01.10.09


Calm. Quiet. Still. These are the feelings I get from this photo.
But what's interesting is that the day was anything but...two basketball games for the boys (one team won, one team lost); shopping for clothes and groceries; washing laundry; Girl Scout outing; dad and boys go to watch a college basketball game tonight while daughter and I go to dinner and visit with girlfriends...whew...
Then I realize...no photo!
But the moon...it drew me in. As did the owl calling from a tree in our suburban yard. We've heard him calling over the past few weeks. So I stepped outside into the cool night air and caught this.
Breathe.
Good night, moon.

What a beautiful picture! Even after a busy day, spent with family, the Lord gives you reminders that He is also with you. What a gift the Lord has given you tonight.

Awesome post along with an amazing photo! Plus, you made me think of Goodnight Moon, which was one my oldest's favorite books when she was little!

The moon draws me in too. Just gorgeous!
