“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 38: 3-4
Today the world paused to look up at the magnificent work of the Lord. He moved the moon in front of the Sun, and brought some calm to our nation. We go from here to there, jumping from this news cycle to that. But God reminded us that he was in control today. And I’m thankful for that.
