The View From Space

Today the Space Shuttle astronauts return to earth. For the past few days they were impressed at how impressive God's universe is and how blue and perfect the earth is. After spending several days in the awesomeness, a reporter from MSNBC really brought them down to earth by telling them that major warfare had broken out in the MidEast. They had received no such news the entire time they were in space.

The view from space made the earth seem so wonderful. Little did they know that evil in hearts of mankind were at war with one another on what appeared to be God's perfect planet. The view from space only sees the beauty of the planet, not all the suffering.

And the daily news seems so bad that many persons probably also wish for the peace those in space felt for the last few days. Not wonder so many would like to be astronauts.
