Hey You Guys!

Pretty epic night...

Even as I write this, I'm watching the final minutes of one of the great movie classics of all time...

...The Goonies.

It's given us such great cinematic moments as:
the 'truffle shuffle,'
'pinchas of powah,'
'baby ruuuuuuuuuth,'
and, my all-time favorite...

Mrs. Fratelli: Tell us everything! Everything!
Chunk: Everything. OK! I'll talk! 
In third grade, I cheated on my history exam. 
In fourth grade, I stole my uncle Max's toupee and I glued it on my face when I was Moses in my Hebrew School play. 
In fifth grade, I knocked my sister Edie down the stairs and I blamed it on the dog... 
When my mom sent me to the summer camp for fat kids and then they served lunch I got nuts and I pigged out and they kicked me out... 
But the worst thing I ever done - I mixed a pot of fake puke at home and then I went to this movie theater, hid the puke in my jacket, climbed up to the balcony and then, t-t-then, I made a noise like this: hua-hua-hua-huaaaaaaa - and then I dumped it over the side, all over the people in the audience. And then, this was horrible, all the people started getting sick and throwing up all over each other. 
I never felt so bad in my entire life. 

Sadly, I trivialize the true beauty of the night with that, but I couldn't resist. 

I was driving home tonight and saw this...
It was like the sky had a halo. 

My only regret is my inability to fully capture the beauty with my phone camera. I usually have my digital camera with me in my 'purse.' But not tonight, unfortunately.

Nights like tonight make me want to be Ansel Adams and travel the globe (or country) trying to capture a small sliver of the beauty. 

The Bible says in Romans 1 that creation is daily shouting 'hey you guys!' to get our attention off the small lives that we choose to live and point us to God. Jesus said that the very stones would cry out to praise Him if people didn't. The mountains and hills burst into song and trees of the field clap their hands in response to God, according to Isaiah 55.

So I guess the sky was in worship mode tonight, and singing/shouting loudly.

Actually, forget about Goonies. I'm shutting off my tv. 

It's sad how satisfied and enthralled (and anesthetized) I am/we are by the 'reality' of t.v. and computer. 

Nights like this put things in perspective.

right there with ya, man. I have so many sky pictures on my iphone...almost crashed last night on my way home. Jesus reminds me of His majesty and love in the "heavens." Good stuff.

Great pics. If you go "Ansel Adaming", take me along.
