With Just One Word

I love this song. It says so much about the character of God...

"With just one word, were the heavens made."

"And God said, "Let there be light," and there was light. 4 God saw that the light was good, and He separated the light from the darkness. 5 God called the light "day," and the darkness he called "night." And there was evening, and there was morning—the first day.

6 And God said, "Let there be an expanse between the waters to separate water from water." 7 So God made the expanse and separated the water under the expanse from the water above it. And it was so. 8 God called the expanse "sky." And there was evening, and there was morning—the second day." Genesis 1: 3-8

I mean, think about it. All God did was speak. He spoke, and there was. The God who holds the stars in his hands also holds my heart. When I look up at night and see the sky filled with stars, I can't help but think of this song. It makes me feel so... small for one, and for number two, incredibly and profoundly blessed. How can the God who created all this care about me? Yet He does, immensely so.

I guess I'm in a mood today. We had a great Easter weekend, spending time with family, and we get to cap off the weekend by having a few days off of school. The kids slept well last night and are just being a happy pair today. I think we're going to have a great day, and at that, I am truly and wonderfully blessed.
