Heaven and Earth

The following was taken from an online blog.

“Oh Lord, our Lord, how majestic is your name throughout the earth. When I behold your heavens, the works of your fingers, the moon and the stars that you set in place, what is man that you have been mindful of him, mortal man that you have taken note of him, that you have made him little less than divine, and adorned him with glory and majesty.” Psalm 8

“I am not a biblical scholar but the glory of the Psalms is their universal accessibility, so you do not need to be a professor to read and love them. These often breathtakingly beautiful poems build on layers of meanings and moods. Psalm 8 is a poem of awe. The writer goes outside and realizes without the benefit of a telescope just how vast the universe is. Overcome by his emotion, the psalmist has an appreciation of what it must be like for our world to be brought into being. The poets awe is twofold. The first part focuses on the creator who made it. That is soon accompanied by the self – consciousness of what it means to be an appreciative human being, someone who has been given the power to respond to our vast universe and its designer.”

“This Lent allow yourself some “Wow” moments. They go beyond language. They give us words for amazement at what God has done.” Author Unknown
