I Marvel At Thy Marvels

More than night sky stars,
And tiny specks of sand

That litters the beach,
Are the marvels of Thy hand;

For the numbers are
Out of our mind’s reach!

Galaxies that swirl in space,
Intricate design, scale magnificent.

Delicate pattern of flowers;
Royalty isn’t dressed as opulent

As the bloom’s exquisite face;
I marvel, Lord, at Thy creative powers!

Whether it be large or small,
I marvel at Thy marvels;

The creation of the universe,
Or the creation of a cell,

Thy cosmos and all,
Therein of Thy glory, tell!

John 5:19&20: Then answered Jesus and said unto them, “Verily, verily, I say unto you, The Son can do nothing of Himself, but what He seeth the Father do: for what things soever He doeth, these also doeth the Son likewise. For the Father loveth the Son, and sheweth Him all things that Himself doeth: and He will shew Him greater works than these, that ye may marvel…”

**You may have noticed that the second photo of the moon is obviously more than my 3X zoom camera can do. My parents saw that my old camera had about reached its end (seriously, the rubber band and Coke Cola cap that was screwed into the bottom was not keeping it alive anymore and it required twisting the camera and pushing on different parts a certain way to make it work at all), and so instead of waiting until my birthday in October, they put in $200 to go with the money I was saving and we picked out a Cannon PowerShot that has a 50X zoom. I think I have fallen in love, haha! 😊 I plan to post soon comparing the two cameras; taking the same shot with both to see how much better the new one is! I sort of did that in this post too; the first photo was the best my old camera could do with the moon. A white glowing blob. 😂 What a difference!!!

    • Thank you! 😊 ❤

      It is! 😁 Hard to believe, but the only photo in this post that was taken by the new camera is the one of the moon. The others are the old camera. I can’t wait to start sharing photos taken by the new one! 😀

      Yes! I really want to try taking photos of birds. They always got too scared when I tried with my old camera. 🙂

  1. We are made in the image of God. For relationship with God. God made all of creation to glorify Himself. Your images of God’s creation help us all to worship through your God given gifts. Thank you Grace.

  2. Oh mai GOODNESS, Grace!!! The last picture you took with your new camera turned out AMAZING! ❤ so glad you're liking the new cam! I would love to get one of my own one day, but for now I just use my iPhone. haha

    • Thank you! 😊 ❤ I was so shocked how it turned out! I’m finally getting the hang of macro with it too. It’s weird that it will focus on things all the way up to the lens; my old one had to be about 5 inches away.

      The photos you’ve been posting were taken with an iPhone?! That’s really cool; I didn’t expect an iPhone to take such great photos! 😀
