An Aurora Borealis: Better Than Testimony Meeting

Maybe its because I’m surrounded by artifice. Maybe its because I was up at 3am meeting a deadline hopped up on cough syrup. Either way, this image on the front page of the New York Times brought a tear to my eye.

I thought of Alma’s words: all things denote there is a God. The earth is one of His greatest witnesses. Lets take care of it.

  2. CJ – Thanks for the picture and for imploring us to be responsible. I think I’ve re-printed this before but it has always been a favorite scripture:

    What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him?
    For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and hast crowned him with glory and honour.
    Thou madest him to have dominion over the works of thy hands; thou hast put all things under his feet Psalms 8:4-6
    What an awesome blessing. What an awesome responsibility.

  6. I had a moment flying between DC and SLC where I saw the aurora borealis. Simply mesmorizing.

  8. Ahh, but are tourists “real people?”
