"What can be more foolish than to think that all this rare fabric of our world could ever have come about by chance collision? There is a purpose in the earth that only heaven sees; there a poetry in existence which only peace can ever know, a spiritual presence that only the soul can sense. There is a reason for ever man and woman; to love one's neighbour as oneself.
I know that many people find it hard to believe in God, and no doubt think it foolish for others to place their faith in a supreme being that is never seen, but He is said by believers to be present in all places. What I believe is this; if you are a true believer of life, you will live, and if you are a true lover of mankind, you will love. What I know is when we lose ourselves in nature we find peace and when we lose ourselves in prayer, we find God; lose yourself in both however, and you will find both purpose and self!
Science tells us that the Earth is 4.5 billion years old, whereas the bible will indicate 6,000 years only. Science claims that all life began with a big bang whereas followers of Genesis believe that God made the heavens and earth in six days. As time itself is 'infinite' by its very nature and is defined by the interpretation of mankind, there is nothing which makes either claim incompatible with the truth.
I believe that in the beginning God made the heavens and earth. He placed animals on the earth, fish in the seas, birds in the skies and then filled it with all manner of plant life and vegetation. When He had done all this, He then made mankind; His most wonderful creation of all. When all this was created, He placed the world on an axis of love and set it spinning in perfect motion.
You are the perfect embodiment of God's love; and it is you who keeps life turning. The Lord made the earth, He placed it on an axis of love and set it spinning, but it is only through the love of one person expressed towards another that keeps it turning! Never doubt that Love truly makes the world go around.
The next time you tread upon a blade of grass, know that it required as much creative effort to make that as it did a galaxy of stars. So avoid stepping on the belief of others. Do not become a crusher of dreams in an often cold and cruel world of stark reality or a belief breaker, especially where love is increasingly lacking and the axis of humanity has slowed down and is in danger of halting."
