As I stood in my front yard today considering all the life and beauty surrounding me in the woods and fields I thought how foolish I was to have ever, so strongly, doubted my creator, However, if I had not intensely followed the sciences, the arts, and the humanities and supported and cheered those who daily, feverishly crafted alternative explanations for God’s handy work, I would not be enjoying my life to such great depth now; God uses everything for good; it’s like when a great painter uses the technique of shadowing to finish his masterpiece; it powerfully enhances his work. The painting would be a terrible failure without the shades of darkness to accentuate the joyous beauty.
