At the breakfast table this morning the boys and I read our little devotional together which talked about the gift of creativity God has given each one of us, ways that we can use the gift of creativity, and how God is creative. A quick look at nature speaks to His creativity and amazing detail in design.
We transitioned to a discussion on animals and which ones were the most creative.
The rainbow spider was mentioned (this is a very interesting spider), also the octopus because of it's ability to camouflage and ink, then the chameleon and how it changes color. After a hearty debate, the boys agreed on one animal which displayed the most creativity in design: the skunk.
There are so many wonderful options to consider: the delicate butterfly, the beautiful peacock, the fierce lion, even the magnificent size of the whale or the agility of leopard. But no, the skunk won this morning.
That's boys for you. And, now that I think about it, what a creatively designed creature it is!
