Some Thoughts about the Sun

When I squint at the sun, I see a miracle. Five billion years ago, hydrogen atoms came together to make the sun, and every second it transforms four million tons of itself into light. As it pours out energy, it enables the salmon to swim up streams near my house, the towhees to sing in my hedge, and the chard to grow in my garden, nourish me, and give me strength. Molecules energized by the sun course through my blood and enable me to think and do my work. The sun is fueling this blog and, I hope, helping me reflect some of the light on the beautiful, interesting things in the world.

    Indeed you are reflecting the light of this beautiful world in your blog. This is a refreshing blog and I look forward to your postings. Indeed the sun affects us in ways too numberous to mention. An aquaintance recounted to me that her blind friend had moved to a latitude far to the north and missed the wamth of the sun on her skin. I am grateful for your musings on this incredible world and look forward to your blog.

    I hope that during the longest stretch of rainy, gloomy weather you experience this winter, we can come visit to enjoy time with you, our sunny friend.

    Speaking of the sun, I would recommend the website http://www.spaceweather.com

    There you can see the awesome power and beauty of our star as it lives and breathes and fumes day by day. The site changes daily with the solar weather and gives a flowing glimpse of God’s grandeur.
