"In the beginning God created ..."
"... the heavens and the earth,
and all the host of them, were finished.
And on the seventh day God ended his work,"
Only humans view all of nature with awe. We look up, we look around, we look down and we wonder - at the uniqueness and spectacular complexity of our own selves.
The overarching wonder is that only human beings possess consciousness! Saints know that it's all the work of God.
The greatest wonder for ourselves is procreation, producing a baby. It's the ultimate human expression. Parents are astounded by the miracle their love has brought about.
Believing parents know it as being more God's work than theirs.
David expressed it in his psalm:
"For you formed my inward parts; you covered me in my mother’s womb.
I will praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; marvelous are your works, and that my soul knows very well.
My frame was not hidden from you, when I was made in secret, and skillfully wrought in the lowest parts of the earth.
Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed. and in your book they all were written, the days fashioned for me," Psalm 139'13-16.
Without doubt living things declare the miraculous nature of their being.
So reader, just think about your own self. An immense multiplicity of highly complex systems working together performing their functions, making you human. Just miraculous!
