and I were at a sleepover with some friends....
We had had smores earlier and were out on the
trampoline they have, in the dark, on our backs. So,
here we are, Melissa (16, now) me, and Nicole (4) and
let me tell ya, the stars were so awesome to look at so
we were just gazing up there. like "wow" and I get the idea
to ask Nicole to count the stars. And she raises her arm and
points her finger at one, going 1 and then a moment later at another:
2... 3, 4, 5, 6... she gets a little mixed up, eventually (about 20)
but it was so cute.
I dont know if any of you just love looking at the stars or any aspect
of nature, but lets face it: We have so much to be thankful for.
Psalm 136 reminds us, saying: let us not forget God, who made
"the moon and stars to rule over the night, for his steadfast love endures forever;"And from Isaiah-
"Look at the night skies: Who do you think made all this?
Who marches this army of stars out each night,
counts them off, calls each by name- so magnificent!
so powerful! and never overlooks a single one?"
Have a great Thanksgiving and Thanksgiving break everyone!
