A tiny bug... Living in a water hole... in a dirt road... in the middle of nowhere...


"Why should man value himself as more than a small part of the one great unit of creation?
And what creature of all that the Lord has taken the pains to make
is not essential to the completeness of that unit - the cosmos?
The universe would be incomplete without man;
but it would also be incomplete without the smallest transmicroscopic creature
that dwells beyond our conceitful eyes and knowledge."

I actually took this pic back in June, but I read this quote and thought of this little bug...:)

We are all made of the same energy when we break it down far enough!

Yes, we are...
God said to "take dominion over" the earth, not "obliterate" it... Just think of the life this creature leads, bugs have drama too you know, and he knows nothing of whats outside the edge of his puddle.. Isn't that an amazing thought?
