Sunday night the super moon reached its orbit closest to earth. Yes it did! To many folks around the earth it was magical and so many other things. To me it was nothing but the awesomeness of my God – a gift to enjoy, and both my husband and I watched together. As I viewed the moon, I pondered on EVERYTHING that I was looking at was created by Him. He created the moon, the stars, the dark, and as I stood there again Monday morning at 5:30 looking up at it and snapping another picture, I stood there and thought of how small I am in this big giant universe, and how BIG my God is.
“And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years: And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so. And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also.” Genesis 1:14-16 (KJV)
I am amazed to think how we can ALL take the things for granted that God created for us to enjoy and to savor every day. We walk quickly to our cars, or sit at a ball game, and never even look up, we walk outside, we swim in the evening and never look up at the stars and the moon. It takes a “super moon” to get people to pause and glance up, look up and see the magnificent moon, and yes it is ALWAYS magnificent – full moon, half-moon, quarter moon. Did you stop and glance at the moon this weekend? Did you stop to reflect in awe that God created that moon? If you did not, go out and look at that moon tonight and shoot a picture.
As I stood under that super moon Monday morning, I thanked God for His awesome creation – for that gift to me. I thanked Him for all creation including each of you reading this and me, and I thanked Him for all my blessings – all of which I have been blogging about on MelissaTaylor.Org Blog Hop Thursdays.
