Beauty in the World

Tonight, as I returning from an evening meeting at the church, I got out of my car and looked up. There above me was an amazing moon, bright and beautiful. Clouds were so thick around it I almost felt I could reach and cup them in my hand as I might bubbles in a bathtub. Truly, it was a sight to behold. Images like that are why I ever bought a high quality camera. One day, maybe I'll get lucky and be able to actually manage taking a picture of such an amazing event.

I do think, though, that I was touched by the moment. The meeting I had just left was so filled with the Spirit, I am still feeling a bit of a glow from it. I listened to amazing men teach us principles, and I felt strengthened. Our little branch of the church here has been struggling for a while to maintain its attendance let alone grow. Here lately, though, we have felt a turn take place. Almost like a new moon signals a new time has come. Perhaps that was why the moon struck me so powerfully tonight. Whatever the case, I am thankful for such experiences, and I do my best to write them down when I am still in the midst of them. I hope I have captured this one tonight.

We had a great moon here tonight as well. Must be a sign of something. :)

Ellie noticed the one tonight, so I pointed out my post. Yes, indeed it might be a sign.
