A Grand Design

Tree of Life in Chinese mythology
rationalfaiths.com\TreeofLife

In the breathtaking design of the universe,
God's hand can be seen:
in the intricacies of the tiniest cell,
in how the pattern of the placenta,
womb and portal,
  echoes the trunk and root systems
of the Tree of Life,
in the way the planets and stars 
align in the sky,
moon and sun traveling in tandem,
to provide us with warmth and light
and seasons.

It is impossible to look at the intricate design
of a flower, the amazing colours of
the creatures of the sea,
to see the design in everything,
how everything is linked,
and not see the Hand of God
in every blessed thing.

for Susan's prompt at Midweek Motif: Design

  1. Again you focus our inner and outer eye, our microscopes and binoculars. I would have to quote this all back to you to show what I love. And the illustration makes the total design unmistakable. Thank you!
