Good morning, Father.
Thank you for the awesome adventure with MATH last night…! I truly enjoy geometry, and I see it everywhere in nature — in tree bark, in the changing of the sun’s rays, in plants and animals and rocks and feathers, in people’s faces and even in the daily changes of our lives. Thank you for giving me this additional way to enjoy your creation, and please help me to learn more and understand better, and even to incorporate geometry into my art! 😀

 
Revelations 21:10-27 ERV

The angel carried me away by the Spirit to a very large and high mountain. The angel showed me the holy city, Jerusalem. The city was coming down out of heaven from God.
The city was shining with the glory of God. It was shining bright like a very expensive jewel, like a jasper. It was clear as crystal.
The city had a large, high wall with twelve gates. There were twelve angels at the gates. On each gate was written the name of one of the twelve tribes of Israel.
There were three gates on the east, three gates on the north, three gates on the south, and three gates on the west.
The walls of the city were built on twelve foundation stones. On the stones were written the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb.
The angel who talked with me had a measuring rod made of gold. The angel had this rod to measure the city, its gates, and its wall.
The city was built in a square. Its length was equal to its width. The angel measured the city with the rod. The city was 12,000 stadia long, 12,000 stadia wide, and 12,000 stadia high.
The angel also measured the wall. It was 144 cubits high. (The angel was using the same measurement that people use.)
The wall was made of jasper. The city was made of pure gold, as pure as glass.
The foundation stones of the city walls had every kind of expensive jewels in them. The first foundation stone was jasper, the second was sapphire, the third was chalcedony, the fourth was emerald,
the fifth was onyx, the sixth was carnelian, the seventh was yellow quartz, the eighth was beryl, the ninth was topaz, the tenth was chrysoprase, the eleventh was jacinth, and the twelfth was amethyst.
The twelve gates were twelve pearls. Each gate was made from one pearl. The street of the city was made of pure gold, as clear as glass.
I did not see a temple in the city. The Lord God All-Powerful and the Lamb were the city’s temple.
The city did not need the sun or the moon to shine on it. The glory of God gave the city light. The Lamb was the city’s lamp.
The peoples of the world will walk by the light given by the Lamb. The rulers of the earth will bring their glory into the city.
The city’s gates will never close on any day, because there is no night there.
The greatness and the honor of the nations will be brought into the city.
Nothing unclean will ever enter the city. No one who does shameful things or tells lies will ever enter the city. Only those whose names are written in the Lamb’s book of life will enter the city.

 
Thank you, Lord Jesus, for preparing such a beautiful home for us! Help me to make beautiful things for YOU, while I am here on this earth, and thank you for helping me see the beauty in your design. Amen!
