Lizzie and I often take the dogs for a walk at night and when we do, quite often the sky is clear and the stars are visible. But, there is so much light pollution in the sky that only a few of them are visible. The other day, I came across this picture of the night sky and sent it to her via email and she loved it. And to think, some people say all this came into being by accident!!! Its no secret that over the past couple of years I have been interested in pocket watches and one of my favorite places to visit is Northernpartners.com. The site has a video that I find most interesting, even though it is aimed at the younger set.

The Psalmist has put it this way...
1 Yahweh, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth,
who has set your glory above the heavens!
2 From the lips of babes and infants you have established strength,
because of your adversaries, that you might silence the enemy and the avenger.
3 When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers,
the moon and the stars, which you have ordained;
4 what is man, that you think of him?
What is the son of man, that you care for him?
and crowned him with glory and honor.
6 You make him ruler over the works of your hands.
You have put all things under his feet:
7 All sheep and cattle,
yes, and the animals of the field,
8 The birds of the sky, the fish of the sea,
and whatever passes through the paths of the seas.
9 Yahweh, our Lord,
how majestic is your name in all the earth!
If even a watch needs a maker, then what about the skies? And if that is true (and it is), then what about us? Brother Daniel Stearsman preached this morning and the title of his sermon was something like: Does God exist? What I had never thought about before was that the DNA that makes us what we are is a language. And since it is obvious that any language has to have intelligence behind it- there must be a designer. I remember Daniel saying that it took scientists thirteen years to decipher it. Someday in the distant future we may actually understand it. Until that day even the most unreasonable among us is forced to confess that it is something immensely complex. And if that is true, then the intelligence behind the DNA language must be equal to the task. The truth is... That from the largest things we can imagine, to that of the smallest, God is there!!!! Believe it, because its true.
