Leaf lurking at my church

Leaf lurking has been going on in this back-ridge Appalachian parish for some weeks now. It’s beautiful weather for another 10 days or so. Pictured above is the tree out front of Prince of Peace Catholic Church in Robbinsville. Looks like a Canadian Maple. Canadians are welcome to come to church here as well of course.

We get lots of biker clubs, lots of “Mini” clubs, lots of Porsche clubs, lots of Corvette clubs etc. I’ve even seen small more exclusive groups of Bugatti clubs. Mostly, it’s the druggy-car clubs that are to be seen on the streets and by-ways. It is what it is.

I love the Creator’s creation. And you have to love the Creator in order to see the actual beauty of His creation and let you heart and soul sing in praises not of the Creator’s creation so much as the Creator Himself, He who is goodness and truth and kindness and truth and love and truth and mercy and truth. The Truth is Beautiful and is One.

I’m not too sure how many people rejoice with the beauty of creation all around them. Lot’s of nature lovers I know I’m convinced do not so much rejoice in creation, but in their manipulation of creation, especially for political ends: all very dark, all very ugly. It is what it is. Our Lord has tried to do something about that, standing in our place, the Innocent for the guilty, offering us a justly won pardon if we want it.

    Thank you for this. Getting people to think about the beauty of creation will hopefully lead them to the Creator, who made heaven and earth! We are members of the Creator club 🙂
