Waning Gibbous – Day 20

The moon is fading more and more with each passing day.  Yet, we don’t usually see the moon.  We work all day, come home eat and go to sleep.  We don’t stop to look at the moon.  We are too busy. Our lives are…

Waning Gibbous – Day 19

The moon is still bright, still closer to full than new.  Just looking at it fills you with the sense of being part of a greater whole.  But what part?  How big a part?  God gave us the gifts of reason and sense of…

Waning Gibbous – Day 18

The moonlight is almost half gone.  Yet, while the moon still holds more light than it will for the rest of the month therefore we turn our minds to a more glorious light, the light of love and compassion.  God gives us the gifts…

Waxing Gibbous – Day 13
