Good evening all! Although it was not required or critical to sight the moon this evening, it has become a habit that I just cannot leave. I did not travel far to find this moon. Nor did I have to, and neither do you if you are a crescent chaser as well.
Like every other month I go out to see this tiny sliver of light in the sky, when I see it great joy fills my heart and I wear a grin from ear to ear. It is one of the most remarkable sights in all the world to me. The moon has been my monthly companion for the last 20 years and it still brings me as much awe and wonder as the first time I ever saw it.
This month the moon ushers in a blessed month of patience, vigilance, fortitude, faith, and spirituality – the month of Ramadan. It is the Muslim month of fasting in which observant Muslims abstain from food, drink and marital relations from dawn until sunset for the entirety of the month, solely out of obedience to our Loving and Merciful Creator.
So without further a due, here is the harkener of blessings upon blessings.
To all my Muslim readers…Ramadan Mubarak!
And Peace to all!
