When you come on something that is good, first thing to do is share it with whoever you can find.  That way, the good spreads out to where no telling it will go. – The Education of Little Tree

Nature is full of good things. Mother Earth, her plants, animals, and resources, provides us with everything from food, shelter, and clothing, to cars and cell phones. All that we have comes from Mother Earth. We mine in order to build roads, homes, buildings, transportation, and communication structures. We grow, harvest, and hunt for our food. Trees provide us with shade, fruit, wood, and lumber.  The list of Earth’s contributions to the well-being of each of us is endless.

None of us can escape the huge blessing that Earth and Nature is continuously providing for us. Let us be grateful for all that Earth and Nature provides; blessing all that we have, mindful of our use of Earth’s beauty and bounty, and open to the example of Earth’s never-ending sharing of her gifts.
