A camel looks like a horse that was planned by a committee. ~Author Unknown
These are some of the camels we saw when we went to the Safari Park last year. Not very pretty, are they? At least not by our standards. Yet, the word camel means beauty in Arabic. And in fact, they are beautifully made for the hot desert. They can go for months without water and run for miles without stopping. They can carry passengers and many pounds of supplies that would stop many trucks. They can shut their nostrils against the wind and sand. And they are the only mammal to have oval shaped red blood cells. This is so they will flow rather than clump when they are dehydrated. They are a marvel of design. Oh, and they also steal. They were grabbing the food bowls out of the hands of the feeders, and chewing them up, as you can see here. That's another thing, they can eat anything sharp without hurting their mouths! Who knew? Seems that God designed these animals with every single specialty they would ever need.
“We look at this Son and see the God who cannot be seen. We look at this Son and see God's original purpose in everything created. For everything, absolutely everything, above and below, visible and invisible, rank after rank after rank of angels—everything got started in him and finds its purpose in him. He was there before any of it came into existence and holds it all together right up to this moment.”
