earth day crafting

I've always been a fan of Earth Day.  Part of it could be because of the hippie blood I got from my mama, but the majority is because of a very simple sentence.

Genesis 1:1 God created the heavens and the earth

I live on this earth that God created and as his children we should be good stewards of what he has given us.  One of those things is the beautiful world we live in.  I am not going to go on and on about recycling and clean energy and organic farming and all the other things people argue about some of which are extremely important and some of which are a little ridiculous.

I'm just going to encourage myself and hopefully you to think, pray, and research scripture that shows me what it means to be a good steward of all things God has given us and how his creation pertains to that.

So anyway, to celebrate Earth Day the boys and I read a couple books and talked about creation and what we could do to take care of it.  Then we had fun coloring some coffee filters with markers and watching the color spread when we sprayed it with water.  Now that I think about it celebrating being good stewards of creation and using up a bunch of paper filters doesn't really go together but they were made of recycled paper so that's something right?

Oh well, it was a fun activity and good conversation with my fellas :)
