There’s a moon out tonight wah wah wahooooo.

As we keep our eyes toward the heavens I think that it is a shame that we have abandoned much of our astronomical symbolism for fear that it may be construed as something New Age-ish. When my class was looking to put a coat of arms together one of the suggestions contained a moon and stars. This was rejected not so much because it was disliked but because it “sent the wrong message and looked too much like something that Shirley McClain might be interested in.” Oh, perhaps they were right.

The crescent moon has been a traditional symbol of Mary, the woman, “clothed with the sun and the moon under her feet” (Revelation 12:1). The full moon also often represents Mary for it explains her glory. It is not from her own merit but that she se well reflects her glorious Son the same way that the moon creates no light of its own bur reflects the radiance of the sun.

Often at night I look up at the moon and say a prayer asking for Mary’s intercession for acquaintances all around the globe that she can offer as her symbols roles around the night sky.

I like these verses from Bible, and would like to share them with you. For we should love Gods word so much

Romans 3:23 For all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God

Romans 6: 23 For wages of sin is death but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ jesus

Romans 5:8 God proved his love to us in yet while we were sinners Christ died for us

Romans 10:9-13 If you confess with your mouth that jesus is Lord and beleive in your heart that God raised him from the dead you will be saved

Turn from sin, and place faith and trust in Christ alone

James 2:19 You believe there is a God good even demons do

Ephesians 2:8-9 For it is by grace that one is saved and this is not of works

Psalm 14:3 for there is no one who does good not even one.

Sin has a price and that price is hell, so turn from sin and place faith in Christ and give him the wheels to your car and have control of your life
