We learned so much during the children’s lesson at the Centre Hall library. The girls made constellations, craters, Jupiter’s red storms, and expeditions around the solar system. Vivienne calculated that if she started her expedition across the solar system on her next birthday, she would be almost 80 years old by the time she got all the way around…traveling 10,000 miles per hour.I’d miss her too much, so for now, she’s planning to stay put.
This is how much she’d weigh on the moon!
I don’t know about you, but I am continually amazed by how huge and complex the universe is. We rattle off facts like, “The sun is 93 million miles away,” knowing that in relation to the entire universe, that’s extremely close. But what in the world is “93 million miles”?! When we stop and think about it, we’ve just gotta stand in awe. Sometimes I wonder if the vastness of space isn’t just a way for God to show us how unique and loved we are. Even though space is infinitely big and contains infinite wonders, God’s eyes are on us. It reminds me of a psalm that King David wrote: “When I look at your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place,what is man that you are mindful of him, and the son of man that you care for him?”
Next Thursday at Centre Hall library, birds of prey will be visiting! Don’t miss it.Enjoy your home,
