God loves the earth…..
He created it, He died for it, and
He is coming back to re-create it!
Yes, we need to love it, and be good stewards of it, because He loves it.
“You care for the land and water it; you enrich it abundantly. The streams of God are filled with water to provide the people with grain, for so you have ordained it. You drench its furrows and level its ridges; you soften it with showers and bless its crops. You crown the year with your bounty, and your carts overflow with abundance. The grasslands of the desert overflow; the hills are clothed with gladness. The meadows are covered with flocks and the valleys are mantled with grain; they shout for joy and sing.” (Psalm 65:9-13)
We will not destroy it, we don’t have the power! How can He create a new earth if we have already destroyed the old one? The Earth still belongs to Him, it is only on loan to us.
The earth is the Lord’s and the fullness thereof, the world and those who dwell therein, for he has founded it upon the seas and established it upon the rivers. Who shall ascend the hill of the Lord? And who shall stand in his holy place? Psalm 24:1-3
The earth is not over-crowded, we just have too many in certain areas. We are not running out of open land, just come to Arizona, or Montana, Utah, or the California desert for that matter, and see for yourself!
“He is before all things, and in him all things hold together.” (Colossians 1:17)
Jesus is at the center stage of everything, including our earth! So to me, every day is earth day because every day belongs to Him!

I love your thoughts on this topic Lori. The earth is the Lord's and everything in it!
I simply believe we need to be good stewards of all we've been blessed by while we're here. But this isn't our permanent home; we're just passing through. I can't wait until we get to spend eternity in heaven with Jesus.
I will keep you in the loop about any upcoming events in AZ.
Debbie, it is so easy especially watching the news to think that all is lost! So many heartbreaking things happening, but we know who is truly in control. I always think of that song my family used to sing when we got together…”This world is not my home, I'm just a passin through, if Heaven's not my home, then Lord what will I do….”
