May’s big “Flower Moon”
Blooming in the eastern sky
Year’s last Supermoon
“A super moon is the result of the full moon coinciding with the moon’s closest point of orbit in relation to the Earth, which is known as perigee. The result is that the moon is not only full, but looks closer to us and brighter than usual. On average, a super moon is seven percent bigger and 15 percent brighter than a full moon.
The May Super Flower Moon is the last super moon this year.”

Seeking better days,
With some sunshine in life?
Looking for the light?
Are you standing in the sun
Or sitting in the shadows?
If you want light to come into your life, you need to stand where it is shining. ” —Guy Finley
“Keep your face to the sunshine and you cannot see a shadow. ” —Helen Keller
Our life as a beacon
It guides and inspires daily
Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path. Psalm 119:105

Once again we say
Goodbye to another year lived
We look back at days
The precious jewels of time
They live in our mind
Shining, jaded, memories
Remain, we reflect
Upon the good and bad days
Gone forever from us
Shining in the sun
Though a bit worn down from its use
Penny catches my eye
There lying in an obscure place, just off the beaten path was a penny.
I probably would never have noticed it if the sun hadn’t been shining as most of it was worn from use and dulled. It’s edges were rough, as if it had been chewed up a bit by a machine.
However, today in the sunlight it shone brightly enough for me to notice and that made me think of how I reflected my life.
What did people see when they looked at me? Was I shining in the light of the Son?
Was I noticeable or just obscure.? Was I making a difference in people’s lives?
I might be worn and weary, but I should still be shining out the light of Christ.
Something this little penny in my path made me ponder.
His transfigured presence
Shone white as snow
