Moonlight Last Night

Morning Full Moon

“….and dance by the light of the moon.” (from Buffalo Gals)

I’ve mentioned before, one of the perks, of having moved to the country, is the open sky.

I absolutely love it.

There is something about it, that is both awe inspiring and peaceful at the same time.

Last night my husband and I were driving back home, from town.

The fading light of dusk was upon us, and the moon was making its appearance.

A beautiful, perfectly round, golden moon.

I stared at it for the entire drive home. Mesmerized.

I ran inside, grabbed my camera, and tried to capture the essence of the full moon on this cool September evening.

I failed miserably. My camera doesn’t do well in the dark. I was disappointed that all I got was a dot of light.


I wanted more.

I stood in my driveway, looking out over the cornfield, staring at what God had created.

I didn’t want to come inside.

Silently worshiping God …in that moment.

Right there in the driveway, in the evening quiet.

“God made two great lights–the greater light to govern the day and the lesser light to govern the night. He also made the stars.”  Genesis 1:16 NIV
