If a finger's pointing to the sky..

"If a finger's pointing to the sky, only a fool would look at the finger." - Amelie

I was looking at a buttercup yesterday and was amazed at the beauty of it. It's petals looked like they'd been coated in deep flourescent paint and then been dipped in the sun to gain a golden glow. It's truely a work of art. Once again i am perplexed at how someone can believe in evolution. I was also admiring a daisy while waiting for my bus... it's just a little flower which isn't even highly rated, yet there is such perfection in it's little petals and i wonder at why we should be blessed with so many hundreds of these to brighten up the fields and roadside grass?

It's like they're all there to point to God; their creator. They all seem to shout out in their glory, "look at me and my beauty, but i'm just a glimpse of Him who made me, now look at Him and join with me and sing to Him". When people look at a piece of traditional "artwork" they may well marvel at it, but it is always the artist who is really given the credit, it's always the artist who would receive the prize in a competition, not the piece of art. It makes me wonder sometimes, and feel sad at, how easily people forget to thank God for all he's made and instead worship the creature rather than the creator.

"God is strong enough to exult in monotony. It is possible that God says every morning, 'Do it again' to the sun; and every evening, 'Do it again' to the moon. It may not be automatic necessity that makes all daisies alike; it may be that God makes every daisy seperately, but has never got tired of making them! It may be that He has the eternal appetite of infancy; for we have sinned and grown old, and our Father is younger than we." - G. K. Chesterton
