"Nor the moon by night"

Yes, this is what the moon looked like last night over our house! It was as bright as the sun and the clouds reflected the beauty!
I couldn’t help but remember the chapter in Psalms (121) where it says,
‘The Lord will watch over you, the Lord is the shade at your right hand. The sun will not harm you by day nor the moon by night.”
Right now, I dread nighttime. I never know how much pain Nick will be in. I never know if Nick or I will be able to sleep all the way through the night. Sometimes I wake up and cannot sleep for five minutes, other times hours, and then sometimes……..I don’t wake up til morning! I never know. But I do know that as evening approaches and the darkness comes, I start to feel different than I did during the day.
But last night as I drove to get a snack for the sleepover Olivia was at, I saw the moon and I was reminded that God is with me day and night. I called a friend to have her look at the beautiful moon, too. Later she called and told me to go out and look at the light reflecting on the clouds. As I did I was thinking, “That is just a reflection of the sun’s light,but it is so bright!!” In a few minutes my friend called and she was thinking the same thing! Then she went on to say that it was the first time she had realized that we are never really without the sun……..which of course is true of God’s Son as well! What a beautiful analogy!
So, as I sit here reflecting on last night’s God-moment, I am thankful once again for a Creator who speaks through day-to-day events as simple as the moon hanging in the sky.
Oh, I love you all so much! Look for Him as you live each day. He is longing to speak to you!

  1. yeah, God is always with us. Truly … He is the only answer to our life’s problems. When i do not know what to do, i just pray. pray. and pray. that’s the only way to get to God.

  2. Just the other night my husband and I were talking to our kids telling them that the moon has no light of its own. It is the sun reflecting on it!

    I am so excited to walk with you this next week in prayer. Hope fills the air doesn’t it… just to wait and see what the Lord will do!

    Love, Cheri

  3. Tammy, I was directed to your blog through my daughter’s blog.(http://lifewithspirit.blogspot.com/) She and her husband were students at KCC in the ’90’s. She and her husband are now doing student ministery in one of our churches in Ohio. I’ve never heard such passion in her writing as today when she is writing about your family and other families who suffer from the heartache of cancer. We serve an awesome physician – and I will join you in the march around Jericho! On another note:

    Tammy, may I add your blogpage to our church’s encouragement blog? I’m always looking for ways that we as the body of Christ can encourage others. You can reach me at danielc@nationwide.com or encouragemenew@aol.com with your answer. Peace be with you in these days. And, by the way, I love the music you have attached to your blog. Very uplifting! Cindy Daniels, Beechwold Christian Church, Columbus, Ohio.
