"And God said, 'Let there be lights in the expanse of the sky to separate the day from the night, and let them serve as signs to mark seasons and days and years. and let them be lights in the expanse of the sky to give light on the earth. And it was so. God made two great lights-- the greater light to govern the day and the lesser light to goven the night. He also made the stars. God set them in the expanse of the sky to give light on the earth, to goven the day and the night, and to separate light from darkness. And God saw that it was good. And there was evening, and there was morning-- the fourth day."' (Genesis 1:14-19)

On Wednesday, I was able to watch portions the moon disappear in the sky. Wednesday night the moon moved into the shadows of the Earth that were cast by the Sun, causing a total lunar eclipse.

We here in Maracaibo were blessed with clear skies to be able to see this event. While I was watching the moon disappear, I was thinking about how God created the moon, the Sun, the stars, the planets, and everything. He created all that there is, great and small. He controls it all. He is the designer of the eclipse. And while He is taking care of controlling the universe, keeping the planets and stars in motion, He still cares about me. One person on this planet amongst the 6 billion living here. He cares about everything that happens in my life. He cares about everyone on this planet, because we are His precious creation. God did not send His Son to die for the sake of the moon or the stars, but for us.
So, the next time you look up and see the Sun, the moon, or the stars, or even when you look around at our planet, remember that as much as God cared to put everything in its place, He cares for you even more.
