Building Healthy Families The earth is the Lord’s and all that is in it…,” proclaims Psalm 24. Many will celebrate Earth Day on Friday. We can celebrate, too, knowing that God has graciously given us this earth to live in and have dominion over, but that it is not ours. It is His. This week, talk with your children about ways to live and act that show respect and care for all that God has so marvelously made for our use. In so doing, honor not the creation, but the Creator.  -Lutheran Family Service
