I firmly believe that God created everything, from the animals, mountains, forests, etc.

I often see God in nature from the animals that he made. For example Vultures (I’m okay with Vultures, but my favorite wild animal is the Killer Whale), they eat the dead bodies of whatever died on the side of the road. I thought about it one day: “If we didn’t have Vultures (Or most scavengers for that matter) then there would dead things everywhere, left there to rot.” So God gave all animals a purpose and it to where it best serves the world he made. That’s how I look at it, but I do want to ask God the purpose of mosquitos when I get to heaven, lol. Also, I see God’s work in Sunsets, my Dad really does say it best: “The sunsets are the painting and brush work of God”

So yeah, just comment how you see God and his amazing works in nature ^_^

Death, destruction, sickness, misery, lack, are all results of the fall, not His original plan for His creation. I don't think there will be vultures in heaven. (Maybe killer whales will be vegan)

Hmm, interesting viewpoint, I don’t think bugs will be heaven that’s for sure, lol.

I had this idea of getting rid of mosquitos is to somehow get all the stagnant water moving. Using bath fizzbombs perhaps?

Yeah I’m really not, like butterflies and ladybugs are pretty, but other bugs like ants, mosquitoes, and roaches, HUGE NOPE, lol. I will literally run away if I see a roach, they are just so gross and freaky looking. It doesn’t help when I lived in Deer Park (It’s in the Houston area...in Texas), we had trees everywhere and you know what that means? Tree roaches everywhere! I have moved around a lot, but one of the places my family lived at in Deer Park, was a town home rent place...thing...I dunno, lol. But anyway I was sleeping on the bottom pull-out mattress of my brother’s bunk bed/Desk thing, and there was a tree roach flying towards me in the middle of the night. I like animals, but bugs, nope, just nope 😅

Have you ever seen ladybugs up close attacking aphids? They're brutal! lol I have a friend who's an entomologist and she's always catching all sorts of things at the park, like dragonflies, roaches, cicadas, praying mantis, and wolf spiders. She's kind of made me more at ease around bugs, so the other week when I saw a cockroach (not an American cockroach though) got in and was crawling on the wall and ceiling of the kitchen, I was able to calmly motivate it with a plastic tray towards the front door where it walked out, upside-down mind you, but still.

That’s really cool, you’re brave for being able to deal with that roach, that’s for sure. Yeah what I meant for ladybugs is that it’s fun to find them, and see them crawling by. I do in fact know about the horrors of “close up of a bug’s face”, spongebob taught me that with the episode when they go to Sandy’s house, and the caterpillar they raised becomes a butterfly, and they freak out when the butterfly lands on their water holding helmets, and that cut to the horrifying bug face and noises. So yeah...I like them from a distance, lol.

Whaaaat??? Bugs are amaaaaaazing and beautiful!!!!! God's handiwork is all over each one. I may not be a huge fan of every single one, but they all are so unique.

Yeah they are cool, I just don’t like roaches, mosquitoes, and ants. I have scorpions where I live, they are freaky, but like watching them quickly crawl around is kinda cool to watch, didn’t know they bend their tail down to go faster, never thought about it, lol.

Amen, Animals are splendid and we where designed to admire those amazing creatures, but then the sin came and we could no longer get along with all of them....I want to be the friendo of a lion in heaven, just imagine walking and playing with elephants, rhinos and lions, and well, every other creature, without any consequence. That was the original plan and that i think is going to be like in some way heaven.

So, before sin a mosquito had a redeeming value? That will be great to see when this earth is restored.(y):giggle:

I like clouds, they are so cool, especially when you can see stuff in the clouds. Like this “thumbs up”, it’s like God is giving us a thumbs up, that everything will be okay ^_^
