“The heavens proclaim the glory of God. The skies display his craftsmanship” (Psalm 19:1, NLT).

The Hubble Ultra Deep Field, is an image of a ...I’m not an artist—I can barely draw a straight line—but I love creating beautiful things. My canvasses are the garden and paper. Planting flowers and vegetables and watching them grow gives me me a lot of pleasure. And when I make cards and gifts with paper, glue and a little ribbon, I marvel at the process of creativity and how a few unconnected objects come to life under my hands.

God is an artist and his canvas is the universe. All around us we see his creativity and imagination, but almost nothing inspires us as much as a night sky lit up by the moon and the many brilliant stars. We marvel at the vastness of it and feel small and insignificant in comparison. We wonder what’s out there and wish we could travel beyond our world to explore the amazing planets and nebulae we’ve glimpsed through the Hubble telescope. The glory of the Master Artist is there for all to see and appreciate, by artists and non-artists alike.
