"The pure of heart see all things full of God. They see him in the firmament of heaven, in the moon walking in brightness, in the sun when he rejoiceth as a giant to run his course. They see him 'making the clouds his chariots, and walking upon the wings of the wind.' They see him 'preparing rain for the earth,' 'and blessing the increase of it.'" --John Wesley

"Ask the animals, and they will teach you, or the birds of the air, and they will tell you; speak to the earth, and it will teach you, or let the fish of the sea inform you. Which of these does not know that the hand of the Lord has done this? In God's hand is the life of every creature and the breath of all humankind." --Job 12:7-10
