Attitude of Gratitude-Always Have a Thankful Heart Day 3

I am thankful for:
  • Airplanes and the air show. The air show started on Friday evening. Yesterday, daddy took Sarah and I to look for a place where we could watch it. We found a place right next to the airport where quite a few people were gathered. It was almost right next to the runway, and we had a better view of the airplanes. Here are some pictures:

A man climbed up on the wing of the plane when it was flying, and somehow strapped himself on it so he couldn't fall off. The plane was flying upside down and sideways! That must've been a little scary!
This jet was going super fast! When it flew above our heads, it was extremely loud, but I had a fun time! 
  • The different animals God has made.                                                                                          
  •  Creation Moments :) I know, I haven't posted one of these in a long time!                                                                                                                                                                                                          
Today's Creation Moment: Delicate, Precise Designs.                                                                         
Genesis 6:28 "And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin:"                                                                                                           
When a flower lives in harmony with and is dependent upon, say, an insect for fertilization, this is known as symbiosis. Creation Moments programs have given many examples of this, and each one defies the notion that these relationships could have developed by chance over very long times. We have another example today. 
Common chicoryChicory spaces out the opening of its flowers through the summer on a precisely timed schedule that is in perfect harmony with its pollinators. Early in the season, chicory flowers nearest the bottom of the flower stalk open first and, as they are pollinated, they close, and the next flower up the stem opens and so on. There is a remarkable efficiency to this, but there is more: The flowers usually open only in the cool morning hours, not only to protect the delicate flower from the heat of the sun but also because this is the time the pollinating insects are about. Other flowering plants open their flowers only at night and tend to have white flowers so that they are easily seen in the dark. These are the flowers that are pollinated by night-flying moths.
Such coordinated inter-relationships between the plant and the animal kingdoms could not have developed through accidental situations. They provide more evidence that the wise Creator designed these and all creatures within their relationships from the very beginning!

  1. The airplane show looks like it would have been fantastic to watch! I'm hoping I find one to go to one of these days! We used to have chicory in our ditch!


Hello there!
I'd love it if you left me a comment...they totally make my day!
