Because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions -- it is by grace you have been saved.
He made the moon to mark the seasons, and the sun knows when to go down. You bring darkness, it becomes night , and all the beasts of the forest prowl. The lions roar for their prey and seek their food from God. The sun rises, and they steal away, they return and lie down in their dens. How many are your works, Lord! In wisdom you made them all; the earth is full of your creatures. There is the sea, vast and spacious, teeming with creatures beyond number--living things both large and small.
~Psalm 104:19-26 NIV
