Yesterday I set out for my morning run at dawn. It was a simple four mile run. Out two and back. On the way out, I was running towards the massive harvest moon we have had this week. It was incredible. So bright, so clear in the morning sky. And so amazing. During those first two miles, the sky lightened but the moon continued to glow! I made the turn and covered the ground in reverse, enjoying the pleasure of the splendid colors of the morning sunrise.
The entire run I was thinking how there is just no way this majesty could just happen. It’s so simple, and so splendid. The science of it all is fantastic. It’s function is perfect and it’s aesthetics are breathtaking It seems to be the handiwork of a great designer. And it is good!
8 The whole earth is filled with awe at your wonders;
where morning dawns, where evening fades,
you call forth songs of joy. Psalm 65:8(NIV)
