Even though I woke up at 3:45am, I’ve not had a chance to sit down and write the post I intended to today. Now I’m in bed and looking out at the moon that looks like a cow should be jumping over it, just like in the children’s classic, Goodnight Moon. It sits whimsically low in the sky and is crescent shaped, with a hazy golden tint. I hope you got to see it tonight too, and that it reminded you of Psalm 19:
The heavens declare the glory of God;
the skies proclaim the work of his hands.
Day after day they pour forth speech;
night after night they reveal knowledge.
They have no speech, they use no words;
no sound is heard from them.
Yet their voice goes out into all the earth,
their words to the ends of the world.
May we always have eyes to see the heavens declaring the glory of God, and may we pray for clear skies to see the Christmas Star on the 21st.
But as for today, “Goodnight stars, goodnight air, goodnight noises everywhere.”
