The last of the shopping, the final decorations, how many more lights can we have?
Watching the night skies when it has been so cold and the night skies have shimmered with stars have been amazing. Jupiter has been shining bright in the evening sky. How much brighter it would have shone on that Christmas Eve before Jesus was born as it moved towards an alignment with Saturn and the star Regulus.
A time for awe and wonder, a time to experience how large is the universe and how small our part plays, but yet for each one of us we are important to God.
Mary and Joseph would have been approaching Bethlehem so many years ago, the city would have been seen under the same sparkling sky.
Let’s journey together under the same starry skies.
