A few weeks prior, I came upon a dead bunny (whose picture I will not post) while walking in another forest preserve.
Nature is contrasted by both the beautiful and cruel.
God created a perfect garden and two perfect people. (Genesis 3)
Free will eventually changed that, but the beauty of God's creation will never be completely obliterated.
I am reminded that life will get better than this, that there will be a new heaven and earth to come with no sin in it.
May God bless you.
