Woven Together in the Depths of the Earth
I will thank You because I am marvelously made;
Your works are wonderful, and I know it well.
My frame was not hidden from You,
when I was being made in secret,
intricately woven in the depths of the earth.
Have you ever thought about how closely related to the Earth you are? Human bodies are made of Earth-Stuff. Oxygen, carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen, potassium, sulfur, sodium, chlorine, calcium, magnesium, and other elements make up not only our bodies, but the whole biosphere; the physical system the supports life on the surface of our planet.
Plants, oceans, animals, clouds, insects, waterfalls, beaches, snowflakes, trees, humans; we all part of the biogeochemical cycles in which essential elements of living matter are circulated and recycled through organic and inorganic systems.
Can you imagine anything more creative and beautiful?
