A Crescent Moon

Time on my patio the other evening ended with the beautiful appearance of a crescent moon.

The crescent moon is a symbol of new beginnings, hope, and optimism. It signifies the waxing phase of the lunar cycle- when night becomes day in its fullest form. This phase can also be seen as representing life’s journey from darkness into light; it offers guidance to those who are lost on their path.

What a perfect way to end the evening.

Hope is significant in life. It is the very essence of God and it cannot be taken from you. King Solomon wrote in Proverbs 13:12:

“Hope deferred can make the heart sick,”

and it certainly can. Nevertheless, even if hope is delayed — it still remains.
