There’s a Parasaurolophus in My Toast!

A great “Calvinism” from this morning: Our two-year-old runs into my office this morning excitedly showing me how the segment that remains of his toast looks just like the head of a Parasaurolophus! It’s so much fun to observe how he delights in the smallest things and how he has such a unique enthusiasm for the creatures the Lord has made! And you know what… it really did look like the head of a Parasaurolophus!

Ripley’s Aquarium of the Smokies

“Then God said, ‘Let the waters abound with an abundance of living creatures…’ So God created great sea creatures and every living thing that moves, with which the waters abounded, according to their kind… And God saw that it was good.” —Genesis 1:20,21

What an amazing age we live in where we can stand face-to-face with creatures from all over the world, beholding the unfathomable creative power of the Lord. Below are just a few photos from our time at the country’s premier aquarium in Gatlinburg.
