WPC: A gift from Mother Earth

 

In honor of upcoming Earth Day, the WordPress Photo Challenge topic for this week is Earth.

All you have to do is open your eyes or take a deep breath in to appreciate all the gifts that Mother Earth has given us.  With no help from mankind, God uses Mother Earth to send us gifts every day:

  • The fresh smells of roses
  • The bright color of a peacock’s feathers
  • The sound of waves crashing on the beach

We can get no credit for these gifts.  It is God and God alone.

Then, sometimes God gives men the knowledge to create amazing new treasures from Mother Earth.  Paper, medicine, food, and one of favorites…

Wine.

Even if you are not a fan of wine, you have to admit the beauty of the vineyards themselves is gift alone.

  3. Beautiful vineyards and great skies! Reminds me of a favorite verse.
    Behold, the days come, says the Lord, that the plowman shall overtake the reaper, and the treader of grapes him that sows seed; and the mountains shall drop sweet wine, and all the hills shall flow with it.
    Amos 9:13
