Getting My Nerd On at the Smithsonian

On our trip of a lifetime, I was thrilled to visit the Smithsonian's collection of gems and minerals.  The kids went through once and then left me for an extended time of gazing in wonderment and awe and the awesome handiwork of God!

When I look at minerals, I am always in awe at how God knit the foundations of the earth together.  Did you know that all minerals fall into one of six crystal groups - ORDERLY groups.  No presence of chaos there!
