present at creation

Lewis tells us that since God's act of creation is outside of time and space, we are present to it because it's in eternity. He tells us this today in A Year with C.S. Lewis.

But there is another reason why we are present at His act of creation. Robert Barron tells us that God never stops creating. It is part of His nature... an intrinsic part of His character... to create. That's why His mercies are new every morning. That's why every little baby is a wondrous work of art. That's why evening after evening, the sunset will take your breath away. Because He never stops creating.

Is it any wonder, then, that our lives are full of wonderful mysteries? That we continue, even today, to find new species of animals and plants on this planet we inhabit? God never tires of making new things. And He never tires of redeeming the old ones, either.

Which is a good thing, because I usually need it.

Thank You, God, for Your eternal acts of creation.
