Reflecting on the Moon...

I have mentioned before that I love the moon, but I have never tried to explain here the profound impression of its beauty on my heart. It is such a significant feature of creation and human history that surely the saints and mystics and theologians have often mined the imagery of its beauty and influence in their thirst to know God.
"When I look at thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and the stars which thou hast established..."
Jennifer Fulwiler has written just such a piece, a beautiful "snapshot" reflection--I only wish it were longer. I have the feeling, reading it, that she's just jotting down some observations to share, and could easily go deeper and say so much more.

Go check it out.
