My God, it's full of galaxies...

"In the beginning God created..." Genesis 1:1
and it is all just so absolutely magnificent and awe inspiring. Who can contain their childlike thrills when discovery comes out to greet the explorer? Peoples,lands, mountains, waters, skies and heavens...even Vit.C chrystals :-)... all this calling us out,to worship, Him! All-A-Glow from Toronto,Ontario. Mary-Lou.
