I certainty thought this was worth sharing! Beyond our sun…it’s a big universe! A high school teacher of mine, Mr. Johnson, forwarded me this in an email 5 years ago.

We all need to take a healthy dose of perspective of just how insignificant our little problems are sometimes and marvel at the glory of God.

Lift up your eyes on high and see! Who has created these? He Who brings out their host by number and calls them all by name; through the greatness of His might and because He is strong in power, not one is missing or lacks anything.
