Out Of The Mouths Of Babes

For those who become like little children, the Kingdom of Heaven is theirs.

For the universe is truly amazing. The way the planets flow so harmonically around the sun, not jostling, not bumping into each other. The way just one planet was so perfectly placed so that it could support life; not one step too close, so that all water would be evaporated, and not one step too far, so that all would freeze. The earth is not a place of flat, shapeless terrain where only proteins fit to grow on the backs of crystals reside, but a massive, churning, colorful array of organisms and minerals and elements and LIFE, so finely orchestrated that if even one creature is added or removed, that ecosystem is thrown into chaos.
