Chicago! Today we had our very literal introduction to the Windy City. When we left the house it was about 19 but with windchill felt like 4. Met up at the Field Museum & then split up to different places. That whole Museum campus was awesome, such a treat. Our group decided on Adler planetarium, but first a lunch stop at Panozzo’s Italian Market “an Italian-inspired, chef-driven neighborhood market.”Sooooo good. Sorry for no pictures of the sandwiches, but we did add a notch to our ice-cream eating belt.
Then lots of pictures around the city:
I really enjoyed the planetarium. Particularly, I enjoyed their Welcome to the Universe show. As they went through the vastness of our universe and said things like,
“We have discovered galaxies 12 billion light years away [1 light year = 6,000,000,000,000 miles].”
I was just brought back to Zechariah 12:1:
…Thus declares Jehovah, who stretches forth the heavens and lays the foundations of the earth and forms the spirit of man within him…
As vast as the universe is, Jehovah ranks the spirit of man with the same importance. Amazing!
And to finish the photo roll:
