My anatomy-teaching husband was at it tonight, pointing to the textbook-perfect veins in our son’s arm.   I just enjoyed a moment of bliss regarding the wonder of our Creator, my smart husband, and my perfect specimen of a son.  You see we mothers still take delight in our sons even when they reach 62 year of age!

Anyway, on to another marvelous thought.  Jesus (Matt 10:20) says, “the very hairs of your head are numbered!” I’ve heard folks poke fun at that statement by referring to God’s “hair-counters,” pointing out how ridiculous it is to literally believe the Bible. Or, do most think it is just a legitimate exaggeration, poetically speaking?

I say Jesus may have been giving a little insight into what science has discovered regarding deoxyribonucleic acid—DNA! Scientists may just be proving how that our hairs are numbered. Wouldn’t we all have genes that show whether we will have thick hair, thin hair, or maybe be bald? Wouldn’t that be marked by a DNA number? Isn’t that a number for one’s hair?

I’m not smart enough to understand all that, but makes sense to me. I get a thrill out of knowing God designed all the little details of our bodies. How beautifully and wonderfully made, we are!

About oneta hayes

ABOUT ME Hello. To various folks I am Neat’nee, Mom, Grandma Neta, Gramma, Aunt Neta, Aunt Noni, Aunt Neno, and Aunt Neto (lots of varieties from little nieces and nephews). To some I’m more like “Didn’t you used to be my teacher?” or “Don’t I know you from someplace?” To you, perhaps, I am a Fellow Blogger. Not “fellow” like a male or a guy, but “fellow” like a companion or an adventurer. I would choose to be Grandma Blogger, and have you pull up a chair, my website before you, while I tell you of some days of yore. I have experienced life much differently than most of you. It was and is a good life. I hope to share nuggets of appreciation for those who have gone before me and those who come after me. By necessity you are among those who come after me and I will tell you of those who came before. Once upon a time in a little house on a prairie - oops, change that lest I commit plagiarism - and change that “house on the prairie” to “dugout on the prairie.” So my story begins...

    Thank you. Yes indeed. Sometimes this is something we tend to forget but indeed how wonderfully we are made. Even as we age the process of change shows Godly purpose in all things. (including adaptability).

    God doesn’t have to count hairs to know their number–he already knows everything. (Even in the case of some of us for whom the number decreases every day!) But he cares that much about each of us that he keeps track of even the smallest details of our lives. He knows the things about each of us that matter to us, as well as the tiny details that we would never bother to learn about ourselves. I think that is awesome and wonderful. J.

      I love his giving man a problem to figure out and then science comes dragging along and confirms what God said in the first place. That’s the reason I like the DNA number thing. But of course, he could tell me at a given time how many hairs I have, but that seems sort of pointless, except of course, to show me how much he cares for every detail. 😀

    I too often marvel over how my sons are so wonderful, despite their DNA.

  4. I think in our human eye’s we try to limit God and his capabilities, which is where we fall woefully short. Even before I was born, he knew me – every atom of me 🙂
