    Ps 104: 2,3 Who stretchest out the heavens like a curtain,...who maketh the clouds his chariot, who walketh upon the wings of the wind.
    These verses are some of the very most beautiful in the entire bible. The whole chapter is wonderful. The last verse is interesting to dream about as well.

    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.
