Now I can't possibly even try to claim that these are photo's I took, these are from the hubble telescope, but it just reminds you how amazing the universe really is, I think sometimes we forget. It's a bit beyond comprehension. The galaxy pictured below is approximately 719,015,515,916,140,800km in diameter. Earth has a diameter of a mere 12,700ish km.

Which bring me to this verse

When I consider your heavens,
the work of your fingers,
the moon and the stars,
which you have set in place,

what is man that you are mindful of him,
the son of man that you care for him?

It is just amazing that the God who made all that, the vastness of it all, cares about us, a tiny spec on a tiny planet, in a tiny solar system, in a tiny galaxy that is one of billions of other galaxies in this massive universe. Whatever you believe you can't deny the universe is an amazing place, I just can't believe it was all one big accident.

If you are wondering where this mornings little outburst came from check out the dvd indescribable by Louie Giglio, it's one of those where you know it in your head, but it just reminds you how amazing God is. He made this immensely awe inspiring universe, and yet he cares about us and the details of our lives.
