On the dedication page of The Moon is Always Round, author Jonathan Gibson writes,
Whatever happens in life, remember:
The moon is round.
The moon is always round.
I love you,
And so begins a little children’s book about the moon’s constancy, even when its face is obscured by darkness. Through his mother’s pregnancy, a boy notices the lunar phases, little realizing that when his sister is stillborn, that same moon will illustrate truth about God’s nearness and comfort, even in suffering.
This book is a gem for anyone who has lost someone. For anyone who’s hurting.
And some scenes from earlier this week:
When morning is candy.
“Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well.”
Leaving the nest . . . some kids can’t wait to jump.
Garden orb weaver spiderlings, dusk dispersal.
Straight out of Sugar Birds:
“And the robins’ eggs? Those tiny blue orbs snugged into mud cups like pieces of sky. Aggie savored the hope in them, had captured it in her sketchbook. Wished she could stay in egg season forever.”
May you always know the shape of the moon, friends.
