Glimpses of grace seen in the everyday

Feeling Puny but Loved

Want to see something amazing?  Here it is:  http://atlasoftheuniverse.com/  Click on the top line that says “12.5 light years from the sun” and keep on going to see  layer upon layer of universe until our own solar system and even galaxy are dwarfed into nothing, and we “see” way out to 14 billion light years from the sun.  It claims that there are 30 billion trillion stars in the visible universe!

Now imagine what kind of God made all this—and still cares about little ol’ me and you! 

The heavens declare the glory of God,
     and the sky displays what his hands have made.
One day tells a story to the next.
One night shares knowledge with the next
     without talking,
     without words,
     without their voices being heard.
Yet, their sound has gone out into the entire world,
     their message to the ends of the earth.
He has set up a tent in the heavens for the sun,
     which comes out of its chamber like a bridegroom.
Like a champion, it is eager to run its course.
It rises from one end of the heavens.
It circles around to the other.
Nothing is hidden from its heat.  (Psalm 19:1-6)
