The Wonder of You “Pay Forward” #209

Today’s “Pay Forward” gift is - The Wonder of You. Consider the following facts about your body, as reported by Dr. John Medina, genetic engineer at the University of Washington: The average human heart pumps more than 1,000 gallons a day, more the 55 million gallons in a lifetime. The lungs contain 1000 miles of capillaries. The process of exchanging oxygen for carbon dioxide than is so complicated that it is more difficult to exchange oxygen for carbon dioxide than for a man shot out of a cannon to carve the Lord’s Prayer on the head of a pin as he passes by. DNA contains about 2,000 genes per chromosome-18 meters of DNA are folded into each cell nucleus. A nucleus is six microns long. This is like putting 30 miles of fishing line into a cherry pit. And it isn’t simply stuffed in. It is folded in. If folded one way, the cell becomes a skin cell. If another way, a liver cell, and so forth. To write out the information in one cell would take 300 volumes, each volume 500 pages thick. The human body contains enough DNA that if it were stretched out, it would circle the sun 260 times. The body uses energy efficiently. It an average adult rides a bike for one hour at ten miles per hour, it uses the amount of energy contained in three ounces of carbohydrate. If a car were this efficient with gasoline, it would get 900 miles to a gallon. Your body is remarkable. Have you thanked God for it?
Thy Love, Thy Will be done.
