Saturday night...just after midnight I made my way to our little patio and made myself comfortable in the chilly night air. There is something about the sky at night that calls to you to sit and and take it all in. Within minutes I was delighted to see meteors streaking across the sky.
At one point the biggest meteor I have ever seen crossed the sky and I exclaimed rather loudly... That's awesome!! Thank goodness our neighbors are family and don't mind my crazy. ;)
I remembered that I had written before of my love of God's creation and the night sky after watching a meteor show several years ago...so I went back and re-read them....and found one that my heart needed to read.
I am feeling myself become bitter at times. A hard edge to my heart that scares me. I will fight that with everything I have... and this post is a reminder... beauty will come. The waiting is hard...but beauty will come.

As I sat there and looked up into the night sky I heard the beautiful night music all around.
The last time I had done this it was late autumn and it was quiet.
As my eyes began to adjust to the darkness I began to see more and more stars.
The sky soon was full of beautiful points of light.
As I sat there waiting to see if I was going to get to see some of the shooting stars (meteors from the perseids shower) I pondered something.
I wondered if God made it so that we could not see all the stars right away.
That we had to sit.
And slowly they would be revealed to us.
I realized that the night sky is a lot like His plans.
We may be able to see small glimpses of it. Just like the stars. But we have to also sit.
And slowly He reveals them to us.
The best part is... sometimes He sends us a bright shooting star...to remind us to stay the course.
Beautiful things are coming.
