Living in the country will always have some pros and cons. After spending part of my day in Honolulu, then hauling groceries home from Costco today, the drive back to our house seemed very long.
But one thing that seems to make it all worthwhile is the view from our front lanai. Looking out over the North Shore as the sun sets has to be one of the best parts of each day.
And on a cloudless night, the country sky is spectacular. There are really no lights anywhere around us to spoil the view.
This is how the sky looked as we finished dinner tonight. It’s so awesome to see the stars shining before the sun even sets. Orion’s Belt was the first thing we saw tonight.
Then Dave spent some time outside with the camera, so that he could capture the Big Dipper right in our back yard..Through the palm trees. See it?
Something about looking at a star-filled sky seems to put things in perspective for me:
Me. Our World. The Universe. Creator God.
Small, big, bigger, Biggest.
And I’m blown away as I consider that the Creator of it all cares for the smallest of all in me.
And then I have to stop thinking because my brain hurts.
But I wanted to share this with you.
From our little star-lit home in the country…
