I am thankful for the sun, the sky, the ocean, flowers and trees.

Thankful for our Great Creator.

When God created the earth, He spent the first five days

getting it ready for oxygen breathing life.  On the sixth day,

He created mankind and animals.  That has always been a

wonder for me.  God showed His loving-kindness before mankind

even existed.  


Psalm 19:1, The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork.

Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge.

There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard.

Their line is gone out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world. In them hath he set a tabernacle for the sun,

Which is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, and rejoiceth as a strong man to run a race.

His going forth is from the end of the heaven, and his circuit unto the ends of it: and there is nothing hid from the heat thereof.


When God created the LIGHTS on Day 4, not to be confused with the
LIGHT He created on Day 1,
the most powerful of all lights to those dwelling
on the Earth is the Sun. 
Without the Sun, there is no life. 
I love the illustration David gives in Psalm 19. 
The Sun shoots into the sky like a new groom
rejoicing over his marriage or as a strong man running a race.
Powerful indeed.
The Sun emerges faithfully from its tabernacle,
the ends of the world.  Amazing.
Morning light is always welcome.  
Evening sunset is always beautiful.
Interesting that Without the Son of God, there is no eternal life.  
I John 5:11, And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son.
John 8:12, Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying,
I am the light of the world:
he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.
