Seen from the moon, the “earth rise” makes us deeply aware
that we are already in the heavens—living on a sparkling jewel
in the midst of an ocean of glittering gems: planets, stars,
and galaxies reaching into the far off places of space and
time in beauty and wonder. We are awe struck with the splendor
and mystery of it all as we swing around and around in the
surround of the great Godly glory.
