Being a believer means embracing the global the universal because creation is much bigger and more inclusive than just one country or planet. The heavens and the Earth are a part of a grand design where love knows no boundaries.
Creation is a gift to all.
Our sun is one of 100 billion stars in our galaxy. Our galaxy is one of billions of galaxies populating the universe. It would be the height of presumption to think that we are the only living beings in that enormous immensity…Wernher von Braun
Last night the sky was clear and the moon was so bright it lit up the darkness. There is a cool beauty of the whole thing. Looking up in the sky to see moon in a sea of stars. Creation is awesome that way. It just seemed to make all the cares of the world go away if just for a moment. Think about how awesome it all is that we can see that majestic wonder just by looking up. Maybe there is something to be said about that.
This morning while walking the dog I looked up and saw the stars in the sky shining brightly. The big dipper, the little dipper and other constellations were still visible in the dawn sky. Somehow this morning it put some things in perspective. Once you get out of Earth’s atmosphere things seem a little less complicated.
The drama of the planet seems to disappear. It’s just you and the celestial heaven that is all around you. Maybe we need to look to the stars of creation to reset and renew our soul. Yeah stargazing can help you think about things in a new way or at least remind you things aren’t as bad as they might seem.
Wherever you are, look up to find yourself again.
