American Lotus "Nelumbo Lutea"

These Lotus plants are an elegant witness to the glory of God.

They are so well designed and they move throught very distinct stages during their growth.

They bare witness to the order of the universe and the very logical processes that define the existence of life itself.

They give me a sense of peace by reminding me that for everything God created he has a productive plan.

Things do not spontaneously begin and end without a source. Every thing comes from something the only mystery is the origin of God and I believe that He knows more than this child of His and that is good enough for me.

A child has the greatest capacity to enjoy God’s creation because they do not presume to complicate it and are instead content to simply enjoy it as a gift from the father.

19Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.
20For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:
21Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.
Romans 1:19-21
