All Creatures Great and Small

I am constantly amazed by God's creations! I am an artist and I know that I have a vivid imagination, but I can't even begin to imagine how He came up with all of the different creatures on our earth.

Not only are they Great and Small, they come in so many shapes, sizes, colors, textures and designs.

Just imagine how much fun it would be to create a bird, a cat or a butterfly. In addition to creating each creature to be unique; he created the process for how each one will come to be, how they will behave, live, grow and die.
Each creature an integral part of the next. Each creature living, breathing, dying and giving birth to new life.

I can only imagine painting black and white stripes on a horse to create a Zebra, deciding that a caterpillar in its early somewhat dull colorless form will metamorphosis into a beautiful, fragile and dazzling Butterfly. What about the creatures that blend in to their environment and we barely notice they are there?

Just in case you weren't quite sure... the photos above were taken at the Aquarium in New Orleans and are in order... the foot and eye of an albino crocodile, the face of a stingray sucking on the side of the tank, the body of the albino croc., and down below, a very colorful jellyfish!
God truly is amazing in all of His glory, wonder and creativity! I am grateful that He has given us all so much to be thankful for.

And we too are all part of
His creation-Great and Small!
