The Other Side




"From within or from behind,  a light shines through us upon things, and makes us aware that we are nothing, but the light is all."
Ralph Waldo Emerson


When I took the pictures of the moon in my last post, I had really gone out to snap the sunset. But turning around, saw the moon rising in all it's splendor. So I had the blazing light of the sun setting on one side of the mountains, and the glowing light of the moon rising on the other side. The light on all sides. Each different but beautiful, cascading in it's glory.


“So, my very dear friends, don't get thrown off course. Every desirable and beneficial gift comes out of heaven. The gifts are rivers of light cascading down from the Father of Light.”
James 1

Ginny, I love the way you caught the teasel in the foreground of your photos. It looks like you had a fantastic view no matter which direction you turned.

So, I had to scroll down and take in the beauty of the moon on the opposite side of the sky...and then the sun setting in the other corner...wow. Just plain wow. What beauty we have here on our globe...the vision of so many promises of the splendor of it all...and sad to know that some miss out on it each and every day, not taking time to drink it all in.

Hey!!! I've missed you. I do hope you're feeling much better now, and continue to recover.

I remember well seeing the moon on one side of the valley and the sun on the other. I also remember rainbows arcing over. I'm homesick!

Best,
Bonnie

Do you remember the Ship Rena that grounded in our water three months ago? It has split into two, almost sunk completely and littering the sea and beach with containers and food stuff.

Isn't God amazing - that is all I can think about when I see the moon and realize the affect it has on the earth. But what is beautiful is your granddaughter on the drums - she is so happy! sandie
