I Wonder . . .

Thoughts while on a cruise.

Genesis 1:31
And God saw every thing that he had made,
and, behold, it was very good.
And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.

Dear God,

Did you plan all this when you first spoke and divided the heavens from the seas;

when you spoke and the earth separated from the water?
Could you see what your creation, man,
d the potential to do as he questioned and asked and tried?

The first man to build a raft or canoe – was he thankful?

Were the Vikings thankful for their dragon lead ships?

How about the Chinese with their junks, were they thankful?

Was Christopher Columbus thankful for the Nina?

Those that built the Mayflower, what did they think?

Were all these builders and users thankful?
Did they appreciate the improvements gained from one to another?
Did they realize how each improvement served the purpose so completely?

As I ride on this ship –
that, except for a little quiet rocking and
seeing the wake through the water,
hardly seems like riding or traveling.
I marvel at how far this ship has come from a raft.
wonder at the ability God has given man to question and create,
building, improving, and fulfilling their dreams.

Are we, am I, fulfilling God’s dream for us?
What did He see for me when he said “Let there be light”?
As I have made my choices and planned and dreamed –
Have I been thankful for my steps and my improvements?

Can God still look at me as his creation and say…It is good?
Amen.
