I keep thinking about what Mike was talking about in one of the podcasts - possibly #31 Progression in the Eternities - that our 5000 years is just one of many and that this is the way an eternity of 'gods' allow their children to attain their fullness. And that this has gone on for billions of years and across the heavens. These are my words, not his, so I hope what I am remembering comes across clearly.
Do you know what else struck me when I watched this? It is the order that is in the galaxies. The Lord works through patterns and whether you are macro (this video) or micro (intracellular) the patterns stay the same.
Wow! I wonder what the vision was like that Abraham experienced. For sure it was even more grand than this. I felt very insignificant to all of the works of God's hands after watching that. When considering all of this, Heavenly Father's great love for each one of us individually is soul piercing.
One day I was doing sealings in the temple and on one name I experienced a phenomenon. It was like everything was in slow motion and i understood every word of the ceremony so clearly but at the same time I was experiencing a vastness of space. Somehow the promises were connected to that never ending space. I don't have words to describe the feeling, but that video reminded me of how vast that felt. I always thank that sister for a small glimpse into eternity.
It's pretty incredible, especially as I am sitting and listening to Sean Hannity and his guests dissect Trump hacking details that are being suppressed by the news. I can't wait until we are on the other side of what's coming.
3 When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and the stars, which thou hast ordained;
4 What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him?
5 For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and hast crowned him with glory and honour.
6 Thou madest him to have dominion over the works of thy hands; thou hast put all things under his feet:
7 All sheep and oxen, yea, and the beasts of the field;
8 The fowl of the air, and the fish of the sea, and whatsoever passeth through the paths of the seas.
9 O Lord our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth!

Wow! That was beautiful and thought provoking.
I've always been fascinated with this perspective of our journey.
