THREE Great Lights

Last evening, in the Eastern Sky, we had a full moon and pink clouds:

and, in the Western Sky, the remaining rain clouds and brilliant sunlight were giving us quite a show as well:

On the Fourth Day, “G-d made two great lights; the large light to rule the day, and the small light to rule the night . . . and G-d set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth, and to rule over the day and over the night . . . ”  Genesis 1:16-18.

So, what was the THIRD great light that I saw last evening???

On the First Day, “G-d said, Let there be light; and there was light.”  Genesis 1:3.

But if the sun and moon were not created until the Fourth Day, what “light” was created on the First Day?

The Light of Knowledge, of course …

And I snapped those pictures on my way to an incredibly “enlightening” Torah study …

Last evening, I was blessed with light from THREE Great Lights.    🙂

Baruch Hashem!
