deep thoughts from on top of my dads truck || stars

yes the moon looks like a jellybean i know



no these pics are not from this day--i actually took these another day and actually found a way to use them on here lol

I lost the round of hide and seek (PLAYING IN THE MOONLIGHT IS EPIC PLZ DO IT) so after wandering around in the dark I hopped onto my dad's pickup truck and laid down on the truck beds cover.

let me tell you, I was glad I lost the game of hide and seek. yes it was cold but, those stars. like, so amazing. Like remember those cold nights when you would press your forehead against the window in the car as you drive, and watch the stars go by and think the moon is chasing you (oh and when Julia and I would compete in who could hold their hand to the icy window pane the longest..) *whispers* we have always been competitive..

but back to stars. it was like when I went to the dunes--like, how you could sense the wideness and roundness of it all. when I laid on top of that truck my face was to the stars and that's all I saw. it's so amazing. you don't even speak and you wonder why you have missed so many nights of those wonderful stargazing times when God has put that wonderful show right over your head. a show that never gets old and will never stop taking your breath away.

when you look up at those stars, suddenly you feel so small. so minimal and yet, somehow, you are important in God's eyes. we are a spec in that galaxy above our heads and who knows what beyond--and yet we seem to always forget that. forget how small we are and how much God has done for me and you. He saved us. He died for us. He gave us life.

it's so incomprehensible. so awesome.


have you ever stargazed?
on a side note, did you see the supermoon?

  1. I LOVE stars. Were about to go to our mountain cabin, so I'll be able to do some stargazing out there. :)
    I did see the supermoon, but I think I missed the peak. It was still really pretty though!
    Great post!

  2. I enjoyed this post a lot, Sarah, and smiled at your comment section. "Do you like chocolate?" you ask.
    I think you know the answer to that. ;)

    It is truly amazing to enjoy the sky and the moon, the stars, and all of the Lord's creation. Something about the night magnifies how truly blessed we are, how minuscule in the grand scheme of things, and yet, the Lord still cares about us.

    Enjoyed the post! I didn't see the supermoon, it decided to rain on the day of the supermoon. ;)

  3. Stargazing is my favorite!! It also always gives me so much needed perspective in my life!! With realizing just how big God is and how small I am, and yet how He is ALWAYS there for little old me and loves ME still! <3
    XOXO

  4. Oh! I love star gazing! I especially loved sleeping under the stars this summer with my friends at my Grandpa's ranch. We slept on mattresses, so we were plenty comfortable while star gazing. ;D Though, I did find that it's hard to sleep when there's such a wonderful show above you. Every time I opened my eyes to roll over, I'd just want to stare at the sky and I'd never fall asleep. ;)

  6. I love stargazing. And doing it in the back of a truck sounds amazing! Also, I love that first picture you took with the sunset in the background!
    I have stargazed before; my favorite time to do it is when we go camping and the moonlight all reflects in the lake water and it's sooo pretty!
    I did see the supermoon . . . it wasn't as big as I was expecting? idk. ;P I did get some cool pictures, though. (And I was once again surprised at how well an iPhone camera works. xD)
    And . . . I do love chocolate. Dark chocolate, especially! *peers in closet* I see barrels . . .

  7. OH MY GOODNESS YES TO THIS WHOLE POST. JUST YESSSSSS. <3333 AND I LOVE STARS SO MUCH. (I'm going to go send you a pin that has to do with stars and our INFJ personality type. Mind=blown. JK. But it's cool.)

    P.S. I'm a bit excited cuz I'm going to do an astronomy class for Science next year -- and it's even better bc it has to do with the Jewish constellations which is WHAT I WANTED WHAT cuz I read a book that talked about the Jewish constellations and I just suddenly wished I knew what they were talking about. Plus, as I said, I love stars. LOVE THEM. K. Gonna go send you that pin now. XD

  11. Stargazing is the best.. Like you said, it gives such a picture of God's incomprehensible thought for us. And yes, I forgot how it used to look like the moon was chasing you!

    Anyway, I really enjoyed reading this post, Sarah! xx
