And I made another little blue X on the back of my hands, lest I forget

Let all the earth fear the LORD; let all who dwell in the world stand in awe of Him. Psalm 33:8
There is this video that I used to show in science class: Powers of Ten. And in some ways, it is my favorite video in all of the world, because it brings awe to my rather jaded weary soul.We can't have too much awe.

You hem me in, behind and before,
    and lay your hand upon me.
Such knowledge is too wonderful for me;
    it is high; I cannot attain it.
Where shall I go from your Spirit?
    Or where shall I flee from your presence?
If I ascend to heaven, you are there!
    If I make my bed in Sheol, you are there! 
If I take the wings of the morning
    and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea,
even there your hand shall lead me,
    and your right hand shall hold me.
If I say, “Surely the darkness shall cover me,
    and the light about me be night,”
even the darkness is not dark to you;
    the night is bright as the day,
    for darkness is as light with you.

Stand back and you will be amazed.
