moon child

at 4 am i came into their dark room to put samson back to bed after he had eaten. 
i see clementine awake lying in bed and she said, 
"i see moon." 
i hunch over to look out her window and sure enough, 
there's the big, bright moon shining down on my little girl. 
in the stillness of the morning it almost felt like magic. 
that is the world He created for us. if we will only look, there is so 
much beauty and sacredness around. 
i climb into bed with her and cuddle her close
i can't help but kiss her a few times and tell her how much i love her. 
upon returning to my own bed i feel so much love and gratitude for
this sweet, simple life i am living.
