My granddaughter, Cammie, is eight years old and she did a Science Project at her school. Last night, she was awarded a trophy for having the best project and was so happy! My son, Chad put her picture on Facebook and hundreds have responded. Many have said “Congratulations,” but a good many have said “Keep It Up,” and many have said “We Need More Young People Interested in Science.” Cammie is very happy to have won and we are very proud of her.
Have you ever thought about how complicated the world is? A rare jellyfish was found 4000 feet deep in the ocean. Its body shone with shades of blue, purple, and pink against the dark backdrop of the water. As I watched the tentacles waving of the Halitrephes maasi jellyfish on the National Geographic video, it dawned on me how complicated this world that God created really is. There are more than 2000 types of jellyfish that scientists have identified.
Our God brought forth light and life and crafted it into all that we have and that is around us today. Genesis 1:21 says he designed “the great creatures of the sea and every living thing with which the water teems.” Scientists are still discovering wondrous creatures that the Lord created in the beginning.
God intentionally sculpted each person in this world – billions of them – and intentionally gave each of us a purpose before we drew our first breath. (Psalm 139:13-16) God’s creation has surprises for us each day. May we all realize that God created the heavens and the earth and that His creation is for us to enjoy and protect. On this day after Easter, may we all celebrate God’s creativity and worship Him and thank Him for His only Son who died and rose again! May Easter 2019 be a time to celebrate His majesty!
Genesis 1:20 – “Let the water teem with living creatures.”
