When we traveled through Yellowstone this summer, the scenery overwhelmed me. I stood speechless in front of God’s incomprehensible creation of radiant colors in the translucent water pools and rising ghosts of eerie white steam against extraordinary blue skies.
God’s invisible handwork.
As a nurse, I know full well the intricate marvel of the human body. The multitude of well organized mini-components working inside each of the estimated 100 trillion cells that makes up our bodies.
The Human Cell
The Flu Virus
Our thoughts about the universe – its vastness, its creation and its dying – changed dramatically with the Hubble Telescope images. God’s world is alive, expanding and ever evolving:
Behold the wonder of God
These photographs humble me. I realize once again how little I am and how insignificant my ups and downs really matter in this immense cosmos.
Yet God tells us he loves each of us. He created every one of us. He counts the number of the hairs on our head and has our names inscribed in the palm of his hand. WOW
My inadequate and weak words fail to fully express my awe. My heart leaps with praise – thanking the God of All Wonders – both visible and invisible.

I see my Higher Power at work in your images, producing this beauty for we humans to absorb and cherish, for beauty makes life pleasant and enjoyable.
I tend to find beauty in the macro level–planets, stars, nebulae (like the last two on your blog post), galaxies, collections of galaxies rushing away from us at near-lightspeed. As a college student, I watched closely as space probes imaged Jupiter and its moons, Saturn and its rings, Uranus and Neptune.
Of all the outer planets, I find Neptune frighteningly beautiful. It is so inhospitable to us–the poisonous gasses turned to ice, the freezing atmosphere, the high winds that would shred any visiting spacecraft. I just posted my thoughts about that planet on my own blog.
Please do keep up with your beauty-seeking in God’s handiwork.
Oh, I love those pictures. “Things eyes have not seen….” is ours to behold with Jesus. I can’t imagine anything more beautiful than our worlds, scenery…but there you go, outer space.
Love this post!
Such breathtaking photos. And yours was as good as the google images! I especially love the outer space photos. I saw similar ones at church a couple weeks ago. Just beautiful.
You are so “right on” with this post. Our God is truly and awesome God. I know that is a trite phrase but it so fits sometimes doesn’t it? Pictures are great. Good post. Love Clella
