Hallelujah for REVERB15 and the opportunity to reflect about moons and the messages they have for us!
Almost every day, I orient myself and look up into the sky to observe where the moon is and to admire its shape in whatever phase it might be. To this day, I still experience a slight sadness when it begins to wane and an exuberance when it turns to waxing. How satisfied I was recently when it was at its must full during our Thanksgiving holiday.
My darling Chiboogamoo and I were in Savannah, Georgia, for our annual celebration of the harvest. On the night of the Thanksgiving feast when I listened to this full Thanksgiving moon, I heard the words GRATITUDE.I have a daily gratitude practice, a time when I acknowledge the good in my life, sometimes enacted when I have insomnia. The message that this full moon sang to me was part of the litany I hear each day as a result of noticing the FULLNESS in my life.
Thank you for my sweet patient and talented husband. Thank you for my healthy 86-year-old mother and big sister, who I traveled with for my Uncle Ken's funeral today. Thank you for the abundance in my life that allows me to explore my creativity and expand my community. Thank you for the GREAT MYSTERY that pulls me forward in this wondrous life!

That's Coffee with Hallelujah! SOUL BLOG with me and tell me about the last time you looked to the moon. What did you hear?
