God at the Phoenix Zoo

We look at paintings, drawings, animation, films, clothes, pottery, and sometimes say in amazement how incredibly detailed the artistry is. We just can’t believe the creator took that much time and effort to put in the detailed pattern, image, even the detailed story. Yet, here we have a God who put so much detail into all His creations. He picked out all the colors on a peacock, he chose every freckle on a person, and He knows your story. THAT is amazing! We should praise Him more for that. Anyways, I went to the Phoenix Zoo yesterday and just thanked God for different things as I walked around. Pictures included 🙂

Thank you for the brilliant patterns on the skin of a snake.

Thank you for the funny confused look in the eye of a lizard. (A bearded dragon in this case).

Thank you for the way males, sometimes become an incredibly beautiful color in certain seasons.

Thank you for how lizards do push ups to show off, and how they dart back and forth so quickly it’s like magic.

Thank you for how truly friendly and cute a salamander looks.

Thank you for the high pitched cute bark the prairie dogs make.

Thank you for making the so-called “ugly” creatures so vital to our survival and world.

Thank you for the elusiveness of the wolf. That we , as humans, can not force them to be seen, but when they choose to be seen we’re in awe.(They’re so elusive, I have never gotten a picture of them from the zoo :o)

Thank you for making giraffes the watch guards of the Savannah and because of how gracefully tall they are, we can easily spot them.

Thank you for making the furry, long-eared fennec fox nocturnal so we can remember we need to rest during the day as well as at night.

Thank you for the gentle, yet powerful call of the quail and even the annoying rattling call of other birds!

Thank you for the intricately colored rainbowed face of a male mandrill.

Thank you for the look of scrappiness the baboons possess.

THANK YOU FOR THE GENTLE, WISDOM LIKE LOOK OF THE RHINOCEROS.

Thank you for the regal appearance of the big horn sheep.

Thank you for the image of complete laziness the king of Africa has.

Oh Lord, thank you for how vibrantly yellow the blossoms of a tree are.

Thank you that I can share my love for your flowers with the energetic bees.

Thank you for the lanky awkward beauty of the maned wolf.

Thank you that gum comes off of shoes….. :/

Thank you for the ability to sit on a bench under cool shade while listening to the different sounds of your creation.

Thank you that all adolescent creatures (humans included) go through an awkward unsure stage, like the grey flamingo youngings….. But You know they will grow into pink beautiful graceful one-legged birds, as will all creatures in Your eyes.

Thank you that animals are ignorant of the comments we make towards them. Yet, thank you for giving all of your creatures some kind of voice.

Thank you for the elegant barn owls perched always in the same spot.

Thank you, even, for the Madagascar Hissing Cockroaches, that they even have their own unique personalities.

Thank you for the graceful yet slinky way an alligator swims through the water.

Thank you that the slow, harmless, veggie eating tortoise is the creature that our lives them all!

Thank you for those questioning eyes of the emu.

Thank you for that goofy grin on the small Chinese Alligator’s face.

Thank you for how incredibly small a komodo dragon starts out and then becomes fiercely large.

Thank you for those puffy cheeks and emotional eyes of the orangutan.

Thank you for the baby orangutan’s hair sticking up on it’s head.

Praise God for all His creations!

Job 12:7-10

7 “But ask the animals, and they will teach you, or the birds in the sky, and they will tell you;
8 or speak to the earth, and it will teach you, or let the fish in the sea inform you.
9 Which of all these does not know that the hand of the LORD has done this?
10 In his hand is the life of every creature and the breath of all mankind.
