Have you ever stopped to think about how that meter-long strand of DNA inside each of your cells controls pretty much everything about you? You have your physical appearance because of your DNA. The only way your body operates is by the reading of your DNA. It's pretty incredible. For me, it just proves even more that there is a God that is watching out for us and loves us. How could something so precise and perfectly compatible come together all on its own? It couldn't. One of my favorite books is "The Language of God" by Francis S. Collins. He was the head of the human genome project. He's an incredible man. Today, I studied for and took a test for my genetics class. It ended up being about 6 hours of straight genetics. And the best part? I loved every second of it. That's when you know you are in the right major. The way that life incredibly falls together is beautiful and studying that through learning genetics is fascinating.
