The Mad Scientist: It’s a Small World After All

Coleus stem tip, l.s. Buttercup root, stele, c.s.It’s amazing how, being five weeks into our summer break, this is the first day it has felt like summer. Having a large portion of our outside responsibilities drop away, we are all breathing a sigh of relief and beginning to relax.

That doesn’t mean, however, that we are doing nothing. Today we planned for more summer school fun and delved further into the world of microbiology. 

More and more, as we look through our microscope, we grow in admiration and appreciation for God’s handiwork. While we often have a chance to see the big picture, having the opportunity to peer into the minute details of creation is awe-inspiring. Biology Slide

Every piece of creation is especially and beautifully made, with facets carefully planned for. There is no portion unneeded or wasted; each is essential to the function of that creation. It amazes us how no attribute is overlooked or thoughtlessly glossed over, but that it all works together in perfect harmony.

My children are very much enjoying our look into the small world often unseen. Each week presents new specimens to explore and know. Each slide increases their interest and awe of God.

Borrowing this microscope has been one of the greatest highlights of this summer.

“While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen; for the things which are seen are temporal, but the things which are not seen are eternal.”

– 2 Corinthians 4:18
