“The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork.”(Psalm 19:1)
“For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and God head.: (Romans1:20)
To God, we give all the glory for all that He has created and what is so obvious to us as Christians is not clearly seen by the world.
Yours in Christ,
