i ♥ faces - "hands on" fun!

Tuesday, February 23, 2010

I guess they don't call these "challenges" for nothing? 

I chose this photo because it reminds me of how creative and powerful my God is.  her little hand compared to the orangutan is so small and helpless.  and yet God made both.  so I watched this orangutan for awhile at the Brookfield zoo and was in awe of her beauty.
she mothered...like me.
she ate...like me.
she looked at the people coming through...like I looked at her.
and when she climbed, it was breathtaking.  I cannot climb like that.  no, I cannot.
she was beautiful and a complete pleasure to watch.  her hands were completely designed for strength.  strength in climbing...
strength in holding her kids...
strength for weaving through the maze with ease that was made for her. 
it made me very much in awe and admiration of her and somewhat in fear of her.
breathtaking.

How cute! I can just imagine the wheels turning in that little mind by touching the hand of one of those "big hairy monkeys". A sweet picture often seen, but not captured like it should be.
