You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body and knit me together in my mother’s womb. Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex!
~Psalm 139:13-14, NLT
All of life is one giant miracle that God is performing before us and in our behalf.
The human eye measures only one inch in diameter, yet it can see things that are millions of miles away. The eye can adapt quickly so as to focus on the object whether great or small. It also adapts automatically to different shades of light. It can distinguish among more than 150 different colors. It can judge depth and distance. One old man, probably my age, was carried to the eye doctor by one of his children against his will. In the discussion, the doctor asked the old man how far he could see. He said in an instant, “I can see the moon, how far is that?” The stars we see are outside our solar system and are much further away than the moon. The heart weighs less than a pound. It beats 10,000 times a day pumping 75 gallons of blood through its chambers and through our body every hour. It pumps blood through 100,000 miles of veins and vessels. It is an incredible little muscle. The brain weighs three pounds and it is a complex computer. There are 100 billion neurons in the brain. The brain enables us to think and move. Human anatomy is wonderfully complex as it the DNA molecule. Buckner, life is one big miracle. Let us stand in awe and give thanks.
Another beautiful and cool morning. I do love this weather. Today would be a good day to pray for your pastor and the worship service Sunday. Have a good day and thanks for reading the blog.
