Today’s Scripture: Genesis 1:20-22

20 Then God said, “Let the waters swarm with fish and other life. Let the skies be filled with birds of every kind.” 21 So God created great sea creatures and every living thing that scurries and swarms in the water, and every sort of bird—each producing offspring of the same kind. And God saw that it was good. 22 Then God blessed them, saying, “Be fruitful and multiply. Let the fish fill the seas, and let the birds multiply on the earth.”

Lessons From The Pond

As we end our week about lessons from the pond, I wanted to share another poem with you from Mary Oliver. It’s called: “Spring at Blackwater: I Go Through The Lessons Already Learned”.


He gave the fish

her coat of foil,

and her soft eggs.

He made the kingfisher’s

quick eye

and her peerless, terrible beak.

He made the circles

of the days and the seasons

to close tightly,

and forever –


then open again.


Today’s Prayer

Thank you God for using nature to remind us of truths about you and about life. Help us to see you and your handiwork today. Help us to remember that you created it all.
