I don’t know if I’ve mentioned this before, but since I’ve started working the evening shift(as opposed to the early early early morning shift of previous summers) I’ve been afflicted with a terrible case of insomnia. I don’t know if it’s too much chocolate before bed, a new home, stress, or what, but it’s getting out of hand.
So last night I grabbed my bible and headed out to the dock. Considering it was midnight, I also grabbed the new citronella candle my sister Anna bought. It was windy. I had to use my ingenuity but before long I was sitting by the lake with a candle flickering over the water reading the Psalmist’s wonder that an all powerful God is thinking of a lowly human.
As I sat on the dock and pondered the bigness of the universe and the smallness of myself I noticed the most amazing thing.
The water, the candle, the stars, the lights across the water…. It all came together to make something so beautiful that nothing will ever capture it. I found myself in one of those moments that will only ever live on in memory. No painting, no picture, no movie will ever do it justice.
And I serve the God who made an eternity’s worth of those moments.
