The Heavens Declare...


For the last couple of days, my heart has been in deep places - none of which I regret, but deep, just the same. Last evening, I needed to go to the garage, and as is my habit (and joy) I looked up at the sky.
It was dusk - a band of muted gold on the horizon that bled into the royal blues of the robe of Lady Night. There were only two heavenly bodies visible, only two - a star and the moon. It was so powerful. In the stillness, when all of creation is folding itself inward to quiet and rest, it seemed as tho' these two jewels were singing at the top of their created existance,
"ALL IS WELL..." and my heart knows that it is.
God holds it all in His tender, loving, all powerful hands. What do I have to be concerned about? The answer is 'nothing' - other than being alert so as not to miss seeing Him at work and to praise Him with all my heart for it?
Silence that sings. Dramatic simplicity. Yes, all is well...

I saw it too.. The Crescent Moon and Venus... So seldom we see that picture. It too makes me feel good when looking up at the sky.. God is in control!

Thanks for posting this beautiful picture, Diane.

God is in control, but we have a hard time remembering that when we need to remember it the most. He is with us, and sometimes He shows us in unusual ways.
