Look no's all here.

"It is ironic how we stretch our imagination and seek extraterrestrial life forms with unique qualities in the dark vastness of space, when in essence they are amongst us in the light of day. Those mysterious life forms we call animals."  P.A. Rittler

This is a strange quote to find on a devotional blog, I know. You may be wondering what in the world it has to do with anything spiritual. Let me explain.

We took our grandchildren to the zoo the other day. Once again I saw strange and mysterious creatures, some are beyond my ability to describe. As I walked through and examined the variety of life forms, I was again struck with the awesomeness of a creative God. No human mind could ever contrive such intricate uniqueness in this world and beyond. We serve a Creator that knows how much we need to explore and seek. He has provided enough interest here to last a lifetime of discovery.

Psalm 111:4 (Amplified Bible)

"He has made His wonderful works to be remembered; the Lord is gracious, merciful, and full of loving compassion."

It was his pleasure to create this wondrous world for us. Sometimes it's best just to look in your own back yard before wandering beyond to satisfy your longing. Let us praise Him for his creative gifts.


  1. Hi Jan,

    My hubby and I just took our teen daughter to the zoo last weekend, and I have to agree with you--we saw some things I had NEVER seen before. The creativity boggled my mind! What a joy to have eyes to take it all in.

    Happy New Year to you! :)

  2. Hi Julie,
    We take it all for granted dont we? We are blessed to enjoy it.

  3. As David wrote in Psalms: "The heavens declare the glory of God;the skies proclaim the work of his hands."

    God's awesome creative force is everywhere.=)
