Raindrops



I took this photo of rain drops on the leaf of a big Phormium we have in a pot on the patio. I love the colour of the leaves, especially when the sun in shining through them.

I was thinking as I took the photo that probably that drop contains a huge amount of miniscule life that we cannot possibly see. Bacteria, and other things that I can't name. If we have any microbiologists around they could probably tell me! But it is all God's world. We look at mountains, majestic scenery, crashing waves and praise God for his glories. Rightly, of course. But he is there, in the small, invisible things as well. Probably hard to get excited about them. But he needs our praise for the small things in life as well as the obvious.

I'm going out with my magnifying glass now!

This is a very nice post Gilly and a good reminder that he is to be praised and noted in the Big and small things. Hope you are having a good day. Blessings to you.

A lovely picture Gilly. And it is right to be excited by ALL of Gods creation, not just the huge and impressively magnificent bits, but the small and the hidden too! x

Hello Gilly, thank you for dropping in on my blog - you are very welcome.
I, too, am in my 70's and not walking well so most of my photos are taken in our garden or indoors.
But I'm really enjoying the photography alongside lots of crafting.
So many lovely things to see in this world! Connie.
