A surprise for our eyes
Thursday night, we were coming home from a friend's house, and I caught a glimpse of the moon behind some trees. It was massive and a deep orange color. It caught me off guard and made me gasp. I told the girls to keep watching as we drove down the road... waiting for another break in the trees.
After several minutes, there was finally a clearing and there it was! Abby came up out of her seat and exclaimed:
"Mommy! Jesus did that for us! It's a surprise for our eyes!!! Ohhhhh.... Dear Lord, thank you so much for the big orange moon! Amen!"
I thought I was going to start bawling. Her genuine excitement and appreciation for the creator's creation moved me so much... it was a beautiful moment and has made a very special memory.
Our Father gives us surprises for our eyes every day... we simply have to look for them, recognize them, and appreciate them! Have a blessed weekend.
