Just a Grain of Sand?!….

Professor Gary Greenberg who holds a PHD in Biomedical Research from the University College in London recently spent 5 years searching the globe for sand grains to photo. Using tiny accupuncture needles he sought to to find and arrange the most perfect specimens. Once found, he magnified them 250x real life.

What did he find?….The photos will amaze you!

Each grain of sand….a tiny treasure…

Each grain of sand….a true work of art.

Each grain of sand…an infusion of God’s creative genius.

Each grain of sand….unique and original.

“For you make me jubilant, Lord, by your deeds; at the works of your hands I shout for joy.  How great are your works, Lord! How profound your purpose!” Ps 92: 5-6

Heavenly Father, how great and wonderful are your works. If just one grain of sand bespeaks your artistry in ways unsurpassed, how much greater the beauty of the human person. Each a tiny treasure; Each a true work of art; Each an infusion of Your creative genius; Each unique and original. Give me eyes to see beyond the flesh to the magnificent work of art in each person that crosses my path. Magnify my vision to detect the glorious reflection of You in those I  meet. Through Christ, Our Lord Amen.

  1. I think of how in the summer I’m always fussing at my family who bring sand in from the beach…but now…what a change of perspective about something as simple as a grain of sand! Blessings.

    • Yes, who knew? What other beauties have we yet to discover? It’s exciting…I guess that is what heaven will be for…eternally being in awe of ALL the beauty we never saw with our earthly eyes. Blessings.

  2. And we are promised that the members of God’s family will be as numerous as the grains of sand on the earth! Think how wonderful if we could magnify His love enough so that others could see as clearly the wonders of his love, the way see these magnified grains of sand in these photos above.

  3. Oh yes to magnify His love…how wonderful that would be. Although I think each of us does try to do that now…we strive to be a reflection of His glory. Perhaps we all need to adjust our vision. Blessings.

  4. Thank you…and wow! whoever said the beauty’s in the detail was right! What an excellent post. And, thank You, Lord, for creating and sharing with us wonder upon wonder…what a mighty God!
