I got to thinkin’ this morning about the concept of creation.  I’m no philosopher but have you ever stopped and just thought about what a miracle our universe is?

This may seem odd to some, but take the idea of laughter for instance.  Here’s this thing that we do when something strikes us as funny.  We blow air out of our mouths and make a sound while making a crescent moon shape with our mouths.  Laughter makes us feel good all over.  It’s something I do all the time, but it’s a strange phenomenon when I really think about it.  Someone says or does something and I immediately react to that action or word by creating a quirky sound.  And everyone in the world makes the same sound with a different tone.  And what makes one person make the sound is totally different than what makes another person make that same sound.  But there are people out there that make the sound at the same time as you.  And you like to mingle with them because they "get your humor".  God created that.

Or how about the reality that a small little brown or green crusty seed grows into a beautiful tree if you just place it in dirt?  Here is this thing that no scientist in the whole universe could ever have the power to create.  A small little ball of nothing and if you wait long enough, it sprouts up all by itself into this colorful masterpiece that’s attached to the earth. 

And while not the most comfortable concept to discuss; what about sex?  God gave us these bodies that when you put them together with another human being (which just so happens to fit perfectly together with your body) it feels so incredible.  And we do it secretly and don't talk about it much.  But it's so awesome.... God did that.

Childbirth.  Do the above and a person grows in your stomach.  And most likely you will immediately and automatically love that person so much that you’d die for them and you never even knew them before.  Seriously?  That’s our God.

Or sleep.  Every single solitary day, our bodies start to have this strange reaction in them that makes us less able to function.  Everyone across the universe has the same reaction and it makes them want to conceal their eyeballs with the thin skin that covers them.  And if they choose to maneuver their bodies into a horizontal position and wait it out for approximately 8 hours, they’ll be able to reveal their eyeballs once again and function at their full capacity again.

The fact that we walk around day after day and don’t fall over is even something to sing about.  Our round earth hangs on absolutely nothing. It's just suspended in air. 

How wonderful is our creator that He designed the universe this way?

Job 12:7‑10

  But ask the animals, and they will teach you, or the birds of the air, and they will tell you; or speak to the earth, and it will teach you, or let the fish of the sea inform you. Which of all these does not know that the hand of the LORD has done this? In his hand is the life of every creature and the breath of all mankind.

    Jess, honey.  I think that you are old enough (and married!!) that we should have a little talk about the fact that babies don’t REALLY grow in your stomach.  If you want to talk, call me.

    I fell asleep last night thinking about during the flood the entire earth was covered with water.  I tried to picture the earth from space completely covered with water and seeing that none of it fell off! This universe is nothing but amazing, just like our God.  I had lost track of you for many months and started reading your blogs again tonight.  I am really happy to read about your growth and all the things you have learned this year.  Of course that’s because I agree with everything i’ve read thus far! We just moved to Patterson in August and have missed many sabbaths there; i’ve been sleeping many Saturday mornings and uh, afternoons. Anyway, I recently realized that I had not seen you for a while in our sabbath school class, so I went to your blog to see what’s going on! Miss you, but love to hear what you’re finding out about your faith.
    From one who adopted three children at age 44, congratulations on your pregnancy!! That sex is good stuff!
