Flashlight

Uh, if I'm going to be the one walking AKD out to his bus stop in the morning, I think I'm gonna need a flashlight.  It's pitch dark out there at that time of day.  Tomorrow morning, try this: wake up at 6:15 a.m. and walk outside your house with no house or porch lights on.  OK, now imagine, if you can, no streetlights, and a curvy, hilly 1/8 mile driveway, surrounded by pine trees, to walk down.

Oh, but it was beautiful.  I had to pause as I stepped out into the crisp, cool early morning and noticed the thousands of twinkling lights in the sky and the shadow the earth cast on the moon.  What a magical time of day to be out and about.

14 And God said,
“Let there be lights in the vault of the sky to separate the day from the night, and let them serve as signs to mark sacred times, and days and years, 15 and let them be lights in the vault of the sky to give light on the earth.”
And it was so.
16 God made two great lights—
the greater light to govern the day and the lesser light to govern the night.
He also made the stars.
17 God set them in the vault of the sky to give light on the earth, 18 to govern the day and the night, and to separate light from darkness.
And God saw that it was good.
19 And there was evening, and there was morning—the fourth day. 
Genesis 1:14-19

1 LORD, our Lord,
how majestic is your name in all the earth!
You have set your glory
in the heavens.
3 When I consider your heavens,
the work of your fingers,
the moon and the stars,
which you have set in place,
4 what is mankind that you are mindful of them,
human beings that you care for them?
Psalm 8:1,3-4
