what a zoo

At times I am struck by the awesome creativity of our Creator. Most recently on our first visit to the zoo with Annike. There are many excellent artists in our community, but I don't believe one of them could design animals with such function and fashion in so many different forms.

fur...
feathers...
friendly...
ferocious...

These odd-looking things are the largest rodent in the world. It is hard to tell from the picture, but they are the size of large dogs. How would you like to have that living in your kitchen pantry?


God's majestic creativity, represented here in animals of all sizes each designed beautifully in their own way.  Even more amazing to me is how adaptable God's creatures were created, given the ability to physically change in order to better survive.  Each animal's unique look is part of it's beauty at the same time as being a part of its purpose and livelihood. 




We, too, were formed with such thoughtfulness and artistic flare.  Designed as individuals, set apart for a specific purpose.  We were given the amazing gift of adaptability, allowing us to survive in a turbulent, stressful, sometimes evil world.  At the same time, making that survival a great part of our beauty.

"Do you not know? Have you not heard? The LORD is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom."  Isaiah 40:28
