Nature Study

Psalm 65: 6-12

who formed the mountains by your power,

having armed yourself with strength,

7 who stilled the roaring of the seas,

the roaring of their waves,

and the turmoil of the nations.

8 The whole earth is filled with awe at your wonders;

where morning dawns, where evening fades,

you call forth songs of joy.

9 You care for the land and water it;

you enrich it abundantly.

The streams of God are filled with water

to provide the people with grain,

for so you have ordained it.[a]

10 You drench its furrows and level its ridges;

you soften it with showers and bless its crops.

11 You crown the year with your bounty,

and your carts overflow with abundance.

12 The grasslands of the wilderness overflow;

the hills are clothed with gladness.

I treasure this time with our children and they love it to. We need to spend more time outside.
We haven't done nature study in a long time, we will definitely be spending more out in God's world.

Psalm 19:1-6
The heavens declare the glory of God;

the skies proclaim the work of his hands.

 Day after day they pour forth speech;

night after night they reveal knowledge.

 They have no speech, they use no words;

no sound is heard from them.

 Yet their voice[b] goes out into all the earth,

their words to the ends of the world.

In the heavens God has pitched a tent for the sun.

 It is like a bridegroom coming out of his chamber,

like a champion rejoicing to run his course.

 It rises at one end of the heavens

and makes its circuit to the other;

nothing is deprived of its warmth
