Let's Chase the Moon

I've always loved the moon.  I've frightened many a friend and college roommate by gasping loudly in the passenger seat of their car, making them think they were on the verge of running into something.  What had really happened?  Oh, we just rounded a corner and saw a glorious full moon rising on the horizon.  My poor friends.  I'm happy to report that Ella reacts much the same way.  A few months ago we got out of the car, and she ran out in the yard, and I heard a huge intake of breath, and somewhat startled, said, "What is it?"  "The moon!  I see the moon!"  Yes, she's my daughter.  

One of the first things I did with KJ the night after he first told me he had feelings for me was to make him jump in my car in a hurry one night so we could chase the moon and watch it rise from a good vantage point.  

Last night I was leaving my neighborhood and was just about to turn out when I saw something that made me turn around and drive back to my house for the camera.  I just can't help it.


  1. I do the same thing. Joy does too. I must be genetics:)

  2. I wholeheartedly understand this. The night sky is one of the biggest draws for hiking in areas miles and miles away from light pollution - only once in my life have I been blessed to be somewhere were the closest electric light was over 40 miles away. Every night, the sky was incredible.

  3. Oh Lynn Ben and I talk about you almost every time there is a beautiful moon and sweet Amy came for a visit not long ago and still remembers your love for the moon I AM SO PLEASED ELLA GOT THAT FROM YOU!!!!!!! it is one of my favorite things about you other than how we could hold hands and hug forever without thinking one thing odd about it... i am so happy what a great picture..keep chasing the moon Lynn i love how you love the glorious God of that moon too!!
