On our inspiration page (top left story) at our ministry site (address below the signature) you can find a story and sketch about the setting crescent. A couple nights ago the skies cleared up for about an hour. The haze was thick and the crescent orange-yellow. There was enough time to get a sketch. It was a good night to give thanks.

Roland,

Beautiful yellow Moon and foreground tree sketch - one of your best naked eye sketches and inspiring words.

Frank :)

Roland

You've captured one of those special moments well. :bow: :bow: :bow:

The words in scripture are so true; they are humbling yet inspiring at the same time.

Thanks for sharing this as I've missed your posts for some time.

Mark

Thank you Mark and Frank. It was good that I observed that brief period....it has been cloudy and even more haze since then. Roland

Roland,

A beautiful Crescent Moon and verse to share with us all. We are very fortunate to live in a world and universe that serves our needs. Thank you for sharing this with us all.
