Psalms 104:24

"How many are your works, O LORD!
In wisdom you have made them all;
The earth is full of your creatures."

How amazing is the Earth and all of God's creation?  Everything has been designed to work together in harmony.  We can consider the mighty rivers that flow from the mountains or how the grass of the field grows to feed the cattle.  We live on a planet that overflows with life of all sorts, all of it amazing and beautiful.  And it is God who makes it all move.  God does not create lifeless beings as we create, but rather everything that the Lord touches is alive!

But do you see it?  When you walk around on Earth, do you take the time to appreciate a leaf or marvel at the intricacies of an insect?  Do you take for granted every perfect sunset painted by the Creator, or simply tread upon the flowers in His fields?  In all these things God has displayed the magnitude of his splendor, yet these very things are unacknowledged in favor of our own devices which do not live.  No one can create like our God.

But above it all lies God's prized creation.  Above all things has God valued this one thing.  That thing is you.  Us.  All of humanity was been made in the image of God himself, both male and female.  To God, you are much more beautiful than any sunset on any beach and much more valued than any forest or mountain.  God has redeemed you so that he can once again enjoy you.  That's how precious you are to Him.
