From “In the Midst of Thee” – volume 2.

To those of you [though] that [who] are feeling unloved and insignificant in this great big world, where love seems to be growing colder, I have some thoughts I would like to share.

Ready? How big is the universe? – estimates are 156 billion light years with some 70 sextillion stars. That is more stars than all the grains of sand on the entire earth.

The sun is 93 million miles away, and over 10 thousand degrees Fahrenheit. For thousands of years the sun and earth have maintained just the right distance apart. Imagine global warming if they ever got any closer!

Our earth weighs 6 sextillion tons. That’s a lot of weight! It is an ultra-complex balanced life system nearly 8,000 miles in diameter, and yet more than 6 billion of us are kept alive by a layer of topsoil only a few feet thick.

The Earth spins around the Sun at 60 thousand miles per hour and on its axis at 500 miles per hour – and yet, somehow, I’m not dizzy.

The full text of this story is contained in “In the Midst of Thee,” – volume 2,” available from Harmony River.com and participating bookstores
