What else are we missing?

It’s possible to see something every day and miss its beauty?

We know what it is like to be so familiar with something that we don’t actually see it. Or to one day walk by something and actually see it as if we were seeing it for the very first time. Something as simple as falling Spring snow as we had this past week, or seeing an old friend, or seeing some truth about yourself.

Every once in a while we get the gift of seeing something as if it were for the very first time. Let’s do that more often with each other. See each other as if for the very first time. We just might appreciate each other more.

In “A New View of The Moon,” filmmakers Wylie Overstreet and Alex Gorosh took a telescope to different places around Los Angeles to give people an up-close look at the moon. Watch and see how similar their reactions are to something we see all the time. Do we see it? Or do we just walk by and miss the beauty above us, around us, within us?

Enjoy this short three minute film.

Peace friends,

    We know that God is everywhere; but certainly we feel His presence most when His works are on the grandest scale spread before us; and it is in the unclouded night-sky, where His worlds wheel their silent course, that we read clearest His infinitude, His omnipotence, His omnipresence.

    Thanks Chuck, we are ONE and our oneness will prove to be stronger than those who try to dissolve us into OTHERS.
