    When we consider how grand the universe is and how small we are in comparison with it we may be moved to express the words found in verses 3 and 4.

    To Amberly on Ps. 8 - about 'reminding yourself not to worry. Our pastor's wife, at the yearly women's retreat, spoke and among other things she brought out that - worry is a lack of faith. That just opened my spiritual eyes and now when worry comes at me - I repeat , "worry is a lack of faith" and over just a very short period of time I have quit worrying. I just give it to God in prayer.
