Discovery's Final Launch

Yesterday we went out to Merritt Island to watch the final launch of the shuttle Discovery. It was a beautifully clear afternoon, and the shuttle took off a little before 5:00 p.m. EST. I have always been fascinated with NASA and space. It absolutely boggles my mind how many stars are estimated to be in our solar system, not to mention the BILLIONS of galaxies there are out there. And God knows every star by name! It is even more mind-blowing that someone can look at all those stars and planets and NOT believe in the Creator. How could someone think that it is just chance that caused all of that? The heavens truly show the glory and handiwork of the Almighty God, the Creator, Who SPOKE everything into existence in six literal days. Amazing!
