Splendor in the Sky
We took a long drive in the country yesterday to spend the afternoon with some good friends down at Brownwood Lake. We shared a simply wonderful meal and finished off the visit with a boat ride out to see the sunset on the water. It was a stunner!
Then shortly after departing for the drive home we saw the other orange globe rise on the horizon. It was not quite a full moon yet, but amazing to see the sun and moon in their fulness so close together in one evening. Somehow, when looking at those huge bodies in the sky, my troubles fall away and nothing remains but awe and praise for the One who put them in place! What Glory!!!
from Psalm 148
Praise the Lord from the heavens,
praise him in the heights above.
Praise him, you highest heavens...
Let them praise the name of the Lord,
for he commanded and they were created.
He set them in place...
His splendor is above the earth and the heavens.
Praise the Lord!
