Earth Psalms - June 2010

Years ago, my husband gave me a gold necklace with two small golden geese flying side by side to celebrate our anniversary.  The geese represent eternal love. 

Geese mate for life.  If a goose becomes too old or sick to continue in formation, the mate and another will fly with the weaker between them to a place with food and water.  The two will wait and comfort the weaker one until it is able to fly or dies.  Only then will the stronger geese rejoin and are welcomed by another flock. 

Geese fly in a V formation.  The goose in front actually creates air movement that makes it easier for the birds flying behind.  When the lead bird grows weary, another moves into lead position.  The oldest and the youngest geese fly at the back and honk like a cheering section for those ahead.   By working together as a unit, these birds can fly great distances that they could never accomplish alone. 

May we stay faithful...

Have you ever thought about the number of species and subspecies, each unique, each with a job to do? 

We’re supposed to believe they each had to evolve over eons of time?  God’s Word is filled with information.  He must have known mankind would try to cut Him out of the equation of how life on this planet came to be.  Why else would He say repeatedly that each plant and animal would procreate “after their kind”?   In other words, each beetle listed above...
