Breed: Guinea Pig (Practically hairless)
Price: S$150 (USD120) for one, S$200 (USD160) for a pair
My neighbourhood pet shop is promoting the Skinny Pig and I like stopping by to check them out. To me, this critter fits the traditional definition of cute—ugly but adorable!
My Favourite Bird
Pelicans always look adorably goofy to me. That large throat pouch never fails to make me smile 🙂
My Favourite Dog
Chow Chow resembles a miniature bear with a lion’s mane. Its unique tongue comes in one of my favourite colours—purple! Origin: China, where it’s known as 松狮犬 (Songshi Quan)
My Favourite Cat
Don’t know what breed Harry Cat is, but I really like this picture from a children’s book called “The Cricket in Times Square” written by George Selden and illustrated by Garth Williams. I’ve added one of my Guiding Principles and made it the cover of files containing songs that I use to lead group worship. The words in Chinese 敬 拜 耶 和 华 (prono: jìng bài yē hé huá) mean Worship Yahweh/Jehovah.
The picture reminds me of Isaiah 11:6 in the Bible, “And the wolf shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid, and the calf and the young lion and the fatted domestic animal together; and a little child shall lead them.” …..World Peace!
A Thing Of Beauty Is A Joy Forever
“I think that I shall never see
A poem lovely as a tree
A tree that looks at God all day
And lifts her leafy arms to pray”

I call this the Fruit Fly—what imagination! -(Artist unknown)
Love the way the stalk was split to make butterfly antennae!
Red Blood Cells seen under a scanning electron microscope that detects incredible details of 1-5 nanometre in size. They’re the most common type of blood cells and they have the tall task of carrying oxygen to our entire body. Women have some 4-5 million RBCs per cubic millimetre of blood and in men, it’s 5-6 million.
Sheer artistry! -(Artist unknown)
“Those who wait for and hope in the Lord shall renew their strength & power; they shall soar on wings like eagles and mount up close to God; they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint or become tired”

Count your many blessings, see what God hath done”

I’m always amazed by the sheer variety and fine details in God’s Creation. It’s no wonder that we’re told in Genesis that “God looked at everything He had made, and He was very pleased.”
You’re so right! Father God is extravagant in His gifts to mankind 🙂
His ultimate blessing is giving us Jesus Christ to redeem and restore us to fellowship with Him!
Hahaha! Great stuff!
I’m really glad that you like the post. Abundant blessings!
Someone once commented that God loves mankind so much that He gave us such a wondrous “playground” 🙂
