Panorama

On Friday, Jady and I ventured out to the Queens Museum of Art to see the world's largest scale model of NYC. It took 100 workers building for 3 years to finish this project to present at the 1964 World's Fair, and now it resides in a huge 9000 sq. ft. room for visitors to see. I think the scale is 1 inch = 1,200 inches, or 100 feet. So the Empire State Building is 15 inches... and a person would be the size of the period at the end of this sentence. :)




As cool as it was to see this masterpiece, and to find our apartment and friends' apartments in the city, and to see all the boroughs from a new perspective... I couldn't help but wonder what the real NYC--and the entire earth--must look like to our Lord and Creator. And to think that He didn't need 100 workers for 3 years to create it. Just His Word. In just 6 days.

The earth is the Lord's, and everything in it, the world, and all who live in it; 
for He founded it on the seas and established it on the waters.
(Psalm 24:1-2)
