we just spent the weekend in kentucky visiting the creation museum. this is an incredible place produced by answers in genesis, and i would highly recommend going and taking your family.
the last thing we did was the planetarium, which was a movie called "created cosmos." it was an amazing presentation of the universe, galaxies, stars, and planets. millions of light years- all created by the voice of God.
the thing that really struck me was the sheer size of all that God created. we, as humans, tend to think that we are so big and that the earth is "it." when i look at the sky, the heavens seem so big to me, yet i can only see the tiniest percentage of it all. we left the planetarium thinking about how small and insignificant we are compared to God's amazing universe.
He chose to make us the CENTER of HIS universe, sending His son to die for US, the tiniest and, for all practical purposes, "invisible" elements. it's completely humbling when you think about how much there is and how, in spite of it all, we matter to Him.
When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers,
The moon and the stars, which You have ordained;
What is man that You take thought of him,
And the son of man that You care for him?
