The Earth

In the beginning darkness spread its veil,
before the setting of the first golden sunset,
earlier than man stepping on the earth;
at first ALL was righteous, good, upright.
Originally, it was God who made a perfect, pleasant place for all to live in harmony!

In the end, it becomes the creation’s honor,
as time trickles to an expectant climax, 
to finish the race with full responsibility,
respect and in the resolution of all time
tending to things with a positive closure.
One day soon, there will be a new Earth!

“The earth is the Lord’s, and all its fullness, The world and those who dwell therein. For He has founded it upon the seas, And established it upon the waters.”

Psalm 24:1-2

“Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and earth had passed away, and the sea was no more.”

Revelation 21:1

  1. I’m a fan of Christian ideas of Rapture, as it will lighten the Earth of much of its burden. Or some, anyway. Maybe that prophecy is an agent of God’s healing of Earth. Another reading of rapture might be an inward awakening to our lost sense of stewardship. It’s something surely to celebrate on Earth Day! Best, Brendan

  2. Responsibility is the key word, since we were given a bountiful garden. We have not treated it well. I like the quote about the new earth coming, after the old one has passed away. Though it would be better if humans could set about repairing this one now.

  3. The opening lines begin so hopefully, Patti, with the ‘setting of the first golden sunset’ and a ‘perfect, pleasant place for all to live in harmony’. Things could have been so different if the human race had paid more attention to responsibility and respect.
