a smile and a wink

I stepped out last night to look at a couple
of
heavenly bodies...


...and they winked back at me!

It was Moon and Jupiter.

I said, "just a minute guys, I'll be right back with my camera!"
They waited ever so quietly as the winds kept the clouds away.
I snapped a half a dozen pictures and then thanked them for posing so sweetly.
If it's a clear night where you are, go outside and look UP!
It's a real WOW moment.

What a beautiful universe God made!

“The moon, like a flower

In heaven's high bower,

With silent delight

Sits and smiles on the night.”

 William Blake

I agree with you Maria, the sky of late has been just magical. I go out and look up at it too, it just makes me feel so close to my Heavenly Father. :)

Maria my precious friend!

I was away from Blogland yesterday but here I am to see that you captured what I have been MISSING! My eyes have been looking downward to much these past few days, but looking up is a good idea to gain perspective on what is going on down here on earth. WHAT A VIEW!! HOW ARE YOU PRECIOUS?

I start spring break next week. How about you? Anita

Hi Maria,
Thanks for stopping by the other day, that was nice! The sky looks heavenly! Every night when I walk the dogs I look up at all of the stars and moon. Sometimes I am so enthralled, I don't even notice if my dogs tinkled!!
Love Di ♥

This was amazing my friend...I thank you for letting me know...all I had to do was step into Sydney's room and there they were shinning in her window....pure joy.
Thank you for your sweetness...Syd is doing very well and they are blessing the people of Mexico but I think they are being blessed by the Mexicans even more!
God is amazingly good! xoxoxo HUGS

Now why didn't I think of that! Last night, husband and I were on our back porch and looked at the same scene, Maria!

it is always so peaceful and grateful visiting you Maria .
The moon ....why did not I have such an inspiration .....
First of all I live in the city and there is just a little piece of sky to see .
Second it's never real dark with all the citylights .....
But ....I will try tonight and say thanks .....and think of you
You are a very dear far-away friend but ....when can both see the moon so......
