I look up at your macro-skies, dark and enormous,
your handmade sky-jewelry,
Moon and stars mounted in their settings.
Then I look at my micro-self and wonder,
Why do you bother with us?
Why take a second look our way?
~Psalm 8:3-4 (Message)
The brightness woke me the other night,
so I rose to take these photos out the window.
Now it’s your turn. What have you seen or heard lately that made you stop and catch your breath? Won’t you share? Get the details at the Still Saturday tab above. link up a photo, grab a button, and let us marvel with you.

Louise G says
So mysterious and magical.
And what a cool idea about Saturdays…
Thanks, Louise. I’m loving the linked beauty.
Patricia @ Pollywog Creek says
So lovely, Sandra. And that moon. Wasn’t it perfectly delicious this week? I was up early, early one morning…just basking in the moonlight.
LOVE your “still saturday” community, Sandra. Thank you.
Delicious. Yes. So glad you’re linking up with those beautiful shots of yours.
I read your FB update saying you were up at some crazy hour taking photos of the moon. Looks like it’s watching us through the tree branches.
LOL. And that moon spot was there before the picture. Whichever way I dodged between those curtains.
Shari @ Leaving A Legacy says
I loved how you captured the moon. It looked very mysterious through the trees. The verse and pictures were perfect together.
Thank you, Shari. So glad to see you here!
Dea Moore says
For years we kept the windows uncovered and I awakened many nights to see the moon shadows… I miss that.
My first time to link on Saturday…Thanks for the “still” place.
Hi Dea! I do love sleeping with the shades up to watch the sky. Especially on lightning nights. 🙂
Excited that you are joining us.
Duane Scott says
We both took pictures of the moon!
And nice scripture reference.
And with the branches, too.
So glad you took my “advice” and linked up. Your post and photo are truly restful and still–except for the sound of two hearts beating as one.
Looking at this full moon, I was reminded of Anais Nin writing about “moonbathing”. They would not leave you tanned, but glowing like a pearl…
Lyla Lindquist says
Handmade sky jewelry. Score.
Jody Collins says
that ol’ moon was really getting around the other night, from one coast to the other. Couldn’t help putting pen to virtual paper, too!
I love that we all see the same moon wherever we are. Kind of connects us. 🙂
Shelly Miller says
We grab our cameras to catch a glimpse of heaven as it passes by. I found myself taking photos of the beautiful sky as we drive this weekend. And they don’t quite capture what I am seeing but I am grateful for those fleeting moments of hope that pass by. And I miss the moon shadows that used to cross my bed and you helped me remember that.
I do that, too. It helps me savor the moments longer.

“Macro skies” and “micro self”… Macro God and micro me. Such good thoughts today, every day. Beautiful moon these past few nights too. Yes, a mysterious, ever-changing jewel in the night sky. Beautiful, Sandy!
