A month of gratitude......moon and stars

(Pre-P.S. I had a great post for 11/12/13 because it was my half birthday, and I look at the post list today, and for some reason it never got posted. Fizzzzzzzz. 
It was really good, too---oh well.)

Tonight, I'm grateful for a moon and star lit walk in the crisp fall air. I love to walk at night. And tonight the moon shone softly while my sister and I crunched through the leaves. 
One of my favorite psalms declares our response in seeing the intricate beauty and handiwork of the skies. 
Read through this psalm, then look up in wonder. 

O Lord, our Lord,
    how majestic is your name in all the earth!
You have set your glory above the heavens.

Out of the mouth of babies and infants,
you have established strength because of your foes,
    to still the enemy and the avenger.
When I look at your heavens, the work of your fingers,
    the moon and the stars,which you have set in place,
what is man that you aremindful of him,
    and the son of man that you care for him?
Yet you have made him a little lower than the heavenly beings
    and crowned him with glory and honor.
You have given him dominion over the works of your hands;
    you have put all things under his feet,
all sheep and oxen,
    and also the beasts of the field,
the birds of the heavens, and the fish of the sea,
    whatever passes along the paths of the seas.
O Lord, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth!
