Biblical prophecy claims earth will end on September 23. Good to know.

This is why I love photo editing software (Pixlr.com, free). Also, Adobe Spark has a cool site with which you can make professional looking ‘scripture pictures’.

This is why I love second hand stores. Second hand books! My local store often has good quality Christian material. I buy books to give away. Except for a few volumes that will always stay with me, my Christian bookshelves are revolving.

Here’s some reasons why thrift store shopping is cooler than you thought.

If you’re not familiar with NASA’s Astronomy Picture of the Day (APOD), then this might spark your imagination. “Each day a different image or photograph of our fascinating universe is featured, along with a brief explanation written by a professional astronomer.” Photo for September 15, 2017 credit and explanation is below

Explanation: A beautiful conjunction of Venus and Moon, human, sand, and Milky Way is depicted in this night skyscape from planet Earth. The scene is a panorama of 6 photos taken in a moment near the end of a journey. In the foreground, footsteps along the wind-rippled dunes are close to the Huacachina oasis in the southwestern desert of Peru. An engaging perspective on the world at night, the stunning final image was also chosen as a winner in The World at Night’s 2017 International Earth and Sky Photo Contest.

Though the man is standing in a desert in Peru, I think about this being the same universe that Joseph, trapped in a desert well looked up into. That Job, mourning and grieving, cried under. Habakkuk questioning God at night, the disciples, asleep in Gethsemane, with Jesus praying under these same stars. Our God created all those stars…and named them also. What a gracious thing it is, to know Jesus and understand the universe is God’s.
