Carol and I are on the road working on our The Roaming Boomers enterprise.
As we were driving up the coast of Big Sur, I caught this scene out of the corner of my eye and pulled over to snap a photograph.
Furthermore, I was not alone. A great number of people were pulling their cars to the side of the road and photographing this very same scene.
Tourism is consistently in the top ten industries in the world. Even in a recession, there are untold numbers of people traveling up and down the coast of Big Sur to stand mute before this untold beauty.
"For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them. 20 For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse." (Roman 1:19-20)
God is visible, made known, through creation.
"My sheep hear my voice"...(John 10:27a)
I suppose some will marvel at the infinite randomness that could create such a scene. But I don't happen to believe that infinite randomness can create. I believe that just as this photograph required me to create it, so too must there be a Creator of creation.
And more importantly, I believe that this Creator's creation screams to us of His existence.
Further still, being a part of the Creator's creation, I believe that I am hard-wired to hear the Creator's call, his pull, to see his love of beauty through his very creation.
You will never get me to believe that the beauty of Big Sur was mere happenstance.
I believe in Yahweh.
The 1,121 posts I have written in this blog are my sincere efforts to get to know Him.
What do you see when you stare at creation's beauty?
PS I am still working along in my year-long chronological journey through the Bible, I have just been unable to keep with with the daily posts while traveling.
