“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.”
Our local Christian church school that has a big grassy area next to their building implemented the idea of having their school children put up 6000 little flags to honor and pay tribute to the 6000 Oregon soldiers who lost their lives in all the wars.
I visited the display today and was deeply touched by how beautiful it was. Seeing all those little flags blowing in the soft breeze made me so thankful for the freedom we enjoy in our country and for those who paid the price to achieve it.
Today as we celebrate International Womens Day I wanted to pay tribute to the women in America who fought for the right of women to vote. The Suffrage women, those activists who fought long and hard, sacrificing much, in order to overcome injustice and obtain equality for women to vote.
Beginning in the 1840’s many American women rose up to fight for women’s rights and the Suffrage Movement had a number of bold women who campaigned tirelessly for the cause. Finally in 1920, an 19th Amendment was passed that allowed to women to legally vote in the USA.
I recently watched the movie titled “Iron-Jawed Angels” which tells the true story of the courageous women who put their lives on the line to gain this victory and I would encourage every woman to watch this movie. It is an eye opener and one that will cause you to be grateful for the rights which you now enjoy because of what these women did!
I am feeling a heavy stillness in the air today. No wind at all. Our Flag hangs silently. It’s eerie. It’s almost like nature and mankind are holding their breath awaiting this Election Day outcome. I shall pray and trust in God for His will to be done on earth as it is in heaven.
