You Won't See This Again For Forty-Two Years


Tonight, we had the opportunity to go further out in the country...away from the city lights to view the conjunction of the crescent moon, Jupiter and Venus. We were able to view the moon and Jupiter (as well as the twin stars and a nebula) through a telescope.


What a spectacular picture of God's incomprehensible greatness! As I viewed the innumerable dots of light in the vast universe, I pondered with the Psalmist, "What is man that thou art mindful of him?"

I praise God that He allows us to enjoy sights like these. I am grateful that this great and mighty God saw my need and provided a way of salvation for me.

It was spectacular. We saw it as we waiting for our Christmas parade to begin.

I saw this too and thought that it had some significance but was way to busy covering up the plants and being very cold. Glad you posted so I know what I was seeing.

WOW! Glad I have you to show me these things! By the way, how much trouble would it be to "make me Christmas"???

Hey, Leah, have you seen the movie The Star of Bethlehem? You've got to check it out... I was skeptical of it at first but the man is very humble and honest and well... it's just intriguing.

It's super cheap on their website: http://www.bethlehemstar.net/
