She has an amazingly beautiful, soothing singing voice. The music was absolutely mesmerizing.
Our next trip was to the Creation Museum in KY. The Creation Museum has a huge building and grounds, which was paid for by contributions, as noted by Ken Ham, the founder, “Because the museum project will be built as donations come in, it’s not possible to give a specific timeline for its completion,” declared Ken Ham. “It will take many months of planning and securing the necessary building permits, but my hope is that God will lead His people to support the museum. Perhaps by the fall of 2001, this facility will be open to the public.” Image that! Raising money BEFORE building. WOW! What a concept! Sorry, little tangent there. Back to the trip -we rode a charted bus with 36 other passengers, none of whom we had met before. The ride was exciting at first, since none of us have ever ridden a chartered bus. The bus was huge and very nice. The trip was a bit long, but worth the travel. We stayed at a very nice hotel, Comfort Suites, or something like that, Friday night. Saturday morning we toured the museum. It was a wonderful museum. The Word of God displayed EVERYWHERE. The creation account being explained and proven through the Bible, displayed in various shapes and forms. We started the tour by watching a movie in the planetarium. The movie explained our place in the universe, as we know it today. It was very humbling to see just how small we are in the vast scheme of things. My son said after the show, "So, we're like a Who speck?". I said, "Well, yes!". Have you heard of the movie/story "Horton Hears a Who"? It's a great movie. Anyway, after the planetarium we began our tour. The displays were top of the line. There was no expense spared in this museum. The models were extremely life-like and all the special effects amazing. I was also impressed with how smoothly everything went. Even the bathrooms were spotless! There was a lot to see and take in, so I'm sure we missed out on some things since we only had the one day to tour the place. What we did see and take in was amazing. The food was delicious and not extremely over-priced like most amuzement parks/museums. Everyone was polite and thoughtful, which is a good thing assuming that most everyone who was there was a Christian. I don't really know what more to add, except a few photos, so here you go. If you have any questions, leave it in a comment and I'll try to answer.
Display of archeological dig. Discusses the perspective of a Christian and an athesist using the same facts but different views.
It was a great, but exhausting day. We didn't leave the museum until after 4:00 p.m. Our arrival at home was near midnight, and we still had to go pick up Dixie, our dog, from my brother's house. We didn't go to church today, but that's OK. We had a Bible study at home, which was very good and challenging. We are studying the book of Revelation and we are really enjoying that. We've all been challenged about forgetting our first love - but that's a topic for a different post.
*I should note that Haley took most of the pictures.
