Meteor Showers

Our family loves meteor showers and star gazing.  Enough that we get up in the middle of the night and predawn hours to enjoy the sights.  When the kids were small, we got up about 4 am to lie on the golf course in Florida one time to watch the meteors.  A few years ago, Katryn and I got up about 2 am, spread a blanket on our lawn, and lay looking at the meteors and talking about life for an hour.  More recently Deryck and I set alarms and went out on the second floor balcony in the midnight hours to watch for meteors.  There is something about the majesty of the skies that makes it worth getting up to see these sights.  I am continually amazed and awed by creation and its beauty.  When I spend time in nature, it grounds and centers me; it reminds me of how big God is and how He loves to bring us joy and delight.  I find serenity when I can spend time outdoors enjoying all the sights of weather, sky, nature, creatures, and trees.  Most days I stop to take pictures of clouds or sunsets.  Taking time for the enjoyment of life’s little pleasures keeps me serene.
