Until it’s time for us to travel ON… we just travel. There is one simple joy in being a childless couple. We are free to take flight at a moment’s notice if we want to! My husband and I have been known to suddenly take off for parts unknown and drive all night to get there.
One such night I noticed the sky was darker than usual. We were parked at a local convenience store and I decided to get out and stretch my legs one last time before we did some serious traveling. I grabbed the camera and got a shot of this beautiful thumbnail moon. As I pointed the camera to take my shot, I said a little prayer for traveling mercies – again. Hey, you can’t over-pray these things!
I took the photo around 3am, which lets you know that we travel at strange times to be sure. I just kept thinking about how dark it was with that bit of light glowing in the sky. Other than being dark, it was beautiful weather. There was not a lot of wind (which is unusual for Kansas) and as I recall we wore long sleeves, but did not need coats.
The darkness was a little spooky. I’m not afraid of the dark, but it was just a different sort of night. It’s actually better to travel when there is not a full moon because that’s when strange things happen. So with that thought in mind, I embraced the little thumbnail moon and decided that God would see us safely to our destination.
The fear of man brings a snare, but whoever trusts in the Lord shall be safe. – Proverbs 29:25
Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God, I will strengthen you, yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand. – Isaiah 41:10
The giant known as FEAR disappeared through prayer and reminders from God’s Word. It was a lovely trip. ❤
