The creation of science…

Equipped with his five senses, man explores the universe around him

and calls the adventure Science.”

– Edwin Hubble

Science is an amazing world to discover.  Enriched in it’s own vocabulary, one must almost start there to understand the depths of its riches.

Last night my older son and I had the privilege of attending a lecture on Astronomy.  Mr. Kevin Manning, a retired astrophysicist, shared his love of the discovery of the universe with those in attendance.  It was more than eye opening to me.  The images of our universe that he shared were beyond words. He shared things that the naked eye cannot see and images that rarely occur.  I sat in awe as he shared the images of Venus passing through the suns orbit at just the right time for us to see.    Click on the image of the sun below and see for yourself the beauty of it…


The galaxies, the Milky Way, Constellations, I couldn’t possibly write about all the things that we learned, heard, and captured with our eyes in this one setting. I can, however, tell you that I am in awe.

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth…the heavens are telling the glory of God; and the firmament (dome) proclaims his handiwork.

Who am I in all this universe that he notices me? Notices you?

Truly we are greater than the stars in heaven because He so loved the world that he gave His One And ONLY Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal live.

We are a part of something so grand that I cannot even fathom it, but to get a glimpse of it is breathtaking.  Take a look at all that he has created and rejoice. For as the heavens are high above the earth, so great is his steadfast love toward those who fear him.

An astronomy question for you- Which planet is your favorite and why? 

 Just a side note -I encourage you, if you ever have the chance to hear Kevin speak, to do so.  You’ll be glad you did. Check out his website and Vote now to increase this passing knowledge to others.
