Good evening Kathy. We’ve had a mild day here today. I think 84 was the high at our house. Scattered showers all day. I wanted mow the lawn today, but it has been too damp. Pup and cats loved the cooler weather.

Space Music

July 9, 2013

One of NASA’s observatories has discovered a giant black hole that hums. Located in the Perseus cluster of galaxies about 250 million light years from Earth, the black hole vibrates at the frequency of a B flat. But it is too low a pitch to be picked up by the human ear. Scientific instruments have placed the note at 57 octaves below middle C on a piano.

The idea of music and heavenly bodies is not new. In fact, when God revealed Himself to Job, He asked: “Where were you when I laid the foundations of the earth? . . . When the morning stars sang together, and all the sons of God shouted for joy?” (Job 38:4,7). We are told that at the creation of our marvelous universe, songs of praise and shouts of joy resounded to God’s glory.

A wonderful hymn by St. Francis of Assisi captures the awe and worship we feel when beholding the radiant sun by day or the star-studded sky at night.

All creatures of our God and King,
Lift up your voice and with us sing Alleluia, Alleluia!
Thou burning sun with golden beam,
Thou silver moon with softer gleam:
O praise Him, O praise Him!
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!

“The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament shows His handiwork” (Ps. 19:1).

Let’s praise the One who made such beauty for us to enjoy!

Hymn by St. Francis of Assisi, translated by William H. Draper. © 1968 Singspiration
The beauty of creation gives us reasons to sing God’s praise.

Read: Job 38:1-7

Who laid [earth’s] cornerstone, when the morning stars sang together, and all the sons of God shouted for joy? —Job 38:6-7
Bible in a Year:
Job 38-40; Acts 16:1-21

The heat has backed off a little here as well - we didn't break 90 - but still high humidity. We had light rain in the early afternoon that just turned the city into a steam bath.

I don't do heat well - have not since 'Nam - I was a heat casualty there - if we hadn't come upon a little stream where I could immerse myself I probably would have been a goner. Amazing how much heat builds up in your body walking uphill under triple canopy rain forest!

I’m sure glad you found that stream! Wouldn’t want to have never met you!

Our humidity has been higher than usual, but it’s nothing like y’all experience!

I’m just thankful it’s under 100. :)
