Joseph: I think it's saying that our ability to enjoy, find pleasure in, the beauty of creation offers proof of our eternal soul. The creation, from sunsets to awesome mountains to a field of wildflowers, offers beings made in the image of God, and made to live forever, glimpses of eternity--glimpses of heaven. And when you think about it, all of creation is "evangelistic." Check out Psalm 19:1: "The heavens proclaim the glory of God. The skies display his craftsmanship." When eternal beings open their eyes--really open there eyes--they can't help but see that this Earth of ours points way beyond the material world and all the way "up" to the everlasting heavenly Father. Sorry, I got a little carried away. But I get kind of excited about these sorts of discussions!
