Salvation ArmyCarbon Footprints......

Where have all the flowers gone?
Weedkillers taken everyone.
Where have the butterflies gone?
Insecticide killed them everyone.
Where have all the fish gone?
Deep sea trawling caught each one.
Where are the whales? The dolphins at play?
Why, margerine and zoo exhibits took them away.
Animals and birds of the air,?
We took their lives for clothes to wear.
Forests burnt, or in decline,
Habitats, gone for all of time.
No more are lakes and streams
Filled with water, crystal clear,
For effluents from factories
Are dumped, haphazardly here.
Was the serpent part of God's plan,
When it tempted Eve,
And showed her the evil heart of man.?
Murder, and drugs, the way of today,
Man killing man, pain and scars
That will never go away.
Once, long ago, this earth was fair,
'Twas man brought about the wear and tear.
It must be stopped, before it's to late;
Before man himself suffers our sad earth's fate.
This world was entrusted to our carev That its beauty all could share;
Our inheritance, this Eden,
All that we hold dear
Causes me to shed a tear,
You and I can ease the worlds pain
If on our lifes journey we would learn
How to show our love and how to feel concern.

Pollution is all about us...we all know it....

In cities across the world people are wearing face masks against the fumes from vehicle exhausts. We have dirty, trash littered streets, acid rain, global warming, polar ice caps are melting. Deserts are growing ! - vegetation isn't. We are slowly destroying the world in which we live.

God made this world, He entrusted it to our care. He said it was "Very good". Ask yourself is it so good now ?. The Bible says "The earth is defiled by its people". God says "Do not defile the land where you live" and yet we continue in our selfish ways. We pollute not only the land but ourselves as well, for however small a sin is, it damages our hearts, and because of this, the sense of turmoil that we often experience can lead to destruction. God sent Jesus to die for us that we might be cleansed and forgiven of our sins. - surely then we must all become more caring, more loving, more vigilant, for then we will be aware of our surroundings, ourselves, and the damage we do daily. Pollution - think to yourself "How can I help to effect a cure" - then act upon it.....

"If my people, which are called by My name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways; then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land."
