We have been richly blessed by Rollins Christian Fellowship Church in Manton, MI to live in this house which for us has become a respite and home for these months of home ministry assignment in the USA. We really didn’t know just how much we needed this time to rest and recoup from urban, cross-cultural living and to address some nagging physical issues that will take months to resolve (at least, we hope we can see them resolved).
I actually took this photo simply because we had been out picking up our much-needed new glasses from Costco, visiting ministry partners from Tennessee, and then driving up to Petoskey, MI where we stayed a couple nights on our honeymoon 30 years ago (in about 2 weeks from now).
Upon returning home 12 hours from when we left this morning, I decided to check the mailbox across the rural highway. I noticed the sun was setting. As I turned to look for traffic, I noticed that 180 degrees opposite the position of the sunset was the moonrise. I snapped a panoramic shot trying to catch them both before the sun disappeared. Can you spot the moon? It’s just a bright blip on this pic, but it was actually clear and large in the eastward sky.
