MUSEUM OF NATURAL HISTORY
We thank the Smithsonian for allowing us to take a few pictures of their collection of gems and minerals this past year.   It is our favorite corner of all the buildings that make up the Smithsonian Museum along both sides of the Mall.  The images below are only a fragment of what you will see at the Museum of Natural History in Washington DC and we hope you will be encouraged to visit next time you are in the area. One can only imagine what words the Lord has spoken - that yet still lay hidden beneath our feet.

 ~ JOB 38 ~
1 Then the LORD addressed Job out of the storm and said:  2 Who is this that obscures divine plans with words of ignorance?  3 Gird up your loins now, like a man;  I will question you, and you tell me the answers!  4 Where were you when I founded the earth?  Tell me, if you have understanding.  5 Who determined its size; do you know?  Who stretched out the measuring line for it? 6 Into what were its pedestals sunk, and who laid the cornerstone,

 7 While the morning stars sang in chorus and all the sons of God shouted for joy? 8 And who shut within doors the sea,  when it burst forth from the womb; 9 When I made the clouds its garment and thick darkness its swaddling bands? 10 When I set limits for it  and fastened the bar of its door, 11 And said: Thus far shall you come but no farther,  and here shall your proud waves be stilled!  12 Have you ever in your lifetime commanded the morning and shown the dawn its place ...

 13 For taking hold of the ends of the earth, till the wicked are shaken from its surface? 14 The earth is changed as is clay by the seal, and dyed as though it were a garment;  15 But from the wicked the light is withheld, and the arm of pride is shattered.  16 Have you entered into the sources of the sea, or walked about in the depths of the abyss?  17 Have the gates of death been shown to you, or have you seen the gates of darkness?  18 Have you comprehended the breadth of the earth?  Tell me, if you know all:

 ... 19 Which is the way to the dwelling place of light, and where is the abode of darkness,  20 That you may take them to their boundaries  and set them on their homeward paths?  21 You know, because you were born before them, and the number of your years is great!  22 Have you entered the storehouse of the snow, and seen the treasury of the hail ... 23 Which I have reserved for times of stress, for the days of war and of battle?  24 Which way to the parting of the winds, whence the east wind spreads over the earth? ...

--- 25 Who has laid out a channel for the downpour and for the thunderstorm a path  26 To bring rain to no man’s land,  the unpeopled wilderness  27 To enrich the waste and desolate ground till the desert blooms with verdure?  28 Has the rain a father;  or who has begotten the drops of dew?  29 Out of whose womb comes the ice, and who gives the hoarfrost its birth in the skies,  30 When the waters lie covered as though with stone that holds captive the surface of the deep? ---

...  31 Have you fitted a curb to the Pleiades, or loosened the bonds of Orion?
32 Can you bring forth the Mazzaroth in their season, or guide the Bear with its train? 33 Do you know the ordinances of the heavens; can you put into effect their plan on the earth? 34 Can you raise your voice among the clouds, or veil yourself in the waters of the storm? 35 Can you send forth the lightnings on their way, or will they say to you, “Here we are”? 37 Who counts the clouds in his wisdom?  Or who tilts the water jars of heaven ...

 38 So that the dust of earth is fused into a mass and its clods made solid?  39 Do you hunt the prey for the lioness or appease the hunger of her cubs,  40 While they crouch in their dens, or lie in wait in the thicket?  36 Who puts wisdom in the heart, and gives the cock its understanding?  41 Who provides nourishment for the ravens when their young ones cry out to God, and they rove abroad without food?
