    How wonderful and marvelous are thy works Oh God. For He sent forth His spirit and they are created. Ps. 104 30. Creation came into being from where? The sea came into being from where? From where comes the galaxy? This hanging planet earth came into being from where? The air we breathe that gives free oxygen for our sustenance flows from where? You are indeed wonderful and marvelous God.

My people shall dwell in peaceable habitations and sure dwellings. Praise God for His wonderful works to His children.
