The Heavens Declare the Glory of God

Hope everyone had a wonderful Eid and Yom Teruah (Day of Trumpets). I think there's something special going on when the Biblical and Muslim calendars correspond. We didn't end up doing a whole lot for either, but we had some good food and a nice day. I didn't end up going to Minneapolis or San Diego, so we didn't have a lot to do here.

UPDATE: Idil gave birth to a healthy baby girl, Zaher, at about 1:45 am, mashallah.
If anyone gets a chance, please pray for my friend Idil, who should be giving birth to a baby girl tonight or tomorrow God-willing.

It is amazing just to contemplate the incredible power that goes into creating a child in the mother's womb. Even beyond our planet, look at all the millions of stars and planets that God created all over the universe. We can't even understand why he created all that, yet he cares about us too.

I think that's a good thought to go to sleep on.

Great video. I love being reminded of God's greatness and as you said how He created all that yet still cares enough to concern Himself with ME and YOU and all of us! Wow!! Thanks for a wonderful Monday morning reminder. And happy holidays to you and your family and friends!

The pictures of the Whirlpool Galaxy are just amazing. And yet the creation of life just takes your breath away...

Zaher is the sweetest little girl, isn't she? And I have remember both of them and Idil in my prayers.

And your right - that He cares for us is a truly good thought to go to sleep on.
