“July 4 – Today, little children, I invite you, through a personal experience of prayer, to discover the beauty of God’s creatures.” Medjugorje and the Word – Alice Mindrum
With my new beautiful faith and my knowledge of biology, I am constantly drawing strength from all of Nature that surrounds me in beautiful rural Sebastopol, California.
I am confident that every bird, flower, tree and grass that I see, has been designed for me out of love – confident that each of these creatures contains its Creator’s autograph in its DNA.
This confidence/faith enables me to be fed/loved by my surroundings, just as a husband is fed by a meal lovingly prepared for him by his wife (fed emotionally in addition to the physical nourishment).
I can remember, before my conversion, being in similar surroundings and finding them pleasant, but coming away from them with a feeling of emptiness, of being starved.
For someone who still clings to evolution, the emptiness of meaning of their surroundings can only be poorly replaced by the pride of knowing that they haven’t succumbed to the superstitions of the ignorant masses.
Without this precious food, men are reduced to trying to replace it by making more money, gaining more power over others, and women to having sexier bodies in order to attract the men with money and power.
Their empty lives are paraded before us whenever we pass through the checkout lines at the supermarket.
