The Stars Sing
I read this to the boys in our morning Bible study last week: "while the morning stars sang together and all the angels shouted for joy" Job 38:7 - and I asked the boys if the stars really do sing?? Our conclusion was that they must sing if the Bible says so and we thought we should study that sometime. And then today's school lesson was about... the stars singing!! We studied pulsars and their sound waves and we were able to actually listen to a recording of the stars online! We literally sat here at my computer with tears in our eyes as we HEARD the stars praising God! And we are also studying about speech and languages in school right now so we talked about how God created us with voices to communicate and the most important thing we can do with our voice is to praise Him. If we don't, He says the very rocks will cry out in praise to Him... just like the stars! We'll study math and grammar this afternoon, but I have a feeling that this morning's lesson about the stars is the one that will have a lasting impact... at least it will for me!
