Some things are worth losing sleep over. Norwegian landscape photographer Terje Sorgjerd trekked to the highest mountain in Spain (El Teide), camped outside without a tent or sleeping bag, and slept only 10 hours over the seven days it took to capture this breathtaking time-lapse footage of the Milky Way galaxy. Sprawled out over the lush landscape, the stars seemed close enough to reach out and touch. A tribute to the majesty and beauty of both heaven and Earth.

    Psalm 19:1, "The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands." God, you do GREAT and wondrous works! Thank you Jesus for reminding me how mightily creative you are, and even as you run this entire universe and creating new stars throughout the cosmos, you still have time for me and saved me from my sins by accepting you as my Lord and Savior. I am blessed! Thank you again!
