Godspeed Neil Armstrong

(August 5, 1930 – August 25, 2012). There are very few people of whom you can post a photo that was not taken on this planet.

American Psalms honors the life of Neil Armstrong who passed away today at the age of 82. As a test pilot and NASA Astronaut, Armstrong is the truest of American heroes whose “small step” on to the moon changed life forever in America, and gave us a new perspective of God’s creation. The work of Neil Armstrong and NASA helped us see the beauty of His universe in a way we thought impossible. For the first time, we were able to look down upon the earth from the heavens and see the glory of God’s creation like never before:

The heavens declare the glory of God; 
    the skies proclaim the work of his hands. 
Day after day they pour forth speech;
    night after night they display knowledge. 
There is no speech or language
    where their voice is not heard.
Their voice goes out into all the earth,
    their words to the ends of the world.
(Psalm 19:1-4)

We are grateful for Neil Armstrong’s service to our nation and grieve with his family. Please join American Psalms in praying for his loved ones.

Godspeed, Neil Armstrong.
