Tiny Engines that Could

Tiny Engines, originally uploaded by Katherine Gruender "Kat".

Is not amazing to you that God made all of us and all we see around us? If you aren't amazed maybe you haven't seen or heard a humming bird lately.
Sitting under the porch over hang waiting for the Cog Rail at Pike's peak with all the noise around me i could hear these tiny birds flying in to catch a drink far above my head. They are smaller then my hand and have wings that flap their tiny wings 50 times per second. Wow! Here is some more info:

A hummingbird's wing is flexible at the shoulder, but inflexible at the wrist.
When hovering, hummingbirds hold their bodies upright and flap their wings horizontally in a shallow figure-8. As the wings swing back they tilt flat for a moment before the wings are drawn

Most hummingbirds flap their wings about 50 or so times a second. This means all we can see is a blur. The Magnificent Hummingbird is an exception; sometimes it flaps it wings slow enough for individual wing beats to be perceived.

The tiny feet of hummingbirds are almost useless except for perching; if hummers want to travel two inches, they must fly. Hummingbirds lift from perches without pushing off; they rise entirely on their own power, flapping their wings at almost full speed before lifting off. Though they fly very fast, they can suddenly stop and make a soft landing. They are so light they do not build up much momentum.

How could anyone say these birds are not created by the God, or Great Creator?
How do we question His power and His hand in our own creation?
I'll never understand. I know personally without Him I am nothing and would one day cease to exist. With Him I will live forever in His presence.

Be completely informed...Go to Genesis and read about YOUR creation.
