Reflections on a Super Blue Moon

I'm finding an expansive view of the heavenly realm helps to heal the soul and bring peace to a weary pilgrim.   Once again, I found myself alone in the quiet of the morning, looking up at the Super Blue Moon.  The silence was so deep all I could hear was the sound of my own breathing as I focused the camera. 

Through the lens,  the full moon appeared as a ball of light encircled in blue, pink, yellow, green,  and violet. What was going on?  Was it humidity reflecting off the lens?  Logic tried to figure it out, but my spirit was enjoying the show...and, I had asked the angels for help in getting a good photo.

I was seeing a side of the moon I'd never seen before, her causal body. 

When the camera setting was adjusted from Auto to Manual, the zoom sped across the night sky, bouncing the lens as I held tight to meet up with an old friend.  Now, Bella Luna was up close and personal.  Craters and all. A vision of beauty in the night.

Admiring  her effulgent glow, it's hard to believe the moon has no light to call her own.  Yet all of her radiance is a reflection of our bright, beautiful sun.  

If you're feeling a little compacted these days, stargazing in your backyard is a simple, healing way to break free and behold the bigger picture.  Something wonderful happens as you step outside, and look up.  

When I consider thy heavens,
the work of thy fingers, the moon
and the stars which thou has ordained;
What is man, that thou art mindful of him?

                                          --Psalm 8

Love and peace,
