Chapter-a-Day Psalm 8

Nativity I look up at your macro-skies, dark and enormous, your handmade sky-jewelry, Moon and stars mounted in their settings. Then I look at my micro-self and wonder, Why do you bother with us? Why take a second look our way? Psalm 8:3-4 (TM)

I remember seeing a poster in high school made up of several frames. It showed the earth. In the next frame it showed the Earth as a dot in our solar system. The next frame showed our solar system as a dot in the Milky Way. The next frame showed the Milky Way as a dot in the known Universe. You get the idea. We are so small in the expanse of the cosmos that God made. The reality of it gives even more wonder to the truth that "the Word became flesh and dwelt among us."

One thought on “Chapter-a-Day Psalm 8”

  1. 1 God, brilliant Lord, yours is a household name.
    I don’t know if you heard any of Mitt Romney’s speech yesterday, but some of it really inspired me. I’m less interested in his info about his religion, but his historical comments of the US and our future seemed spot on. I have begun to really lean toward Huckabee, but I hope he adds to the discussion that Mitt started. I’m more encouraged right now than I have been in quite a while politically. This country needs to have God’s name as a household name. Not everyone might believe, but they absolutely should know the name and what it stands for. Can we get there again?
