The same stuff that is so carefully designed by the Maker is the very material we too are made of. Matter, carbon that our bodies are based on, all is former stars from primordial and very ancient explosions.
"When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place, what is man that you are mindful of him, the son of man that you care for him? You made him a little lower than the heavenly beings and crowned him with glory and honor. You made him ruler over the works of your hands; you put everything under his feet."
The care in making the grand web of the galactic structures used by the Lord of Hosts, is nothing compared to His Love and care in making each one of us. Unique, beautiful, irreplaceable we each are. Every human being is beautiful and wonderful with talents, traits and characteristics unique in the physical world but also in the spiritual.
Besides the atomic and astrophysical wonder of our bodies and all other living things on this beautiful planet, the Lord has given us what He has given no other living creature: His Image and Likeness.
We are born with His Image but we have to work at perfecting His Likeness in us. We have to work at being imitators of God the way children imitate their physical parents.
The wonders of Creation, as seen through space telescopes and earth bound observatories, underground super conductors, and atomic microscopes is awesome and wonderful. Yet the picture is incomplete. We have in these wonders the finger prints of the Maker but we do not find His face therein. His Person can not be discovered. His Face can only be revealed by Him, God Himself to us. This is what He did by becoming a Man among us. He became one of us. As the hymns of every morning in the Orthodox Church say:
Behold the work of HIS hands...
