Sky Jewelry

"The last sunset of 2014 was a good one" by Rachel Kramer CC BY 2.0

I look up at your macro-skies, dark and enormous,
    your handmade sky-jewelry,
Moon and stars mounted in their settings.
    Then I look at my micro-self and wonder,
Why do you bother with us?
    Why take a second look our way?
Yet we’ve so narrowly missed being gods,
    bright with Eden’s dawn light.
You put us in charge of your handcrafted world,
    repeated to us your Genesis-charge,
Made us lords of sheep and cattle,
    even animals out in the wild,
Birds flying and fish swimming,
    whales singing in the ocean deeps.
God, brilliant Lord,
    your name echoes around the world.
Psalm 8:3-9  MSG

Being a jewelry-maker, I love the way "The Message" words this often-read passage.  I can see the necklace in this photo that the transcriber has interpreted...
God, the Great Sky-Jeweler.
