A Dinosaur For Dinner

Good morning!

You’ve gotta love kids’ imaginations! ♡

This was what I found when cleaning up for the day in Miss Marilyn’s classroom.


Have you ever had a dinosaur for dinner?

For the main course? Or simply as a dinner guest to join you?

How long do you think you would leave  a dinosaur in the microwave anyway?

I’d say for as long as he wants if you asked me!

Our friend here, Mr. Brachiosaurus, is a gentle giant, a plant-eater. He would simply eat the salad if you had him to dinner. No need to fear him.

They are one of the favorites among the boys in our classroom.  Right up there with trains and sharks. You would think their massive size and strength would frighten a pre-schooler. But instead they fascinate.

Kind of like our God. His mere power frightens many. Yet that same power fascinates. That same God that created the dinosaur made me and made you. And He didn’t have to put us in a microwave oven for incubation. He spoke us all into being. Just like that. Every last detail.

I find God’s creation utterly fascinating. How could you not believe in Him? The intricate details. The mastermind behind it all. The variety. Each unique. It leaves me in awe.  

Let’s all look at God’s creation with awe. Let’s treat it with the utmost respect. Every last living portion of it. It all matters to God. It should matter to us as well.

And let’s all find contentment that our friends the dinosaurs are now extinct. I’d hate to find seating or foot the dinner bill for that matter if I had one for dinner. 🙂

Behold now behemoth, which I made with thee; he eateth grass as an ox. Lo now, his strength is in his loins, and his force is in the navel of his belly! He moveth his tail like a cedar: the sinews of his stones are wrapped together. His bones are as strong pieces of brass, his bones are like bars of iron. He is the chief of the ways of God he that made him can make his sword to approach unto him.
Job 40:15-19

Love and laughter,
