John Glenn, the first American to orbit Earth, said “To look out at this kind of creation out here and not believe in God is to me impossible.”  His statement mirrors the words of Psalm 19: 1, “The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands.”

The wonder and awe of creation is tremendous.  The wonder and awe of the Creator is beyond measure.
