Psalm 8:1,9 Paraphrased — (His name is EXCELLENT in all the earth; His GLORY is above the heavens…; Give PRAISE! (magnify His excellent WORKMANSHIP!)
Psalm 8:1-4 Lord, your name is so great and powerful! People everywhere see your SPLENDOR. Your GLORIOUS MAJESTY streams from the heavens…Look at the splendor of your skies, your creative genius glowing in the heavens. When I gaze at your moon and your stars, mounted like jewels in their settings, I know you are the fascinating artist who fashioned it ALL! But when I look up and see such wonder and workmanship above, I have to ask you this question: 4 Compared to all this COSMIC GLORY, why would you bother with puny, mortal man…? (TPT)

god’s wonderful creation
We have a wall hanging in our house that colorfully shows the English alphabet, as well as the numbers 1-9 taken from pictures of butterfly wings! TOTALLY AMAZING!!
See samples of so many, many varieties, shapes, and colors, below. Look at the bottom left, with rainbow colors!
life-cycle of butterflies
Interesting physical characteristics & features of the Monarch Butterfly
It weighs no more than a down feather. They fly an average of 10-25 miles an hour during their migratory flights. It can “outrun” a horse. The fastest horses usually run 30 miles per hour. However, the monarch may fly 80 miles in one day, while horses seldom race more than 1 mile in a week. In an endurance test, the butterfly would clearly be the winner. They have been observed to fly over 650 miles without landing.
The caterpillar sheds its skin 5 times (as often as every 3 days) during its life-cycle because it is growing so fast that their skin cannot keep up. About 80% of the food the caterpillar eats is converted to fat & stored in a large abdominal organ called the fat body. This makes up almost of a migrating monarchs’ total dry weight. It must last the adult butterfly a period of many months during migration and winter dormancy.
The metamorphosis that changes a caterpillar to a butterfly is not merely a rearrangement of parts but A COMPLETE TRANSFORMATION. Internal organs of the caterpillar liquefy and are recycled into NEW TISSUE. Jaws disappear and a specialized tongue appears. Old stubby legs are absorbed and new wings develop. What an amazing creative MIRACLE!
When a caterpillar matures, it stops eating and seeks out a sheltered spot where it can hang upside down for 2-3 weeks. (Pupa stage) It weaves a silk mat on the underside of a twig and attaches itself firmly with a cluster of hooks called a cremaster. Then, while holding onto the twig with its cremaster, the caterpillar carefully sheds its skin for the 5th time.
It develops a gold-studded turquoise skin, or “chrysalis” of the monarch pupa, which becomes transparent after 2 weeks, making it possible to actually watch the stages of the metamorphosis. Wings, legs, eyes, and antennae are all visible. During the last few days, cracks spread in the chrysalis wall that allows the new beautiful monarch butterfly to break free.
The butterfly’s wings have been folded inside the cramped chrysalis and contain hundreds of creases. At 1st the wings are soft and limp. But as fluid is pumped through the veins, the wings unfold and become rigid.
Butterflies cannot bite. They must eat a completely liquid diet of nectar and water. They drink through a long tongue called a proboscis. It is attached to a small, flexible bulb in the head. The bulb and tongue work like an eyedropper to suck up nectar. When not in use the proboscis is coiled up like a garden hose under the butterfly’s upper lip…!
Interesting physical characteristics & features of the Pelican.
Male & female pelicans bow to each other– They stand up, arch the neck, spreads their wings and greets their mate (unusual practice of bowing takes place between a pair of pelicans while mating and nesting)…
They cruise at 30 to 70 feet, & their dive is calculated for a plunge to the exact depth at with its prey is swimming (up to 100 ft.) They can spot a 6 inch fish from as high as 75 feet.
It’s large pouch acts like a dip net to catch fish. They are not stored in the pouch but are swallowed head first as they are caught. Each time it dives under water, its pouch takes in 2 ½ gallons of water – which needs to be drained before the fish can be swallowed.
The young pelicans in the nest for around 3 months are dependent on their parents before they learn to fly- each young pelican eats approximately 150 lbs. of fish. With as many as 3 chicks in the nest, the adult must supply 450 lbs. of fish to raise a family. The parents themselves may consume another 600 lbs. of fish – the total catch for a family of 5 may be over 1000 lbs. (1/2 ton of fish in 3 months)…
Indians used to use pelicans instead of fishing poles or nets to catch fish. A live pelican was tied securely to a stake and left on an open stretch of beach. Other pelicans would feed the captive by dropping fish to it. The Indians waited and took the fish.
A pelican drinks salt water from the ocean. It has a special salt gland which allows the body to rid itself of salt concentration. It collects salt, & expels it as a thick liquid through a hole in the pelican’s beak.
Pelicans follow the leader. If the leader glides – all glide. If the leader flaps its wings the other birds do likewise. It helps the pelicans conserve energy, as it flies in the wake of the bird in front of it…
From land a pelican becomes airborne with a single wing beat. Wings are folded high on the pelican’s back to keep them from becoming waterlogged. The spectacular color changes during breeding season help attract prospective mates. A pelican may live for more than 30 years…
Both male and female incubate the eggs. They switch every 72 hours, and each bird fasts while it is in charge of the eggs. As hatching time approaches, parents switch more often until they are fasting only 24 hours at a time. They stand on their eggs for 30 days.
For the 1st week to 10 days, the young are fed hourly (partially digested food). By the 10th day the chicks are strong enough to take food directly from the parents pouch. By the time they youngsters are ready for their flight at 11-12 weeks they outweigh their parents by 20%.
LOVE OF THE TRUTH?
We need to continue to develop and maintain a love for the truth, and spiritually discern anything that is false.
Evolution is only 1 of many deceptions and lies & perversions of the truth. There are hundreds of them these days…
Can you name some of the other FALSE BELIEFS these days…?
The following examples are excerpts from the following link on youtube, if you would like to check it out. ( “100 LIES People Believe” – https://pursuitofglory.org/100-lies-people-believe/).

PRAISE THE LORD FROM WHOM ALL THE BLESSINGS OF CREATION COME FROM
