From City Lights to Starry Nights

It's dark out here at night.  It's dark enough to see Orion, the Seven Sisters, and the Big Dipper over me in the black sky.  It's dark enough to see the stars twinkle, even in the light of the full moon.  It's just dark.  And quiet.  "The stars at night, are big and bright, deep in the heart of Texas".


As we hit the hay, it's a bit like heaven out here in the country when we sleep with the windows open.  The night breeze blows across the sheets as we pull them up over us and we snuggle down under the covers.  It's finally cooler outside than inside.  Autumn is finally here.

There's no condensation on the windows in the morning.  Instead of like the last couple of days when we woke up to traffic sounds like honking horns, loud motors, and screetching brakes, we hear the songs of the wren, the Mockingbird and the dove starting the morning off.  The light of the sun just starts to break the horizon shortly after 6am but the sun won't rise for probably another hour.  There's still a bit of a haze over the pasture.  Probably because we got a slow soaking rain over the weekend.  When light comes everything is going to be green and fresh.  It's going to be a beautiful day in the neighborhood.

It just can't get any better than this.

Encourage One Another, continuing the journey on fresh paths.

Psalm 136

Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good.
His love endures forever.
to him who alone does great wonders,

who by his understanding made the heavens,

who made the great lights

the sun to govern the day,

the moon and stars to govern the night;
His love endures forever.
