Three of Animals

Wonder how He did it? How did God “invent” the spectacular animals that inhabit the planet we call earth? Was there a blueprint laid out in the heavenlies, or was all in the “mind” of God–from tiniest of insect to the impressive girth of the Orca whale to the fuzzy down of a yellow duckling? Huh? How came such glory?

Probably we never will know such answer, but I revel in the love God had for us humans when he created the remarkable animal kingdom. What joy these beings give to us. I bring you three exception specimens today. Take a look–and a listen.

Chilli the giant bullock

From the Daily Mail

His name is Chilli and he’s described as a gentle giant.

Which is just as well for his handler, Tara Nirula, pictured by his side.

His owners have contacted the Guinness Book of Records who are currently assessing his credentials and comparing them to other big bovines.

The black and white Friesian bullock weighs well over a ton and at the same height as a small elephant, casts a shadow over his cattle companions who are about 5ft.

More information about this spectacular animal is here.

For some of us the prospect of waking up at 4am to catch the dawn chorus is little more than a dream. If you are one of these folk, now you won’t even have to leave the comfort of your bed because you can download our specially recorded dawn chorus.

On International Dawn Chorus Day, last Sunday, Team WOtM set out for a wood in Gloucestershire to experience the cacophony of bird song that is the Dawn Chorus. This is the time of year when the UK Dawn Chorus is at its best, because the migrant birds, warblers, flycatchers and of course, the nightingale have arrived to add their songs to the chorus.

I just clicked on the link below that says download the audio here. The bird sounds are lilting, comforting and peaceful. Beautiful.

You just must watch this monkey here. He works in a bar…(heaven, help us all. πŸ™‚ )

    My boy, you are so talented. You must take your show on the road. πŸ™‚
    Don’t you think we need a monkey for our Sunday school. Can’t you just see the little critter passing around the offering plate, or handing out cookies to the youngsters!


  3. That cow is HUGE! I’d be terrified if I crossed paths with something like that. When my dad was a kid, he was looking at a field and thought he saw a horse. Come to find out, it was a really, really big dog—and it chased him. lol

    I like your idea of using a monkey in Sunday school. That would be so cool.

    Jen, how do you like Jayleigh’s thought of riding a cow in a race? You would really be a cowgirl then, huh? πŸ™‚


  4. Hi, Dean and Jayleigh–

    Been traveling this morning, arrived in Crestline about half an hour ago. I’m going to check out Belgian Blue cows, Dean, and cow racing, Jayleigh, although I have never heard of such a thing, and don’t know if you’re teasing or not.


  5. Have you ever seen “cow racing”? They had cows nearly as big as the one pictured and they rode them as if they were horses… with saddles and everything.

    I grew up around Holstein (black and white) cows. I would have never thought to ride one. Ever. But it was funny as can be to watch!

    Amazing cow!!! Take a sec and look up “Belgian Blue”!! An equally amazing breed. Now that is a example of God Greatness! What a bbq that would make! Peace


  7. God’s creatures really are amazing. The bird sounds were very peaceful and almost made me sleepy. Whoever would’ve thought of a monkey working in a bar? Thanks for sharing.
