Total Lunar Eclipse

Well, this morning God blessed me by allowing me to see a total lunar eclipse. It was beautiful and definitely worth getting up a few minutes earlier to watch it! =) I was able to see the earth's shadow just starting to cross over the moon, and gradually the moon got darker and darker. Eventually it was all covered over, and then I could see a thin crescent of light on one side while the other side remained in darkness. It had a little reddish hue--it almost looked like a giant planet Mars! I watched it until the moon sank below the clouds. What a blessing to see! I wish I could show you a picture of it.

"The heavens declare the glory of God, and the firmament sheweth His handiwork" (Psalm 19:1).

Were you privileged to see this eclipse this morning? If so, please leave a comment and tell me about it!
