NASA just released new pictures of the "Blue Marble". The first picture's high definition, is amazing. Compare it with the second picture, taken in 1972. The first's hd is so amazing, that if you look close enough in the N.E. Florida area, you can see me waving. :wave:

If they had a social gospel in the days of the prodigal son, somebody would have given him a bed and a sandwich and he never would have gone home.

Very surreal.
Why no pictures of Australia. :x
1Tim1:15-17
Here is a trustworthy saying that deserves full acceptance: Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners of whom I am the worst. But for that very reason I was shown mercy so that in me, the worst of sinners, Christ Jesus might display his immense patience as an example for those who would believe in him and receive eternal life. Now to the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only God, be honor and glory for ever and ever.Amen.

I hardly call seeing a miniscule portion of the west coast that is barely visible on the right hand side a picture. :roll:
