The other day, Bette Cox left a comment on one of my photos that was truly inspirational, even though it might seem odd at first. Her observation was about God’s incredible attention to detail, and she brought up as an example the complexity of leaves; of edges of leaves. I’m sure most all of us have noticed leaves, their shades of color, their shapes, and interior structure being seen as light passes through… but the edge of a leaf?
I have to admit that until Bette mentioned leaf edges; I really hadn’t ever paid them much attention.
Yet as I thought about it, I realized that if the Designer hadn’t gotten the edges just right, leaves wouldn’t work at all; they’d just dry up and drop off before they could even be fully formed, and then… the animal kingdom, including you and me, couldn’t exist.
If you allow your mind to wander through the creation, just the little things, not the usual big ones… the magnitude of the craftsmanship of the Creator, His attention to tiny, sometimes even invisible details is beyond comprehension; how can we not just sit back in almost a childish state of wonder?
I don’t know about you, but when I ponder such things, my head usually turns to mush; and that is when it usually hits me (yet again) that there is something even more amazing that all of that: The very same God who created the universe in all of its infinite vastness, as well in its finite smallness, with attention to every tiny, minute detail, knows my name, and wants relationship with me, and of course, the same goes for you as well.
How can that be?
Isn’t that just the most amazing thing of all?
