Description from the publisher:
Here is a tale of praise and gratitude,
To the Power of the One,
Who created the magnificent riches of the earth and the skies and then,
Like a hidden treasure wanting to be known, Created us.
And it is we alone among all creatures
Who can reflect,
And accept stewardship,
And bow down in love and awe.
A world waiting to be discovered, enjoyed and respected, but too often taken for granted.
Beautifully written, discover our relationship with the treasures of this world!
Long ago, the universe was humming praises for its Creator,
But there was no one to stand still and listen, and say “Ahhh.”
The stars were whirling and glittering in the night sky,
But there was no one to be dazzled by them and discern their patterns.
The moon was waxing and waning in its orbit,
But there was no one to measure its phases or count their days by it.
