One Day



She rests easy in the dark night sky. Her gentle face reflects the peaceful light of eternity. We are trying to shelter against war, famine and earthly destruction.  We are trying to close out angry evil sounds.  We close our ears to the cry of pain.  We close our eyes to shut out ugly visions.  We sigh and breathe in dust-filled air.  But, if you cast your eyes upward, she will remind you, that this too will pass. The beauty of our earth will survive in time.  She will return to bathe us in her silver calming light until all is healed.  Peace is patient.

  1. Love that last one with the reflection, Tabor... That's the prettiest one I have seen yet... Thanks!!!

    We sat outside on the golf course for a long time last night --but by the time the moon came over the mountains here and through the clouds, it was pretty high in the sky... Your pictures are AWESOME.
    Hugs,

  5. Marvelous photos!! It got cloudy here, so I didn't see it very well. We have so many trees in the east that by the time we can see the moon, it is too high to look that large.
