Ever since I was a child, I had an appreciation for nature. I collected rocks and arranged them in egg cartons. I gathered leaves and preserved them by fusing them between two sheets of waxed paper. I checked out library books about birds and studied them for hours. I even had a phase where I wanted to garden.When I was 8, my mom had obtained a book of nature for me and I loved that book and kept it till just a few years ago when I passed it on to my first grand niece.

Nature is one of God's gifts to us. May you learn to appreciate it and worship the creator!
