Shelley and I took a walk in our neighborhood Monday about sunset, and saw this dramatic scene—part of a jet contrail beneath some wispy clouds. The contrail reminded me of a quill pen made from a white feather. That, in turn, brought to mind the Bible truth that every part of the natural world speaks volumes about its Creator. It’s written not only in the sky, but in earth and sea.

The heavens declare the glory of God,
and the sky above proclaims his handiwork.
Day to day pours out speech,
and night to night reveals knowledge.
There is no speech, nor are there words,
whose voice is not heard.

Their voice goes out through all the earth,
and their words to the end of the world.
In them he has set a tent for the sun,
which comes out like a bridegroom leaving his chamber,
and, like a strong man, runs its course with joy.
Its rising is from the end of the heavens,
and its circuit to the end of them,
and there is nothing hidden from its heat.
Psalm 19:1 – 6, ESV
