Night Wonders

We had started a new church in a small country town and we lived in a rented house on the edge of town near the cemetery. The wonder of wonders for us was the night sky in brilliant array. With almost no city background lights the sky was filled with diamonds.
 Big Grin
I remember an August night when I knew of a meteor shower expected to be awesome. For once we let the girls stay up very late and took blankets out on the front lawn. Shortly after midnight the show began  and for hours we gasp in delight as shooting stars crossed the heavens above us, No one slept through that,
 Cloud Nine
Our daughters were quite young then and the memory of that event shared with them still evokes wonder and joy.  Cool
