Genesis 1:14 And God said, “Let there be lights in the vault of the sky to separate the day from the night, and let them serve as signs to mark sacred times, and days and years,

We recently went to the McDonald Observatory and were blessed with the opportunity to look through a 16 inch telescope at the planet of Jupiter. We saw two of the moons and the result of the solar eclipse of one of the moons which left a black dot on the planet. To see it for ourselves instead of on tv or by pictures was an awesome experience. While we looked the astronomer explained what we were seeing. This event made us feel even closer to our God Who created all this and beyond. We only see a small part of His creation and we don’t make very good steward of what He has made. As we look at the world in which God has placed us we must be mindful we are such a very small part of His creation. Yet, in spite of us being such a small part, He loves us so very much that He wants us to be with Him throughout eternity. He made that possible by sending part of Himself, His Word through which all things were created, Jesus Christ to take our human likeness and shed His blood for our sins. No matter what we may face in our life on this earth that one thing is more than enough for us to be continually thankful and praising Him.
