Can You See Heaven?

Abby took this picture with her cell phone camera, through my dirty windshield. It was much prettier in real life. We had just gotten home after spending a nice day doing family things, and she pointed out the sky to me, and when I looked, I was blown away. I had spent the whole day looking at my kids, looking at little things that they wanted to show me, things they'd found on the ground; rocks,bottle caps, centipedes.

I had spent the day counting the freckles on my wife's neck. After a day of looking close at small (important) things, looking at that huge sky took my words away. The picture doesn't do it justice.
