The Infinite holding Infinity

Space has always been a wonder for me… both in the realm of its depth in beauty and its mystery.  Space is described in the dictionary as a region beyond earth’s atmosphere containing other planets, stars and galaxies.  It is also known as the heavens and skies or the cosmos in simple description.   In its complexity, there are solar systems within the universe, using such terminology as aerospace, interplanetary, interstellar and intergalactic, to name a few.  There is another word called infinite  which aptly describes such an endless frontier of the unknown.  Today’s space technology has allowed us glimpses into such vastness through the Hubble telescope and NASA explorations. 

Improved technology in astronomy has allowed photographs showing breath-taking beauty in colored dimensions caused by cosmic energy, gases, gravitational fields, celestial planets, galaxies, not to mention our own stellar solar system.  The earth seen from space is like a beautiful blue and white marble, splendid in suspended aura,  pulsing with life and host to creation in many forms.

Space science is very busy trying to find the origin of the universe and to make conclusions as to where it all began and the “ending” of space.  Our Creator, the Father of Lights, is the beginning and the end... the Alpha and Omega.  I will say for Science, that the further it advances in discoveries, the more compatible findings are which line up with scripture written long ago. As an example;  there is a whole spectrum of ethereal sounds recorded by NASA.  Since the vacuum of space cannot transmit audible sounds, scientists have captured radio emissions and electromagnetic waves from other planets and stars and translated them into sound.   

Psalm 119 describes this dynamic.
The heavens declare the glory of God;
the skies proclaim the work of his hands.
Day after day they pour forth speech;
night after night they reveal knowledge.
They have no speech, they use no words;
no sound is heard from them.
Yet their voice goes out into all the earth,
their words to the ends of the world. (NIV)

I have a collection of images which I have saved from internet articles on space, planets, etc. provided by the Hubble Telescope and NASA satellites.  I chose a few and put them together in a photo slide show to emphasize how Great our God is.  The heavens truly are filled with His Glory.....

You can really be a star gazer if you see this in the enlarged view format.  Click on escape when finished.
The PhotoShow is entitled "The Star" and also can be viewed at this link:


In Genesis 1, one of God’s first spoken commands was…”Let there be Light” and Light was formed and God saw that it (the Light) was good.  He began separating the Light from darkness and as it was in the beginning, God is still in the business today of separating Light from dark... which brings us to Christmas.

  Christ was born in the first century, yet He belongs to all centuries.
He was born a Jew, yet He belongs to all races.
He was born in Bethlehem, yet He belongs to all countries...
George W. Truett

Christmas celebrates a Divine Awakening, a saving grace, when penetrating Light enters mankind in the form of a baby boy birthed in Bethlehem - to a dying and tortured man hanging on the cross at Golgotha - to emerge in resurrection power out of a Jerusalem tomb as Jesus, the Light of the World.
