Today is a big day, and in lots of ways it’s a sad day. The last Space Shuttle will rocket into the sky around 11 am this morning, weather permitting.
This is a sad thing for me as I have grown up with the Space Shuttle. This was the topic of my seventh grade science fair project. I had aspirations for a short time that I would fly on one of those things one day. Everytime I see the amount of engineering and the amout of design that is in those ships, I just stand and marvel at the amount of creative design and thoughts and the mind power that was used to build those things and to make them fly around the earth!
So today seems like the end of an era of exploration. But it seems that exploration is something that has been created inside of us. The abilty to dream and to explore and to create.
And it does seem that it all comes back to one creator who gave us the ability to create such incredible devices to explore his marvelous universe.
27 So God created mankind in his own image,
in the image of God he created them;
male and female he created them. Genesis 1:27 New International Version (NIV)
Remember who created you today, and reach for the stars, or maybe the space station! I wonder what we will explore next!
