Botanical Gardens – Jared from Messiah

The wind rustled the verdant leaves of the stately Baltic Birch that stood along the bank of the river. The ripples of the lazily flowing river spread and broke the reflection of the sky that had been resting serenely on the surface. The smell of ripe apples floated from the trees wilting under the weight of plump green fruit. A sunflower stood alone overlooking the scene in silence as the clouds passed in front of the sun.

Is it hard to believe that this description is of Klaipeda? In a city, who would imagine that such natural beauty could be found?  The Botanical Gardens are a 30 to 45 minute walk from LCC’s campus and provide a wonderful and inspiring atmosphere in which to study, enjoy God’s creation and to take time in God’s word. Thank you Lord for your creation! What a wonderful and mighty God we serve. Psalm 19:1-3 says, “The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork. Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge. There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard.” Please as you read this don’t just stop at verse three open your bible and read more!
