Imagine if our world were just shades of black and white. The sky a shade of white, the grass a shade of black. Every flower, every butterfly, every bird a combination of black and white. While we would still marvel at the intricate designs of these flowers and animals, the colors strike us first. Intense reds, vibrant yellows, and deep blues catch our eye and draw us in for a closer look.

God brushed the canvas of His creation in colorful strokes that could only have come from His hand. While some colors serve some practical purposes, such as camouflage or attracting a mate, many hues simply magnify our Creator God, who loves beauty and detail. May we who view His works praise Him, for He has done great things and no one is like Him (Psalm 71:19).

Look into the night sky, and you’re transported to other worlds—galaxies of them. Andromeda galaxy, our nearest neighbor in the universe, can be seen from Earth even without a telescope. The immensity of our universe should make any stargazer feel miniscule. Our universe is vast and nearly immeasurable. And yet the God who made all the galaxies, every star, every planet, calls His children by name. He knew us in the womb, knows the number of hairs on our heads, and sent His Son Jesus to die on the Cross for us (Matthew 10:30; Psalm 139:13–16; 1 John 4:10).
Don’t Mess with Me (photo by Hannah Way)
Clothed in shaggy fur coats, these lumbering giants are surprisingly excellent swimmers. They can dive to depths of 20 feet to look for food on a lake’s bottom, and they can swim continuously down a river for 10 miles. God designed mooses' hairs hollow, helping them stay afloat. Don’t be fooled by appearances; God’s design for this creature allows the moose to thrive in its forest home.
