    Winnie; "The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament shews his handiwork." What is the glory? God's divinity is His glory! There is no number or measure of His understanding, and His power is infinite. His GLORY is His Supreme Greatness, and His Eternal Existence. All these things we have been robbed of learning because of sin and a darkened heathen mind; but Jesus came to restore us!

    Heavenly Father is Faithful!
    He is more constant than the stars and all His creation.
    His love is never changing.
    He never leaves us or forsakes us.

    Don't be a bully and deny Him.
    He loves You, too.
