As I'm sure you all know, last night was a Blood Moon, Super Moon, Harvest Moon and full moon. It was also a total lunar eclipse. The eclipse itself was interesting to watch. Now add the red, blood moon, amazing!
As I reflected about what I had just experienced, what struck me was how this event connected people. My "facebook friends" were posting pictures and comments. My nephew in Maryland, my niece in Illinois, my son and his girlfriend in California, friends in Honduras were all looking at the same event at the same time. People all over the world were looking at the same moon at the exact same time. World wide, we were All looking to the same sky. We were ALL enjoying the same celestial gift. In spite of our perceived differences, for a magical moment in time, we were all united.
Wouldn't it be wonderful if we could do that all the time? Wouldn't it be like heaven on earth if we could all focus on the ways that we're alike instead of the ways we're different? Is that even possible for us - the human race - to do? I don't know the answer to that. I just know that I'll alwasys treasure that wonderful, magical moment in time when we did.
