N is for…

This Week’s Memory Verse: N is for…
“Night will be no more. They will need no light of lamp or sun, for the Lord God will be their light, and they will reign forever and ever.” -Revelation 22:5

While we were studying relatively small and unassuming space rocks this week Astronomers were being wowed by the discovery of the largest known structure in the universe now dubbed the “Huge Large Quasar Group.” It’s so big that scientists say according to the Cosmological Principle it shouldn’t even exist. This particular cluster of 73 Quasars is some 4 billion light years across. Compare that to the distance from our galaxy, The Milky Way, to our nearest neighbor, The Andromeda Galaxy, which is a mere 2.5 million light years away. Gives us even more reason to sing the following hymn with gusto!

Hymn of the Week: “O Worship the King” (Robert Grant)

O Worship the King, all glorious above,
O gratefully sing His power and His love;
Our Shield and Defender, the Ancient of Days,
Pavilioned in splendor and girded with praise.

O tell of His might, O sing of His grace,
Whose robe is the light, whose canopy space.
His chariots of wrath the deep thunder clouds form,
And dark is His path on the wings of the storm.

Thy bountiful care what tongue can recite?
It breathes in the air, it shines in the light;
It streams from the hills, it descends to the plain,
And sweetly distills in the dew and the rain.

Frail children of dust, and feeble as frail,
In Thee do we trust, nor find Thee to fail;
Thy mercies how tender! how firm to the end!
Our Maker, Defender, Redeemer and Friend.

  1. Hi Julie!

    Thanks for the incredible picture and for focusing our attention on our truly awesome Father. This reminder fills my heart with adoration, awe, honor, reverence, and worship. Oh what an amazing thought that THIS Creator would call US His children– unfathomable, but oh, so true. Thanks again for sharing. In light fashion, I wondered if I might have your permission to share this photo on my “Abba’s World” Pinterest board? Keep up the good work, my friend! “Those who are wise will shine like the brightness of the heavens, and those who lead many to righteousness like the stars forever and ever.” ( Daniel 12:3)

    Psalm 115:15 is my prayer for you and your precious family today,
    Colleen

    • Thank you so much for the sweet scripture prayer. You are always welcome to share anything from this blog, including the Quasar picture which you can currently find all over the internet since it is a pretty hot topic among scientists right now. Love to you and yours!
