My husband and I love scuba diving. We got our certification over six years ago and spent days exploring the reefs off Jamaica. So, of course, when our travels took us to Cairns in Australia we decided to dive the Great Barrier Reef. In one day we did two dives and after we emptied our air tanks spent the rest of our time snorkeling.
I looked at the beautiful colors, the glorious creatures great and small, and thought to myself, "God is an artist." So many exquisite colors, textures, light, movement, and shadows collided together in a great dance of life. The place is filled with great joy, a brilliant celebration of beauty. What majesty is seen there! And suddenly I didn't even care how He did it. All the theories of big bangs and evolution became meaningless because what I saw simply miraculous. It was like gazing upon an amazing work of art, knowing that what you saw was purely beautiful and I felt like I could see His brush strokes in the glorious colors, see His hands in the awesome textures, see His grace in each precious life.
I thanked Him, my eyes moist with the feeling of awe filling my chest. I thanked Him for leaving behind His signature on the Earth. We see His work everywhere and especially in undefiled nature. The Great Barrier Reef was completely incredible.
