Interestingly, the supermoon in September 9 was also called a harvest moon. Some days before that date, the weather had been favorable, affording me opportunities to follow its development. And so I took several pictures from its waxing phases to the first waning phase.

Whereas many of us today are dazed by this heavenly phenomenon, I know that this will become a common occurence in the new world where righteousness will prevail. We will have the chance to witness it year after year through all eternity. Faithful is He who promised these words concerning a life without end:

"In his days the righteous one will sprout,
And the abundance of peace until the moon is no more."
Psalm 72:7

Of course, the moon will never be put out of existence. It will always be there as our planet's helpful companion. So will true peace abound, to be experienced by righteous mankind. Forever.

Meanwhile, I keep myself bedazzled by the marvel of the supermoon and even the moon's non-super state. Just the sight of it can add up to the many things that can make our life in this present world a joy to live.
