When I was in college, I had a professor who would regularly refer to creation as God’s thumbprints/fingerprints. That phrase has stuck with me, it helps me think of God as huge when I think of a mountain range or an ocean as merely His thumbprint.
Last week I was away at Outdoor Education for the 6th graders at the school and we happened to be away from the city, so the night sky was much more visible than we are used to. I was reminded again of God’s thumbprints, of His glory and His immensity looking up into what seems innumerable stars and solar systems.
We had a chance to view Saturn from a telescope and the general “wow” reaction was great to see. The staff at the camp referenced this passage from Psalm 19, which was so appropriate sitting under the sky at night: The heavens declare the glory of God, and the sky above proclaims his handiwork. (Psalm 19:1 ESV) ~Geoff
