Tonight is the Mid-Autumn Festival, the night when Taiwanese (and Chinese all around the world) typically barbecue under the bright moonlight of the fullest moon of the year. Since tomorrow is a work/school day most people already did their celebrating the last two nights, but here are two rough pics I shot of the moon tonight.
Of course, for Christians, it's not the moon we ultimately celebrate: "O LORD, our Sovereign, how majestic is your name in all the earth! You have set your
glory above the heavens....When I look at your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars that you have established; what are human beings that you are mindful of them, mortals that you care for them...O LORD, our Sovereign, how majestic is your name in all the earth!"
耶和華我們的主啊！你的名在全地是多麼威嚴，你把你的榮美彰顯在天上。。。我觀看你手所造的天，和你所安放的月亮和星星。 啊！人算甚麼，你竟記念他？世人算甚麼，你竟眷顧他？ 。。。耶和華我們的主啊！你的名在全地是多麼威嚴。
