Our Earth, Our Lives: Everything we do is connected to the gifts the Earth, the Elements, and Creation provide for us. How are we doing as stewards of the planet? The Earth cares for us; what are some of the things we need to be more aware of when it comes to caring for the Earth? As the health of the planet diminishes, so will human lives. There are many things that cannot be undone. However, we may embrace the Earth more lovingly, intentionally, and as gentle caretakers moving forward.
