Many people enjoy life in the city. I prefer a more rural setting. I consider myself blessed to sit in my writer’s room, stare out the window, reveling in God’s creation. It’s amazing how much joy something as simple as a tree can bring, especially when we find ourselves taking them for granted.
Have you ever paid attention to the seemly millions of tiny insects that abound during the summer months? Imagine the creation of the tiny digestive tracts and nervous systems necessary for the survival of each of these tiny creatures. It takes very little thought to bring this concept to beyond mind-boggling.
Of course, you see this time and time again throughout the world we live. So, the next time you step outside and raise a hand (which we will all inevitably do) to swat that biting insect, briefly remember the miracle of creation before you smash the little blood sucker to smithereens.
