Remarkable Video

Northern Lights above AlaskaThis is simply amazing! The following link will take you to NASA’s astronomy picture of the day site. It is a video, perhaps time-lapse, taken of the earth from the international space station. Further details are given under the video. You simply have to see it!

Astronomy Picture of the Day

That video brought tears to my eyes when I think about the majesty of the Lord who created it all. It is beautiful, particularly the part with the aurora borealis! It is just amazing to think about the grand-ness, the majesty, the beauty, and the complexity of the world that we live in, and then to remember the beautiful, grand, and glorious Creator who made it and set us as the caretakers of it.
