Bite out of the Moon

Did you see it last night? After a disturbing and anxious day which I can only attribute to the mysterious inner working of the peri-menopausal woman, I ended my day with a very clear and calming presence of God. Outside in the clear cold night sky was the slow and bright eclipse of the moon. Moment to moment the progression of the shadow proceeded across the moon. As I would step out in the cold every few minutes the bite out of the moon became larger and larger. I watched and thought to myself how can you not believe in God when you participate in something so wonderful? Thank You Lord for quietly showing up last night and showing me again your splendor and my majesty.

It was absolutely awesome! Thanks for calling and reminding me to take a look. Barry and I both went out several times over the course of about 45 minutes. He was able to get some pictures, too. We were looking through binoculars and I was amazed at the detail of the moon that we were able to see. There was a contrast of reddish/orange of the blocked out portion to a brilliant white of the remaining portion before the total eclipse. It reminded me of what we read in BSF this week about the transfiguration - the brilliant white and His face like the sun shining in brilliance. Our God is awesome and continues to reveal Himself to us through His creation.

The more I do it the more fun it will be I think.
