{Re} flect Light

This post was originally published on November 28, 2016 following the supermoon. During this season of Lent, reflection is what it’s all about. Enjoy a repeat.

It won’t happen again until 2034.

A supermoon as close as the one this year.

It was unbelievably breathtaking.

Yes, I tried it again with my iPhone, before sunrise on November 14, 2016. There are several beautiful shots in this article: The Guardian.

The predawn showing of our luminous, celestial guardian of the night was stunning. God flung it into the sky to orbit the earth. The author of Genesis says it presides over the night.

As the lesser light — it doesn’t really produce it’s own light. Because the moon’s craggy, pavement-colored surface simply {re}­flects the light of the sun, only about 3 to 12 percent of the sun’s light is actually seen from earth.

It seems brighter when it’s closer to the earth. During a supermoon it appears 14 percent bigger and 30 percent brighter than a regular full moon.

Night after night. It sits up there in earth’s orbit and {re}­flects light. Doing the job it was set in motion to do.

“Then Jesus spoke out again, ‘I am the light of the world. The one who follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.’” John 8:12

In Matthew, Jesus tells his followers, “You are the light of the world.”

In joyful times.

{Re}flect The Light.

In fractious times.

{Re}flect Jesus.

Be the moon.

Move a little closer to those who need to see the light.

{Re}flect The Light.

Be. The. Moon.

{Re}flect Jesus.

For ALL you’re worth.

{Re}flect The Light.
