ever thought about the details of creation? The organization that God
used, to make everything work together. Take some time and think about
how incredibly organized God is.
looking at a leaf a while back. This little seemingly insignificant
green thing has a very important job to do. If you look closely you
can see the veins running through it. Then you noticed the color. I
asked myself, why does it change colors when it is separated from the
branch it came from? I also wondered why the bottom is a different
shade from the top. Now I want to give you the official Wikipedia
definition of a leaf.
"A leaf is
an above-ground plant organ specialized for photosynthesis. For this
purpose, a leaf is typically flat (laminar) and thin, to expose the
chloroplast containing cells (chlorenchyma tissue) to light over a
broad area, and to allow light to penetrate fully into the tissues.
Leaves are also the sites in most plants where respiration,
transpiration, and guttation take place. Leaves can store food and
water, and are modified in some plants for other purposes".
Whew that's a mouthful
So here is Dave's definition of a leaf.
leaf is an organism that has the ability to produce natural sugar from
sunlight, carbon dioxide, and water with oxygen as its waste product.
The natural sugar is food for the tree or plant that it is a part of.
Now let's think about that for a minute. Here is a green thing with
veins in it that takes sunlight, carbon dioxide, which is what is left
from the air after we have used it, and water from the sky which is
evaporated from the ground, and not only produces food for its host
but at the same time it produces oxygen as a waste product for us to
breath! The truth is that without leaves of the trees and plants we
would soon all die from suffocation due to lack of oxygen! And oxygen
is the WASTE PRODUCT of a leaf! Wow! Is that important or what?
Scientist have determined the leaf to be the most important life
giving organism on the planet.
to the original subject, If we take time to look at the simplicities
of Gods creation we can not only see how important the balance of
nature is but we also can see the incredible intelligence, detail, and
organization of our God. Until later, Dave
