I am so thankful for the beauty and richness of nature. God’s imagination has no bounds in creating beautiful and intricate and strange and amazing patterns and shapes and depth of color and texture. The vastness of creation is infinitely intriguing. To sit and ponder it all is beyond words in a blog. It is a deep and abiding blessing that brings me closer to the heart and mind of God.
Just think about how many thousands or maybe millions of types of bugs, fish, mammals, birds or invertebrates there! And each one has its own shape or pattern, voice or distinct features. To think He took the time to paint tiny dots on ladybugs backs or that some things are only seen by him — under the sea mysteries, things underground, and microscopic things.
This is only a tiny thought in the vast universe of creation and it is overwhelming. He draws my attention to his mighty creativity and still there is more I’ll never see. And of course humanity is his ultimate creation. So many details — emotional and spiritual and physiological and mental– so deeply awed.
Worship the creator, not the creation. Notice His handiwork. Be awed by his attention to detail and overwhelmed by His imagination. I almost cannot contain my internal response and it overflows into a few mildly poetic words. Be mindful. Be aware. Be thankful.
