Holy Amazing

You may have heard the phrase, "God is in the details." 
Look for a moment at the details of this Alaskan flower:


Ever since the creation of the world, His eternal power and divine nature, invisible though they are, have been understood and seen through the things He has made. So [we] are without excuse." (Romans 1:20)

God's work is amazing.  His attention to detail even more so.  We can look on this multi-petaled flower and see the miraculous design.  But, then we can grab a microscope and see the design within each plant cell, even each atom.  God did not cut any corners.

On our vacation to Alaska, we were flabbergasted by the quantity of huge, beautiful flowers.  Their colors were vibrant and varied.  Each one calls out to its own pollenators and each one breathes out its own pleasant aroma.  

Without the plants, we would not have enough oxygen in the air.   Flowers are necessary to the plant's life and therefore necessary to ours.  But, did God have to make them so intricate, so beautiful?  He did, because that is part of His character.
