On looking at Jupiter

Last evening a nearby school had an astronomy day. So a few of us went over to look through the telescopes they had set up. The school also has a giant telescope, one of the ten best on the east coast. Looking through it we saw Saturn, with its rings. We also saw Jupiter and it was so beautiful. I saw four of its moons around it, and even some of its bands. It was such a thrill to be able to get such a good view of it with my own eye, not just through a picture.
So this morning I started to think: imagine what it will be like to see God in heaven! If it's so thrilling just to see part of creation, how much more it will be to see God himself, the Creator. Our minds can't even begin to comprehend God, but in heaven we will "see him as he is." Someting to look forward to!
