What The Heavens Declare

I think the recent new pictures by the Hubble Space Telescope are astonishing, and worthy of some reflection. Embedded in creation are so many wonderful things to be discovered. Some of them escape our view from their smallness, such as atoms. Others have escaped our view by their vastness, such as the universe. I believe that whenever we encounter something new and astounding in creation, we should take it as a gift from God, and be grateful that his creation is such a wonderful place to explore.

Just imagine what is out there, still remaining to be found and admired.

The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands.
-Psalm 19:1

It is the glory of God to conceal a matter; to search out a matter is the glory of kings.
-Proverbs 25:2

Though a starry sky was already beautiful to be sure...

...there is so much more hidden beyond our sight.
