>The Moon Waxes and Wanes

>The moon was a silver crescent, lying just above the treetops, this morning when I woke.

It wasn’t that long ago that it was a full orange globe, rising from the horizon, like a pale pumpkin ready to burst.

I am always amazed at how quickly the moon changes phases. I’m beginning to think that’s part of God’s plan to remind us how quickly life changes. What seems like a dark time in the shadow of the new moon will soon turn into a bright time with a luminous full moon ready to burst with blessings on our heads.

God truly does move in mysterious ways. Our job is trust him, when the night is dark as well as when the moon is bright enough to cast shadows behind us.

Day will dawn, and we will enter the eternal city whose light is the Lord.
