Lessons from the Heavens

There are more stars in the sky, than grains of sand on the seashore.

The Heaven's are Your canvas Master Artist. The Earth is where You want to display the works of Your love!

(This video is 7 minutes long but worth the peaceful. Spend 7 perfect minutes with Your Lord!)

Well, preggy mommy was wide awake at the wee hours of the morning with leg cramps. So, my sweet hubby turned on the hot tub out in the backyard. Pregnant woman are not supposed to get in hot tubs because the high temps are dangerous for babies. So we turned the temperature of the water down and I just sat on the edge with my legs in the jets.

The night temperatures here in AZ are getting cooler but not cold. It was in the 60's and the air was crisp. The stars were so bright and there was actually a meteor shower. As I sat in the quietness of the night, I saw 5 meteors shoot across the glittery sky. At first I did not spot any. However, you have to wait for at least 15 minutes to allow your eyes to adjust to the dark. The strangest thing about observing the sky in hopes of catching a few "shooting stars" is that 4 of them I saw out of the corner of my eye..not directly. I spotted them with my peripheral vision. Being the contemplative person that I am, I had a thought.

To focus on one point helps our vision to least in the heavenly sense. When I learn to be still, wait, and focus solely on the Lord, He enables me to see much more than I ever could imagine. By setting my eyes on Him, my vision expands and my spiritual eyesight is clearer. Through Him, I can see many things. Through Him I can understand and have a deeper perspective of life. Through Him, I can see the hearts of others and feel their hurts so that I can seize an opportunity to encourage them. By setting my sights on the one STAR of all creation, my blindness is healed and I can drink in His beauty and feel His heart. By soaking in the Light of our wonderous Star, I am filled with peace. There was not much sleep for me during the night. However, I am happy I was able to have that quiet time in the beauty of the night as meteors danced across the sky like diamonds.

So as I focus on Him today, I expect to see and notice many things. And maybe I will not be distracted by trivial matters.

The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament shows His handiwork." (Psalm. 19:1)
