Our Amazing Bodies!


Yesterday we were lucky enough to be invited to go to "Body Worlds" with my sister Whitney and her friend for her 18th birthday! That is what Whit wanted to do for her birthday! This was an amazing exhibit that was held at the Leonardo down town! I was just so fascinated with everything. I am amazed even more at this amazing bodies that our Father in Heaven has crated for us! There were babies form the 5th week of pregnancy and on up until 33 weeks. You were able to see the difference between a smokers lungs and a non smokers lungs, a healthy knee and one with severe arthritis, they showed the veins, organs, and muscles of the body and on and on and on. They also showed a healthy organ and next to that would be one with tumors. They showed obesity and so much more. This was so amazing to me. I was not grossed out at all, but more fascinated with our bodies and the precision that it must have taken in creating our bodies. The only down side to this was the 2 hour wait in line before hand, but it was worth the wait! I was truly amazed at the human body and am truly grateful for mine... even 20 pound over weight!

Oh, I wanted to see that exhibit while we were in SLC over the holidays. We went on a Monday night with Andrew's parents and it was an hour and a half wait! Now I wish we would've waited in line. I'm glad you had a good experience...I think the human body is fascinating and that it is truly a testament that we have a Creator.
