Fish and Birds

 Genesis 1 20-23 

And God said, “Let the water teem with living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth across the vault of the sky.” 21 So God created the great creatures of the sea and every living thing with which the water teems and that moves about in it, according to their kinds, and every winged bird according to its kind. And God saw that it was good. 22 God blessed them and said, “Be fruitful and increase in number and fill the water in the seas, and let the birds increase on the earth.” 23 And there was evening, and there was morning—the fifth day.       (NIV) biblegateway.com

When God created fish and birds,
He said, "let the waters teem with living creatures."
Isn't that just like God?
No half measures,
Just a short sentence,
But mark the creative genius within the words,
Have you seen Crayfish, Blower fish, and Star Fish,
Sea Anemone, Limpets, Plankton, and Killer Whale,
Dolphin, Seal, Sea Elephant, and Sharks in their teeming species?
Octopus, and Penguin, not to mention the variety of
Fish we actually eat,
Red Roman, Tuna, Hake, Salmon,
Don't forget Prawns!
Oh, and what about those itty bitty creatures, that build the giant coral reefs?
And Clown fish, Turtles, and sardines!

If one were to actually study the species and subspecies...
How long would your list of Teemers Be?

And God said, "Let birds fly above the earth, and across the expanse of the sky."
And how the Creative Word produced results!
See how they fly!
Hummingbirds, Kites, Eagles and Geese, Pelicans and Secretary Birds,
Falcons and Hawks, Swallows, Ducks and Wood Pecker birds,
Crows and Larks, Wood Chucks and Grouse,
From the sublime-ist of feathered fowl, to the most comical Parrot and zooming Shrike!

Some birds gallop, check out the Ostrich,
Some fish fly (flying fish) or climb trees (have you heard of them too?)

In all the teeming of fish and fowl,
In the song of Whale or
Hoot of Owl,
In all the tumbling, jumbled individuality,
or conformity of schools of fish and flocks of birds,
Don't miss the signature of,
The Creative Voice!
God, who calls it all into vivacious life and being!
