I already miss Monday. I already miss the hype & America's united excitement for something inherently good.
My friend Rachel snapped this photo as the eclipse was waning, right as there was a brilliant flash of light from the recovering sun and cheers and tears erupted from the entire mountain top viewing crew we had joined for this 2 minute phenomenon. The more I look at it the more I'm in awe of what an amazing experience it was, and more-so, what a unifying feeling it propelled. We were all looking up at the same sky, the same sun, the same moon, in the same ridiculous glasses we ordered on Amazon, soaking in beauty and observing the wondrous world our Creator created. Glorious.
Sure, we've now seen about 627,826,144 photos of the eclipse and exhausted our breath talking about it. But KEEP 'EM COMING! This is the first time in 2017 where our country as a whole has agreed on something... something life-giving, something pure.
We should be seeking more of these times and squashing the things that pull us apart. I think God pulls people together in perfect ways at the very time it's needed - let this be a catalyst. 📷: @rachelbrandt
