Saturday Snapshot — God and His Eclipse Gift To Us

The heavens declare the glory of God, and the sky above proclaims his handiwork. Psalm 19:1 ESV

It seems almost everyone has an eclipse story to share.  Whether you were in the path of totality or somewhere outside it, it was an epic event.

While the eclipse was visible across all of North America, it passed directly through 14 states, allowing people to witness 100% totality — said by many, to be a life-changing experience.

Unless clouds obscured your view, anyone in North America should have been able to view at least a partial eclipse this past Monday.

While Monday was a work day for many, staff and guests at The Cove, here in Asheville, NC, took a few minutes to experience the 99% eclipse.

Here’s a peak at some of us enjoying the heavens declaring the glory of God.

These are some of the ladies you talk to on the phone when you register for an event at The Cove…
