God Is in the Details: Jellyfish

The graceful, ballerina-like ocean dances of jellyfish speak of a deeper magic invested in living creatures all around us.

There is more than what we see.

Such seemingly simple, mindless creatures have been graced with unique beauty, and there are endless surprises in their variety. They glide through the seas, tendrils trailing, inner lights glowing, bodies pulsating with rhythm.

God has poured Himself into details hidden beneath deep water.

The Holy Spirit gives us eyes to see infinity reflected in the world around us, which shouts, then whispers, then shouts again of God's glory.

See below for jellies, jellies, jellies!

PS Thanks, Lavinia, for your question that inspired this! :)

Jelly fish are so unusual aren't they? One of many God's creatures, each with a purpose!
