In God's creation, there exists a "Divine Proportion" that is exhibited in a multitude of shapes, numbers, and patterns whose relationship can only be the result of the omnipotent, good, and all-wise God of Scripture.

There are different levels of hunger. First is physical hunger. We need food to sustain us, to keep us alive. But that is not enough, we have an emotional need for acceptance, companionship and love.
