The Complexity of Simplicity

I was sitting in class yesterday and my teacher said "I'm going to show you all the parts of a flower."
I thought "A flower! This should be easy," but as he began to write all of them on the board I realized I was wrong. You see I was thinking roots, stem, and petals, but I had forgotten about the sepals and pistil and stamen etc. That doesn't even include all the more complicated things that each species of flower has.

This got me thinking. I realized how complicated the simple can be. As I looked farther into this, I realized God made it all perfect so that everything could work in unison. It is a truly amazing thing, and a flower is what we humans think of as something simple. And that is the complexity of simplicity.


  1. Wow, so simple yet complex at the same time! I can't wait to read what you write next!
