery, Garden Fenestra
Nature scenery affords us a glimpse of the glory of God. You've heard the oft-used term "God's country." Well, the fact is, if it's outside, in nature, it's God's country. From horses, to the moon, to camping.
With this site we want to try to open a window, if ever so small, to offer a glimpse of this glory. There are lots of sites with great nature photos (and we'll show you some of our own), but more than that we want to paint some word pictures and cause you to see things perhaps you've never considered before about nature.
For instance, ponder the Garden of Eden. Certainly many artists down through the ages have tried to capture some essence of it on canvas. What was that incredible place like? How was it for our first parents, Adam and Eve, to live in such unspoiled beauty? And what was it like for them to walk in the cool of the evening with the Creator of it all?
When considering nature scenery we could ask a thousand such questions and not even begin to exhaust them. As we've already mentioned, what about horses, the moon, and camping? Or even Leviathan? Through each of these, and so much more, we find a window into the glory of God in nature.
"The sweetest thing in all my life has been the longing...to find the place where all this beauty came from." C.S. Lewis
"Surely I spoke of things I did not understand, things too wonderful for me to know. You said, ‘Listen now, and I will speak; I will question you, and you shall answer me.’ My ears had heard of you but now my eyes have seen you." Job
So, in the spirit of the great explorers, poets and prophets, we invite you to join us on this journey to find glimpses of glory in nature.
