A Taste of New Earth

Here in Australia there are flowers and shrubs unseen in Mother England. My sisters laugh that I take my camera to what they consider to be weeds and common shrubbery. I am impressed by birds they consider nuisances, such as the Ibis, and common such as the King Parrot and the Lorikeet. Perhaps it’s like someone visiting Britain and earnestly photographing starlings and sparrows.


Two thoughts occur to me. Number one, the Creator’s wonderful imagination, making diverse birds and flowers bursting with colour. Number two, the amazing wonder of the new earth when the Maker restores our habitat, making all things new. If New Holland impresses me, how much more the new earth. 


And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away. Rev. 21:1
