The Heavens Declare

In the Bible we read much about the beauty of the heavens above us.

Today, I am sharing with you some of those beauties I have been privileged to see.

I am adding the verses from Psalm 19:1-6.


The heavens declare the glory of God, and the sky above proclaims his handiwork.


  Day to day pours out speech, and night to night reveals knowledge.

 There is no speech, nor are there words, whose voice is not heard. Their voice goes out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world. In them he has set a tent for the sun,



which comes out like a bridegroom leaving his chamber, and, like a strong man, runs its course with joy. Its rising is from the end of the heavens, and its circuit to the end of them, and there is nothing hidden from its heat.


The amazing Milky Way is just a small part of the heavens we get to enjoy.


Located near the Milky Way is the Andromeda Galaxy.
Here is what I found on the internet.
By some estimates, the Andromeda Galaxy contains roughly one trillion stars. And it stretches more than 200,000 light-years in diameter. That’s significantly bigger than the Milky Way, which more recent estimates suggest is 150,000 light-years across (though the exact boundary of where either of these galaxies "end" is a bit nebulous). Astronomers are still struggling to get an accurate count, but our galaxy also appears to have roughly a quarter to a half as many stars as Andromeda.


All this is certainly awe inspiring.
To God be the Glory!

Yes, to God be the glory, great things He Hath Done!! He is the One who hung the stars in place, and He knows them ALL by name! He alone has the answers to the astronomers questions...and He will reveal them in His time. Meanwhile, let us just enjoy what He placed in the heavens for us to enjoy!! This was wonderful, and Psalm 19 is my favorite.
