Eternal hope

Well, here it is. More than two months later. Have I lost all my readers? :)

We've been busy, busy, busy, but I've still been trying to do my part to make the world a cleaner, healthier place to live.

This is Holy Week, and I've been thinking a lot about God sending his son to die for the sins of man and then raising him from the dead to give us eternal hope. That's amazing love!

My faith is a big part of why I want to be green. Psalm 24 says "The earth is the Lord's, and everything in it, the world and all who live in it."

God entrusted this world to us, and it's our responsibility to take care of it and everything in it. And this goes beyond being green ... it means caring. Caring for the earth, caring for each other. Like it or not, the world is getting smaller and we are living in a global community. We can make a difference in our own backyard, our own community, or even in the world.

It reminds me of an old Greek proverb I've heard: A society grows great when old men plant trees in whose shade they know they will never sit.

What are you doing to care? How can we pass on a beautiful, healthy world to our children and grandchildren? Together, we can make a difference!
