The early morning hours of June 6, 2016, were to be a great opportunity to view and photograph the Milky Way: moonless and cloudless. I drove a few hundred miles out of the Dallas/Ft. Worth area to avoid the city lights, and at 4 a.m., in a secluded and dark are of Texas, I was set to take pictures of our heavenly home base.
Then, quite unexpectedly, light, wispy clouds – clouds that were not forecasted to be there – drifted in and obscured the view.
The Milky Way in all its splendor was there … but I couldn’t see it.
It was disappointing, but the trip was not wasted, for in the disappointment was a lesson.
There are times in my search for God that I cannot see Him. I know He, in all His splendor, is there … but my view is obscured; and that’s when a statement like the following makes sense: faith sees the unseeable.
