(Video link here.) We’ve watched this slow-motion footage of cheetahs running flat-out several times already. It is just BEAUTIFUL and made us wonder where such a thing could have come from. Who dreamed up that wondrous spotted fur, flight taken with each stride?

We figured it would be a perfect morning “poem” for today: a language all its own.

Who dreamed up that wondrous spotted fur, flight taken with each stride?” I’ll tell you who dreamed it up…the one and only true and living God dreamed up this beautiful creature…and many others. He also created the sun, moon, the planets and the stars. Pretty sweet, right? Even sweeter is the fact that he sent his one and only son to die for our sins. I’ve never known a love so sweet.
