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!
