Stormy Night Conjunction

We had delightful day in fellowship together that was interspersed with worship. Occasionally we would look outside to see if there might be a break in the clouds moving across the San Joaquin Valley. Just after sunset patches of clear sky were appearing. At 6 my friend hollered that Jupiter was directly over the moon. So we grabbed a binoculars and enjoyed the relatively close “meeting” of the two bodies: the brightest “wandering” star and the ruler of the night. It was a perfect vertical positioning as we watched the clouds roll past the scene. We could see nothing over half the time but I remembered several scenes of the tracks of cloud edges moving around the moon and Jupiter. I chose one to record, where a band of very dark clouds was moving across the moon.

Neither one of us take the sky scenes for granted. We had a good time giving thanks to the Lord for the work of His hands. It was an excellent evening to give thanks to the Creator of it all…

We avidly enjoy the observation of God's creation in terms of stars, the moon, and earthly things. We teach others to observe what He has made. Part of the outreach and work is to maintain a site: [or use the new address]. This site has been changed to include this blog along with three other inspirational blogs. We invite you to take a look and follow us there. Whether here or at the new site, our purpose is unchanged. We aim to share the love of Jesus Christ, who has graciously kept us and made us excited about seeing what he has made. Our faith is a walking faith, so faith and works, as much as we are able, are married together.
