This picture was taken just a bit ago.
What a nice day. Full of all the normal daily activities that keep us hopping from sun-up to sun-down -but with a couple perks.
We enjoyed a relaxing dinner with some new friends who just moved here from Panama.
After they left we were clearing the table -because we eat outside every single evening. And then our little tribe of 5 sat down to enjoy the clear night sky.
Each evening the first luminary we see is Venus across the lake peaking up behind the mountains. So clear. So distinctive.
I wish there was some way to show you all how bright and numerous the stars are against the clear black sky here. I just takes my breath away.
We have fallen into the habit of ending up out on our terrace in the evening as the stars come out -and just gazing at the twinkly show.
Well, this evening as we looked up we saw …falling stars.
(there are not really words to put in how much just watching something so beautiful feels. peace. awe. a bond to our Creator. the priceless sharing of that with my little family. a treasure.)
Anyway, how was your day?
Did you have a moment to reflect and appreciate the marvels of creation?
