Truth be told, in a perfect world, every day would be earth day. Our connection to earth is so much more profound than I suspect, many would assume but once you start to make yourself aware of what an integral part each species, plant and human play in the cycle of life, it is hard to turn a blind eye. It is my desire to raise my children with this same awareness: to look at a tree and see it not only as a climbing apparatus but God's creation. Currently, I am reading a book called Planted: A story of Creation, Calling and Community and it is completely inspiring. Leah Kostamo draws you in with humour, humility and honesty as she tells the story of A Rocha's beginnings in Canada. To celebrate Earth Day, this wonderful book is on sale. It is available in both print and kindle edition.
