I am especially excited about today’s post. Our son, my husband, and our videographer have created a beautiful two-minute video about the moon landing. It features film from 1969. It also features “A Day in July,” a poem my husband Ray wrote in 1969 about the landing on the moon. I believe you will enjoy these clips and the thoughts of seventeen-year-old Ray Notgrass.

A Day in July

Fair Moon, thy paths, for millennia yet
Uncrossed, streak the black sky.
From dawn to dusk, and dusk to dawn—
A radiant orb in the ebony high.

But hold! A strange object approaches.
It circles thee like an endless satellite—
Like unto what thou art to earth—
Something has pierced the eternal night.

It nears, and relentlessly waxes
Larger and nearer—to thy face unhanded.
The march of time must ne’er be stopped.
O Moon—Man has landed!

Indeed . . .

The heavens are telling of the glory of God;
And their expanse is declaring the work of His hands.
Day to day pours forth speech,
And night to night reveals knowledge.
There is no speech, nor are there words;
Their voice is not heard.
Their line has gone out through all the earth,
And their utterances to the end of the world.
Psalm 19:1-4
