Full Moon

It is a full moon tonight! The closest that the moon will be to the earth and the largest moon in 2007 -- the Hunter's Moon. As I was driving home from work tonight I could see this beautiful white moon in the sky and it wasn't even dark yet.

I did not take this picture -- it's one I found on the internet. The real moon in my SW WA sky is much more beautiful tonight. It shines it's bright light across the Fall landscape. There is a slight wind tonight and the leaves dance across the big empty field in front of my house highlighted by the moonlight.

As the dark evening progresses I can watch this moon as it moves across the sky. If I look out my back door about 11 PM it will be visible behind my house and shining brightly into the woods and across the back field. If I turn off all the lights in the house I have moonlight dancing across my kitchen floor as the light comes through the skylight.

If you can, go peek out your door tonight. See this beautiful moon that God created just for our pleasure and to light out way on a dark Fall evening.

I sat outside under the maple tree last night and watch the moon pass over the house. It was gorgeous!

I did see the beautiful moon, it soared over my home in all it's glory. I love the names of the moons and the beautiful way they light ou our nights. Wasn't it thoughtful of the good Lord to think of these things :)
