Amazing Things


I think it's BEYOND AMAZING that the Lord loves us so much. That Jesus died for us, to be our redemption. And shows us more of Himself each day. I think it's amazing how good He is to us.
And I'm so thankful.

I praise Him for all these small, amazing things.

I think it's amazing that my sweet friend, Kate, did a walk on Saturday in honor of her brother who was born with Spina Bifida, while her family and brother walked at home. What an amazing sister. 
I think this baby polar bear picture from Pinterest is amazing! Look how tiny he is! Crazy to think he'll grow into this guy! Obviously, the polar bear who's like a foot taller than Zach, not Zach. 

I think bioluminescent phytoplankton is just amazing!! God is so creative. I would love to see them in real life! Our friends, Justin and Catherine, swam with them in Haloing Bay, near Vietnam. 
I know this is old news for everyone else but we're just hearing about it over here in China. 
It is crazy-ness that this guy jumped from a capsule and sky dived from the Stratosphere! 
Insane in the membrane!
The Aurora Borealis is beyond words. I just can't fathom how cool this must be to see the sky light up all different colors! Anyone ever seen it? Is it as amazing as it looks in pictures?

 So, I just got this email from my grandma. I am sure many of you have seen this before. But if not, it's kind of fun to try! And makes you feel like your super smart or something!

Can you raed this? Olny 55 plepoe out of 100 can. I cdnuolt blveiee that I cluod aulaclty uesdnatnrd what I was rdanieg. The phaonmneal pweor of the hmuan mnid, aoccdrnig to a rscheearch at Cmabrigde Uinervtisy, it dseno't mtaetr in what oerdr the ltteres in a word are, the olny iproamtnt tihng is that the frsit and last ltteer be in the rghit pclae. The rset can be a taotl mses and you can still raed it whotuit a pboerlm. This is bcuseae the huamn mnid deos not raed ervey lteter by istlef, but the word as a wlohe. Azanmig huh? Yaeh and I awlyas tghuhot slpeling was ipmorantt!
I don't really believe this! Anyone out there unable to read it?  
I imagine if you already have a difficult time reading or reading doesn't come very naturally to you than it would be difficult. 


What are some amazing things you've seen lately?

Hey,

I had no problem reading either of those messages!!! I guess I am more cleaver than I thought!!

Catherine said...

haha... Cool, I like that. I could read it too :)

I'm amazed by the phytoplankton and that your friends actually got to SWIM in it! How cool is that? Also, I was able to read all the words in that passage, but I kept thinking.....would a dyslexic person be able to decipher it too? Interesting.... Thanks for sharing your Amazing things. :-)

Cute post. You are very creative with what you post! Loving it all! And, yes, even this grandma could read the messed up words. Have seen something similar to it before. I think it might be hard for someone who is dyslexic, but maybe not. Have a good week. You are a great blogger. Your content is very interesting and varied. That's a great thing. Love and prayers.

That baby polar was TOO cute! I can read those things, but I always end up with a big ol headache afterward :(

Thanks for liking up with Super Sunday Sync!

Hope to see you next week :)
