Joe Versus the Volcano

Did you see it? For the past two nights - the moon?

Last night it came out big, orange and moved so gracefully over the sky. Alone, the house completely dark, I was drawn to my window - just to sit there and gaze in amazement.

What a Father.

To put something up there, so far away, so controlled, so dang gone bright.

And then it began.......


What a Father.


What a Father.


What a Father.

And then - Prayers

What a Father.

My heart just opened up, under the spell (no not of the moon) of Him. I sat there unable to pry my eyes off that ole moon. I can see how some could worship that giant piece of rock. I can't understand it. How can you look and not see. Someone so much bigger and brighter and in total control. The one who made that moon.

What a Father.

And I thought about in the movie "Joe Versus the Volcano", when he is on a raft in the ocean and the moon comes up and it almost covers the whole sky, being so big. I thought about how much I would like to witness something like that. I thought about that is how I feel about my Father. I desire to have Him become bigger in my "sky" of life, to completely cover it all. To be so big I can not see anything else but Him.

And I realized, He can. Only if I allow Him to.

What a Daddy.

I like this. It's amazing to me how God uses his creation to bring us to praise him. The heavens declare his handiwork -- and the fool has said in his heart, 'there is no God'. They seem to go hand in hand, don't they? I love when God speaks to me through nature.
