Moon Metaphor

Recently I was the spectator to a magnificent show in the sky.

Canada Day fireworks accompanied by an almost full moon.

I thought it seemed quite a unique scene and the poignancy struck me deeply.

Here we are sitting on the grass our eyes glued to the blaze of fireworks splayed brilliantly,
 over our piece of the hemisphere.

Suddenly my eyes are drawn to the right; and I see the moon shining with grace and modesty in a style all her own.

I am moved by this........ the intense, brilliance of the fireworks , quite in juxtaposition to the gentle,reserved, gracious manner of the moon.

I leave that evening with this profound image in my mind as I ponder the meaning of it's message.

"Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. "

  1. Lucy,
    That must have been a sight to see! I love the moonlight, and it would be so pretty to see the fireworks along with it. The "gentle" quote is beautiful. Enjoy the weekend.

  2. Truly is a profound image. Such beauty!

  3. Beautiful!
    And its true...nothing compares with natural wonders and creation!
    When I read your post, I thought of the "constant" love of God.
