When you wish upon a Star.....

Everyday, we hear about new discoveries in the solar system. Astronomers are excited about seeing for the first time many earth-like planets in the solar system.

Twenty-first century technology is allowing a new peep into the ancient heavens;
images that Galileo and Copernicus couldn't fathom.

An Austrian astronomer recently estimated the number of stars
to be approximately 70 sextillion. 70,000,000,000,000,000,000,000.
More than the grains of sand on Planet Earth.

They have been there since the fourth day.
They have been in their place, waiting, serving their purpose.

Twinkle, twinkle little star.
Up above the world so high, like a diamond in the sky.

The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands.
Psalm 19:1
