Goodnight Moon

Well, first things first...I have finally entered the 21st century and as of last week, I have a "for real" cellular. Thus far we've had a prepaid for emergencies only. This new little baby is making life so much simpler. Especially texting. Oh My. 

Got this text from the in-laws. "You might be interested to know that a full moon like tonight won't reoccur for 18 years. It is at it's closest to the earth - hence at its largest. Can you take any pictures tonight? :)"

So The Engineer and I grabbed the camera and headed out in the front yard in our jammers...and I shot the moon.

And when I looked at the pictures - OH MY!!! I was gasping and going on and on, "Do you see this? I shot the moon and look at it. LOOK AT IT!" 

The Engineer was like, "What? Have you never seen a picture of the moon?"

"Well, yeah, but LOOK AT THIS!!! I mean, LOOK AT THIS!!! In our own front yard!!!"

O Lord, our Lord, how majestic is Your name in all the earth! 
You have set Your glory above the heavens. 

Out of the mouths of babies and infants, you have established strength because of your foes, 
to still the enemy and the avenger.

When I look at Your heavens, the work of your fingers, the MOON and the stars, 
which You have set in place, what is man that You are mindful of him, 
and the son of man that You care for him?

Yet You have made him a little lower than the heavenly beings
 and crowned him with glory and honor.

You have given him dominion over the works of Your hands; 
You have put all things under his feet, all sheep and oxen and also the beasts of the field, 
the birds of the heavens, and the fish of the seas.

O Lord, our Lord, how majestic is Your name in all the earth! ~Psalm 8

I mean, really. God is awesome. AWESOME.
