All things testify of Him

  The other day we had the opportunity to witness a breathtaking vista from the hill east of Petaluma.  As the sun slowly succumbed to night, we were absolutely awed by the beauty and majesty of the view.  We had to stop the car for a second, and enjoy the fleeting moment in the cool night air.
  I absolutely believe few things bring us closer to God than nature. A warm summer breeze through the trees, cool clear creek water trickling over your feet, even the swirling dust of a dirt road on a sunny day, all these invigorate the soul and seem to remind us that there is a Creator of this marvelous Creation.
 Before the sun completely disappeared and we resumed our journey, I remembered the words of Alma the Younger to Korihor:
 "...All things denote there is a God; yea, even the earth, and all things that are upon the face of it, yea, and its motion, yea, and also all the planets which move in their regular form do witness that there is a Supreme Creator."
