March is a fantastic month to watch nature. Daylight hours are rapidly expanding, wildlife is beginning to move and plants are starting to wake up from a long winters nap. You can't help but notice the changing seasons with a springtime walk along the shoreline of Lake Superior. The colors, climate, and fresh air join together to shout out that a new season has begun.
In this picture, shore ice melts away along with the fading light of day in one last display of winter beauty.
As I stood on the ice crust, I thought how amazing water really is. It is the only substance that is found naturally on earth in all three forms: liquid, gas, and solid and that there is actually the same amount of water on earth now as there was when the earth was created.
Another fascinating property of water is that when it freezes, it becomes lighter, which is why ice floats on water. If God hadn't created water with this unique characteristic, ice would sink and eventually lakes and oceans would freeze solid, making life impossible on earth.
God outfitted this little planet of ours with every provision we need and than gave us an ability to enjoy Him through the work of His creation.
For He draws up the drops of water; they distill rain into mist, which the clouds pour down and drop on man plentifully.
Also can any understand the spreading of the clouds, or the crashing of His canopy?
Behold, He spreads His light on it, and He covers the bottom of the sea. (Job 36)
