On our side of the mountain, when the air is crisp and the sun begins to set without a cloud in the sky, you know it is going to be a cold night (low 50s). It was on one of these nights early on after we first moved into the jungle that Mike had to go outside for something and I heard him calling for me. So I walked out into the yard in front of our house and the view above me was breathtaking. There are no words to describe the beauty of a star-filled sky that far away from city lights. We just stood there and stared. There were many nights to come that we would see what I came to call “Abraham skies,” because surely Abraham saw a star-filled sky like I saw that night and pondered the words of the Lord,

I will surely bless you and make your descendants as numerous as the stars in the sky. (Genesis 22:17)

There is something about seeing the vastness of creation that helps put life into perspective. It reminds us of the might of our Creator and how privileged we are to be cared for by Him.

Around the Fire
When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars which you have set in place, what is man that you are mindful of him, the son of man that you care for him? (Psalm 8:3–4)

(The Created Cosmos DVD from Answers in Genesis is a Wild family favorite and is highly recommended!)
