Sunday's GIft to you

God's Accuracy

 Fascinating,  I've never given most of this a thought!!!!

 God's  accuracy may be observed in the hatching of eggs.

 For example:
 -the eggs of the potato bug hatch in 7 days;
 -those of the canary in 14 days;

 -those of the barnyard hen in 21 days;

 -The eggs of ducks and geese hatch in 28 days;

 -those of the mallard in 35 days;

 -The eggs  of the parrot and the ostrich hatch in 42 days.

 (Notice, they are all divisible by  seven, the number of days in a week!)

God's  wisdom is seen in the making of an elephant... The four legs of this great beast  all bend forward in the same direction.. No  other quadruped is so made. God planned that this  animal would have a huge body, too large to live on two legs... For this reason He gave it  four fulcrums so that it can rise from the  ground easily.

 The horse rises from the ground on its two front legs first.

 A cow rises from the ground with its  two hind legs first.

 How wise the Lord is in all His works of creation!

 God's wisdom is revealed in His arrangement of sections and segments, as
 well as in the number of grains.

-Each watermelon has an even number of stripes on the  rind.

 -Each orange has an even number of segments.

 -Each ear of corn has an even  number of rows.

 -Each  stalk of wheat has an even number of grains.

 -Every bunch of bananas has on its  lowest row an even number of bananas,
 and each row decreases by one, so that one row has an even number and
 the next row an odd  number.

 -The waves of the sea roll in on shore twenty-six to the  minute in all
 kinds of weather.

 All grains are found in even numbers on the stalks, and the Lord
 specified thirty fold, sixty fold, and a hundred fold - all even numbers.

 God has caused the flowers to blossom at certain specified times during
 the day, so that Linnaeus, the great botanist, once said that if he had
 a conservatory containing the right kind of soil, moisture and
 temperature,  he could tell the time of day or night by the flowers that
 were open and those that were closed!

 The lives of each of you may be ordered by the Lord in a beautiful way
 for His glory, if you will only entrust Him with your life. If you try
 to  regulate your own life, it will only be a mess and a failure..

 Only the One Who made the brain and the heart can successfully guide
 them to a profitable end. 



Love, Chatty Crone

I love our Creator. He is so Perfect!Thanks for sharing the tidbits because I greatly adore His creation. Almost as much as Him. But just ALMOST because it reflects Him...but is NOT Him. Happy Sunday!

Stacy said...

It always amazes me how people can believe this world just randomly happened when faced with facts like these. Thanks for sharing them...I didn't know some of them.

Jill said...

Absolutely amazing facts. HE is so good!

Sandra said...

first let me say if my wall looks like that i will NOT cross it. LOL
i love all the info, and i went outside before i commented and counted our bananas.
8 on the first row, 7 on the second. of course we only have 2 rows but that proves the banana thing. this info is truly amazing.

I'm mostly known as 'MA' said...

God's accuracy is absolutely awesome! I loved reading all those facts. Who could ever doubt that ? It's a wonderful quiet Sunday morning here. Everyone appears to still be sleeping. We got to enjoy some fireworks here as we sat around a campfire last evening. No I don't own a campground, we all rent the sites we park our campers on. It's a big place with about 350 sites in it. A fishing lake, a pool and a playground for the kids are shared by all. Today should be a pretty day but again hot. I'm thanking God today for being able to enjoy it all. Hope your Sunday is a wonderful one!

Beth said...

The facts are very fascinating!

Miss Debbie said...

Nothing is left to chance with our God! He has a purpose for everything He does. Ans yes, He does order our lives...I take great comfort in that truth! Thanks for sharing...very encouraging! :-)

Susan said...

Wow,Sandie. Talk about order in the universe. Ooooo weeeee. If we could just LET Him be in charge of our lives, we'd be so much better off. Thanks for sharing and have a wonderful Sunday. Susan

Amazing facts. Thanks for sharing that.

jack69 said...

Yeah, it is very hard to believe in so many 'CO INCIDENTS' for me. Seems everything is planned!
Amazing how beautifully it is planned also.
Life is good, so good that we all want to live.

Tammy@Simple Southern Happiness said...

God is awesome in everyway and I keep saying it, "pays close attention to the details".

Please keep cool, another hot week.


Fascinating. There is order to the world.

That corgi :) said...

Loved reading this, Sandie!! God is truly amazing; each detail in everything he made was perfect and well thought out!!!

hope it is a cooler day for you guys!


Mevely317 said...

I suspect I crave "order" more than others (maybe not?) ... nevertheless, this is so comforting!

This big old crazy/wonderful world was NOT randomly created out of some cosmic chaos. God is GOOD :)

Linda @ A La Carte said...

I did find this amazing and wondrous! Thank you for this great post! Happy Sunday! Hugs, Linda

mare ball said...

This is very cool! What an organized, methodical God we have! Love it! You must have done a LOT of research to find all this. :-)

Shug said...

I've been sitting here reading all this good stuff to my daughter and hubby.....Who would have ever thought a banana bunch would have even and odd rows.

Ann said...

That is fascinating and you know that I am now going to have to count rows of corn on the ear and other such stuff :)

Shelly said...

How totally cool this is- I'm sharing it with all the math teachers in my life~

BelovedBomber said...

What an awesome example of our Creator! I love the bridge too! Many blessings!

Retired English Teacher said...

This was a fascinating read. We can trust that our God has everything under control.

A Quiet Corner said...

Sandie, I am am impressed with all this knowledge!....:)JP

Rob-bear said...

Interesting stuff, Sandie! You were really egging us on at the start.

So from Canada, Happy Canada Day, eh?

You celebrate Independence Day in three days. Good wishes in advance!

I think we missed the War of 1812, but we've made up over that "misunderstanding."

Paula said...

I have never noticed how a cow gets up a certain way but I do know they don't have teeth in top in the front. Humm I wonder why that is.

Walking on Sunshine... said...

This was especially beautiful this week Sandie! Thanks!

Blondee said...

What a neat little bit of trivia about the eggs!!

Catherine said...

Dear Sandie, You never cease to amaze. This was fascinating and thoughtful. Blessings dear. Catherine xo

Susan J. Reinhardt said...

My pastor would love these facts!

Happy brand new week!

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Hi Sandie, Love the Thought for the Day.... awesome!!!!

And I had not ever thought about all of those facts you gave... Neat about the eggs especially, and the even number rows of corn, etc...

Thanks for sharing.

Tree Hugger - Suzan said...

Love your swan picture that your friend took!
Interesting facts about the time it takes to hatch different eggs!
God IS Good!

SquirrelQueen said...

Truly fascinating facts Sandie.
I really like your Thought for the Day, I'll take the bridge.


Oh my goodness, but this was so good a read. I never realized half this stuff. The watermelon stripes and the way a banana bunch grows on a word, incredible info.

Debbie said...

This wasn't just fascinating, Sandie, it was literally one of those heart thumping kinds of things to read. What an amazing Creator we have. Just plain AMAZING.

Nothing is random. Nothing at all.

Arkansas Patti said...

Very interesting facts that scream order and deny random.
I try to be a bridge builder and not a wall builder but sometimes we forget the big picture. Good reminder, thanks.

Kathy ... aka Nana said...

What interesting info. So hard to understand how people can deny His existence when they see the order and beauty of His creation.

SweetMarie said...

I LOVE this post! Nothing surprises me. :) I"m building a bridge! :)
I've missed you!

Debby@Just Breathe said...

Yes it is very fascinating!!!
My God is an awesome God.
Hugs, Debby
