I celebrated the Solar Eclipse of 2017 with my children today. It was wonderful to witness their fascination with the sun and moon.
Here is a prayer for all three of my children, Psalm 121.
I lift up my eyes to the hills.
From where does my help come?
My help comes from the Lord,
who made heaven and earth.
He will not let your foot be moved;
he who keeps you will not slumber.
Behold, he who keeps Israel
will neither slumber nor sleep.
The Lord is your keeper;
the Lord is your shade on your right hand.
The sun shall not strike you by day,
nor the moon by night.
The Lord will keep you from all evil;
he will keep your life.
The Lord will keep
your going out and your coming in
from this time forth and forevermore.
It’s hard impossible to say where any of us will be in seven years when another solar eclipse crosses the United States of America. Fourteen states including Oklahoma will experience totality on April 8, 2024. My son will be a senior in high school at that time, preparing to graduate and hopefully start his college career! Life moves so fast, friends. Enjoy all the days, all the moons, all the stars.
