Marla received this picture from a Cedarville University student that did his student teaching in Australia (and spent two weeks in New Zealand). He took this picture of the beach in the Lord of the Rings movies.
Whenever we watch movies shot in amazing scenes of nature we always think they look so amazing, but for some reason I know I don’t stop to even think that what God created allows the movie to even take place in such a location. It’s so easy to just go through each day not realizing that your life story is taking place in God’s creation. You are his movie. Your ending, whether it’s adventure, drama or whatever it may be, will be scripted according to His plan.
