  1. The meaning of gods own creation is that u urself are unique to other people around u and not to be ashamed of that

  2. To be one of God’s wonders is to be unique and to be true to yourself. It’s about not following a crowd and being an individual.Not ditching anything, like your friends,your interests, your sports just to be cool.

  3. The line in this song says ‘a wonder of God’s own creation’ meaning that the person or a person is a mystery to God’s creation. Someone could be very talented in something or even everything and people could say ‘she/he is a wonder of God’s own creation’ because not everyone is as good as them and also people might say it because it is rare that people are really good at everything so they could say it because they’ve never seen something like it before.

  5. This means that everything is made of the same things and by the same God but it doesn’t matter what’s on the outside it’s what is in the inside that counts and how people act

  6. I think that the expression “a wonder of Gods own creation” means that that
    each one of us is a wonder created by God.
    We are all unique and have so many special gifts. We marvel at some people for being extra special wonders created by God such as Joanne O,Riordan from Cork who despite having no limbs is so happy, positive and humorous. Everybody is a wonder of Gods own creation.

  8. “A wonder of gods own creation” means to be different in your own way. Some people may look different or act different to everybody else but this just simply means that they are unique. Not everybody is the same. For example ‘auggie’ from the book ‘Wonder’ looks different to everybody else so he is a wonder of gods own creation.

    it will not be good when it might turn out great

  11. I think that the phrase “wonder of God’s own creation” means that we are all
    special and unique, gifted and talented and special but some of us might stand out in a different way.That doesn’t make them any less special or any less gifted or talented than anyone else. We might wonder why they are so different but they are still one of Gods creations like everyone. In Wonder August is “a wonder” to everyone but he is still unique talented and one of God’s own creation.
