Glory of the Moon

DSC_07321 Corinthians 15:40-42

40 There are both heavenly bodies and earthly bodies, but the glory of the heavenly is one thing, and that of the earthly is another. 41 There is one glory of the sun, and another glory of the moon, and another glory of the stars; indeed, star differs from star in glory.  42 So it is with the resurrection of the dead. What is sown is perishable, what is raised is imperishable.

Sister Moon, Brother Sun

Three houses away, at the end of our block, is a huge park, more of a field.  Not unusual for a town dropped in the middle of geography conducive to growing wheat, barley and canola.  Next to the park is a farmer’s field, sown this year with barley.  We walk/run the dawg there almost daily.  A few evenings ago we were blessed with God’s glory displayed in the heavens.

Psalm 148:3  Praise him, sun and moon; praise him, all you shining stars!

All creatures of our God and King
Lift up your voice and with us sing,
Alleluia! Alleluia!
Thou brother sun with golden beam,
Thou sister moon with softer gleam!
