star gazing.

Watching the stars is something I love doing, but something I wish I did more often. There is something so humbling and peaceful about looking up into the vast sky and being overwhelmed by the magnificence of it all. Our days are filled with so much stress and many times we forget to stop and take a look at the beauty all around us.

I just went outside to walk my dog before heading into bed and took a moment to gaze up at the night sky - just one moment. Tonight there was not a cloud in sight, and there were more stars glistening against the darkness than I have probably ever seen before. As I looked up, I felt like I was getting a glimpse of the unfathomable beauty of God. The incredible complex and breathtakingly beautiful stars, galaxies, and planets were all put into place by the God we serve. And as we look up at those stars and admire their diamond like appearances, God looks down at us and says "you're beautiful to me."

That, my friends, is truly amazing.

 3 When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers,
moon and the stars, which You have ordained; 4 What is man that You take thought of him,
And the son of man that You care for him?

{Psalm 8:3-4}

  1. After you went to bed I took a moment outside alone with God and the majesty of His creation! There is NOTHING like Him and all that He put into place. Love you ♥ Mom
