A Ninth Planet

 

I was really disappointed when Pluto got kicked was demoted.  However, now there is the possibility of a new ninth planet bigger and farther out than poor Pluto.  With a possible orbit that takes 10,000 – 20,000 earth years.

As we read Psalm 19: 1-6, it presents an awe filled way at looking at and listening to the universe.  One day informs the new day of the wonders of the Lord and what has taken place on the earth, night does the same for the next night.  But the vault of the heavens is also communicating with us, with wordless messages.  The messenger of the heavens is the sun, which arises out of the darkness like a newlywed man emerging out of his marriage tent.  Like a champion the sun races across the sky and nothing escapes it hot notice.  The first six verses of the psalm invite us to join the universe in glorifying the Lord.

The heavens tell out the glory of God,

Heavens vault makes known his handiwork.

One day speaks to another,

Night to night imparts knowledge,

And this without speech or language or sound of any voice.

Their sign shines forth on all the earth,

Their message to the ends of the world.

In the heavens an abode is fixed for the sun,

Which comes out like a bridegroom

From the bridal chamber,

Rejoicing like a strong man to run his course.

Its rising is at one end of the heavens,

Its circuit reaches from end to the other,

And nothing is hidden from its heat.

 

However, we also have the awesome word of the Lord with its never failing instruction, making the simple wise and bringing joy to the heart and as the sun lights our way during the day, so God’s word lights our eyes to see the wonders of the Lord.  Psalm 19:7-9
