Blood Moon Rising

The blood moon rose over the Philippines last night. I wasn't able to catch it as the Manila sky was overcast. Glimpses of it appeared in the southern portion of the country though. Accordingly, the moon turns bloody red when it aligns with the Earth and the sun, a rare occurrence as the moon usually passes above or below the imaginary line connecting the earth and the sun. In fact, it was the first central total eclipse in seven years, as reported by the Discovery Channel.
I wonder what this rising blood moon will bring me.
Things always happen for a reason. There is no such thing as an accident. The entire universe's action is planned, purposeful. There is no random action, no meaningless motion. The earth, the moon and the sun's graceful and eternal movement are all timed by the One who guides us all. There is always a rhyme and reason for everything.
