The Jordan River is in the middle of the land and runs vertical in picture and separates the nations of Israel and Jordan. Great valleys drain into the Jordan River Basin. Sea of Galilee is in the north (top of picture) and the Dead Sea in the south (bottom of picture).
8 "But thou, Israel, art my servant, Jacob whom I have chosen, the seed of Abraham my friend.
9 Thou whom I have taken from the ends of the earth, and called thee from the chief men thereof, and said unto thee, Thou art my servant; I have chosen thee, and not cast thee away.

The Beauty of God's Creation
"Bees beat their wings about 200 times a second. Their thorax muscles do not contract on each nerve firing, but rather vibrate like a plucked rubber band. This is efficient, since it lets the system consisting of muscle and wing operate at its resonant frequency, leading to low energy consumption. Further, it is necessary, since insect motor nerves generally cannot fire 200 times per second. These types of muscles are called asynchronous muscles and are found in the insect wing systems in families such as Hymenoptera, Diptera, Coleoptera, and Hemiptera..."
"Bees have five eyes, two large compound eyes and three ocelli. The compound eyes are situated on either side of the bee’s head... The compound eyes are composed of thousands of little lenses or facets. Together, the facets help bees see color, movement, and patterns.

The Beauty of God's Creation
As I have said before-do we really begin to understand the marvelous Creation of God? And also, do we begin to understand how sin has corrupted it? I marvel at life forms from simple insects to the great elephants and whales. (For more of these kinds of thoughts see book listed below.)
