The eyes of Jesus have fathomed the eternal mysteries of the created order; piercing in discernment and judgment, yet inexhaustible in compassion and love. The One who is the Alpha and Omega desires that we yearn to be seen by Him in fellowship, that we may also see what He sees.

NGC 7635: The Bubble Nebula.
Image Credit & Copyright: Larry Van Vleet. NGC 7635, the Bubble Nebula, is being pushed out by the stellar wind of massive central star BD+602522. Next to it is a giant molecular cloud, visible to the right. The cloud is able to contain the expansion of the bubble gas but gets blasted by the hot radiation from the bubble's central star causing it to glow. The Bubble Nebula is part of a much larger complex of stars and shells. The Bubble Nebula is about ten light-years across towards the constellation of the Queen of Aethiopia (Cassiopeia).

Work of Art
Eugène Galien-Laloue (1854–1941) was a French artist of French-Italian parents and was born in Paris on December 11, 1854. He was a populariser of street scenes, usually painted in autumn or winter, of the early 1900s, accurately representing the era in which he lived: a happy, bustling Paris, la Belle Époque, with horse-drawn carriages, trolley cars and its first omnibuses. Galien-Laloue's works are valued not only for their contribution to 20th-century art but for the actual history, which they document. The Paris Arc de Triomphe was painted in 1941. His work can be seen at the Musée des Beaux-Arts, Louvier; Musée des Beaux-Arts, La Rochelle; Mulhouse, France.
