The Moon

I really don't have the lens to take perfect shots of the moon, but these didn't turn out so bad. It's a beautiful night here and it feel so nice out; through the photos do not do the moon justice. I'm reminded of evenings when I was younger visiting with our Aunt Margaret and Uncle Vance. We'd set out at their place and the sound of the night critters like crickets I so love to hear. The moon is so wonderful to see in all its fullness.
The moon just isn't something of beauty - and it not is the sky by chance. God created everything for a reason even the moon. Below is just one site of interesting things. http://home.hiwaay.net/~krcool/Astro/moon/moontides/
The moon is up there shining bright;
For all the world to see.
Looking down on you and me;
For all eternity.
A wonder.

And God made the two great lights, the greater light to govern the day, and the lesser light to govern the night; He made the stars also. Genesis 1:16

Thank you Eileen for reminding me and sending along the verse. I love the Lord and I've always been in awe of His creation, but the more time I spend with Him I'm always amazed at His love.

Thanks for sharing your night sky with us! The pictures came out wonderful! I enjoy going outside during the evening and listening to the night sounds, whether it be crickets, birds singing (some do at night) or the howl of a coyote off in the distance. Genesis 1:16

Have a nice day! ~Eileen

Hi Vicky,
Love your photos of the moon, the same moon I look up at every night too - isn't that an amazing thought!
You look great in your new pic you are using with your husband - you haven't changed at all.
Hope you have a lovely day. :)
