Recently, my teen Youth Group has been studying Genesis. My absolute favorite part of Genesis is the first chapter which tells us of CREATION. An awesome God experience happened when we were studying this chapter. We were sitting outside discussing the amazing things that God created. I had mentioned birds, & at that exact moment, we were serenaded by a single bird in the huge tree that we were sitting under. I was so thankful to be able to share that moment of God's perfect timing with my group.

"God saw all that He had made, & it was very good."
Genesis 1:31a (NIV)

What an understatement!!!! I am very awed by God's creations, From the intricacies of the human body to the brilliant colors of the flowers.

I'm awed  when i look up in the sky & see the millions for twinkling stars.

And when i think, or see some of God's wonderful creations, they bring back some great memories....

I remember the first time i saw a bunny....up close & personal. I have no idea how old i was, but i was little. My dad was working in the field & Mom & i had brought dinner to him. He had caught a baby bunny. I remember how excited & fascinated at how his little nose twitched & how soft his fur was.

Also as a child i have been fascinated with turtles. When Mom & i would go to town, we would usually stop at Kresge's. (Anyone who remembers that name, does not have to admit how old they They had a small pet department that had a little make shift tank full of tiny turtles. I just loved to watch them!

And God's creations can teach us so much! Though, for the most part, they are very pest, as humans, we can learn so much from the work ethics of ants.

 But God's greatest creation isn't a thing. It's love.

I hope you have enjoyed me sharing my fascinations & memories today. Please take some time today & be thankful for ALL of god's creations. Look at each one through the eyes of amazement, for they are all miracles.

One more thing...All of today's pictures are from a group that i am lucky to be a part of. We share a lot of things....sadness, joys, accomplishments... but the greatest thing we share is love.
