The Lights that Blind

I know many of you marvel at God’s creation…for some of you, this is how you worship.  I think for all of us, we tend to have those “aha” moments when we see a piece of creation in its raw beauty. Have you ever pulled your car over to the side of the road to gaze at a newly formed rainbow? Have you ever stared in silence at the massive number of stars in the heavens? Have you ever stopped
