Let us give thanks to God for all things He created. We though maybe you want to see some of the shells we saw from Florida.
The picture above is of a star fish. There are many different kinds that God created.
The shell above looks like what they call a 'rough scallop'.
The picture above is of a sand dollar.
This one above looks like a conch shell.
Maybe you know this but God created the earth, the seas, the sky, the sun, the moon, all animals and sea creatures! Inside these shells were small creatures, all created by God. I'm sure you may have seen more kinds of shells and maybe you can draw and color some of your own. Let us give thanks to God, who created all things.
For every house is builded by some man ; but he that built all things is God.
God is the creator of the earth, people and all the animals, sea creatures, birds and whatever walks on the ground. Here are some videos for you to see some of what He created.
Unto thee, O God, do we give thanks, unto thee do we give thanks: for that thy name is near thy wondrous works declare. (Psalm 75:1)
In the video below you see some pelicans flying over the ocean waves that are crashing into the shore.
In this next video you can see the pelicans up close. They fly up in the air and then down into the water to catch fish to eat. These are 'Brown Pelicans' and their wings open up to be 6-7 feet wide! Aren't they amazing?!
This next video is of a manitee (and sometimes called a 'sea cow') that God made. They live in the ocean and eat watergrass, weeds and algae. They normally grow up to 10 feet long and weigh 1000 pounds (that's about how much a horse weighs) but they have been known to grow up to 13 feet and weigh 3,500 pounds (that's about how heavy a car is). Watch as it puts it's head out of the water and you can see it's face, isn't it cute?
These next 3 videos are of a gopher tortoise that God made. A gopher tortoise is different than a turtle because it does not go into the water like turtles do and it digs long burrows under the ground about 12 inches deep and up around 40 feet long! They eat grass and all sorts of other plants. He wasn't afraid of us walking up to see him.
The next video is of a squirrel burying an acorn.
Did you enjoy seeing those videos? Let's give God thanks for creating so many different animals and allowing us to see them!
Here are some scriptures from the bible that show how great God is.
For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by Him, and for Him: And He is before all things, and by Him all things consist. (Colossians 1:16-17)
