The Cross In Our Bodies

I received the coolest email today.  Instead of copying the entire thing on here, I thought I'd summarize it. 

It's no secret that the human body is a miraculous creation.  Have you ever heard of 'laminins'?  Laminins are a family of proteins that are an integral part of the structural scaffolding of basement membranes in almost every animal tissue.  Basically, laminins are what hold us together....LITERALLY!  They are cell adhesion molecules.  They are what holds one cell of our bodies to the next cell.  Without them, we would literally fall apart!  And guess what they look like?  You may have guessed already because of the post title - 
 a CROSS!!!

Now tell me that our God is not the coolest!  That's amazing to me!  The glue that holds us together...ALL of us...is the shape of the cross! 

Colossians 1:15-17
"He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation.  For by Him all things were created; things in heaven and on earth , visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or Authorities; All things were created by Him and for Him.  He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together".

You might also find this if you google laminin:
