“Oh, Lord, our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth! ” I think Kelsey got the idea of praising God for His wonders one day in January. As Dave and I babysat the Hawaiian “grands,” we decided to let Kelsey roam through Moanalua Gardens in Honolulu. On this slate-smooth enormous piece of tree, we spread out our picnic lunch and just spent time appreciating the diversity God created in this one garden spot.
Although we don’t know the name of this redheaded specimen, he looks like a member of the cardinal family.
This bird, also unknown to us, caught our eye for its large eyes and blue-gray to brown to black coloring.
Although both photos above are ginger plants, look at the variation in shape and color.
The children showed signs of needing afternoon naps, so we headed to the parking lot and saw the entire fence covered in bougainvillea. On the same branches we pointed out red, orange and pink blossoms, and I think Kelsey wanted to take a sniff of each grouping of flowers. Maybe we all should take the time to take in some of the amazing diversity God has placed in our world.
