Seeing the Creator in the Wonders of Our Cosmos

In Star Struck, David Bradstreet shares the following examples of the wonder of God's creation:

When the summer Sun is beating down, do you ever wish you could store some of that heat in a jar until wintertime? Perhaps that's one of the reasons God created the oceans, which cover three-fourths of the surface of our planet at an average depth of more than two miles. The oceans help regulate our planet's temperatures, turning dramatic highs and lows into averages that are just right for us.
Like oxygen, liquid water is essential to life. And while almost every other planet we've studied lacks flowing liquid water, our world is awash in the stuff, some 352, 670,000,000,000,000,000 gallons, according to the National Ocean Service.
And like convection—the process God uses to circulate our air and keep it fresh—our planet's water cycle constantly circulates our water, which evaporates from the ocean, rains down on the land, and then flows back to the ocean to do it all over again.
