I received an email last year showing the difference in size between planets and different stars. At first, I was skeptical so, as I usually do with email, I did some digging around to find out if it was true or not (actually looking to disprove it). However, as I looked, especially on the NASA site, I found that it was true ... that compared to Antares, a huge, giant star, our sun can barely be seen. Antares is 700 times the diameter of our sun.

I was amazed by the reality of my own smallness ... and it occured to me that we are so much like the unborn child ... invisible from Antares' perspective, yet fully alive and full of wonder. Size does not determine worth.
