This week I’m re-running a few posts from the past to stimulate your appetite for God’s creation.
This photo is by my friend Tim Rainey who knows I love the sight of the moon.
I just took Charles to work. It is about 32 degrees outside and clear, a beautiful morning. The sun is about to rise. In the west a full moon sets in the sky, a ring of haze around it, brilliantly reflecting the sun’s light. No wonder the Psalmist called the moon “…my faithful witness in the sky,” (Psalm 89:37) it has a special beauty this morning. It is beautiful and it is faithful, predictably obedient to the ordinances of God. I find myself praying; “Lord may I reflect your light into my dark world with a similar beauty.” “May the beauty of the Lord, my God be upon me – ”
Just as I wrote this into my journal I received an e-mail from my dear friend Paul Gardner who directs Camp Barakel. The Camp is clustered around a clear lake in the Huron National Forrest in the northern lower peninsula of Michigan:
Last night as I went home the moon hung low in the eastern sky. This morning as I came in it was dipping low in the western sky, and the air was not blowing– so the fog hung in the bare trees. What a great commute I have!
