Today’s post will be a wee bit short. Pourquoi? After my brother sent the amazing NASA rose galaxies photo for Valentines (I know I shared it the other day, but here it is again in case you missed it.) I must confess to getting distracted today on NASA’s Hubble website. (Blog-writing-time gobbled up with star-gazing, ooops!) The Hubble photographs are so cool(!) The fact that they’re in the public domain because they’re taken by NASA is double cool(!!) (For my overseas buddies NASA is the U.S. space agency.)
Spent so long on the website (hubblesite.org) it’s hard to pick a favorite, but this one of the Mystic Mountain in the Carina nebula is up there..
Think of what it means when we say, “Heavenly Father”… or “the Heavens declare the glory of God..” (Psalm 19:1) Then picture this photo, plus hundreds of others capturing galaxies far, far away from us that look so glorious. (Ok, so some of them are dead stars, but they’re still beautiful.)
“If it can be verified, we don’t need faith… Faith is for that which lies on the other side of reason. Faith is what makes life bearable, with all its tragedies and ambiguities and sudden, startling joys.” Madeleine L’Engle
grace, peace & sudden, startling joys

p.s. Dwight said you can ‘like’ the Hubble Telescope page on Facebook & get regular updates (that’s how he found the celestial rose photo…)
