  • Sometimes the "Duh" factor in news headlines amuses the heck out of me.

    Gee.  You think?  Good thing they're on top of this earthshattering news, for I'd never have figured that out all by myself.  

    However, they do provide a marvelous service by publishing photos such as this one from NASA:

    This was snapped on Tuesday.  Look at all the galaxies, each composed of countless stars, yet God's Word assures us:

        Lift up your eyes on high
        And see who has created these stars,
        The One who leads forth their host by number,
        He calls them all by name;
        Because of the greatness of His might and the strength of His power,
        Not one of them is missing.   (Isaiah 40.26)

  • Oh I hope it doesn't take too long for you to get into BSF!! (There is a waiting list right now.) One thing that just overwhelmed me as we studied creation these past two weeks were these two verses (neither from Genesis, but BSF has you going all over the Bible):

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

    4 what is man that you are mindful of him,
    the son of man that you care for him? (Psalm 8:3-4)


    29 Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground apart from the will of your Father. 30 And even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. (Matthew 10:29-30)

    When you think of the Earth compared to all of God's creation (that we are aware of) is like a single drop of water in the ocean, then think of how small we are in relation to the Earth, yet God Almighty has numbered the very hairs on our head, how amazing is that?? Think of how insignificant one of our hairs is compared to the universe! I am overwhelmed by His love and care for me.

  • This has certainly overwhelmed Dmitry, as several days ago he said people must be "like bugs to Him", when His creation is viewed as a whole.

    Tried to point out the error of his thinking, but not sure he believed me.

  • This is heart stoppingly beautiful. Brings tears to my eyes. What glory, strength, majesty and wonder our Lord posesses.

    I may just have to make this my wallpaper.

  • You should....I made it mine.

  • If you've ever seen the OpinionJournal's "Best of the Web Today" by James Taranto, he has a lot of stuff like this.

    Some recent examples:

    "Compulsive Shopping Carries a Heavy Price"--headline, HealthDay, Sept. 29

    "Bush Narrows Supreme Court List: Judges, lawyers being considered, analysts say"--headline and subheadline,, Sept. 29

    And yours made yesterday's.

    BTW, Best of the Web Today can be had as a daily e-mail, by subscribing (free and all that) at It's a great way to get a lot of laughs at the absurdities of the media and pundit class.

  • BTW, don't worry too much about Dmitry having it wrong on this point. At this stage in his life, I think it's more important that he actually has it half right. A lot of people never get that far. It's progress, it's progress.

  • it! Thanks.

    And you're right about the "progress" observation, BTW.
