Star


The glow from the star beamed to the earth with a bright light!!!

Showing the way to a small quite town. It was leading those who were following to a humble stable. They came one by one to a dark, smelly, dirty place. In these humble walls they were to find the greatest gift ever.

Have you seen the bright planets near the moon these past few nights. It made me wonder about the star again...

Your playlist is very nice! I may be back to "pop it out."

Hello, I Kae from All My Blessings and I read your comment on Sugared Almonds and I don't like them either but these are terrific..if there is an issue with chewing them then I wouldn't suggest you try them. If you can ignore the consisency of almonds I'm certain you will love them. Try them at the mall and then you'll know for sure. Kae

see you there! said...

I agree with Vee, the heavens look so bright these last few days. A good reminder.

HI Mary:)
How are you doing?! Love the picture of the Star. I'm mailing the swap box tomorrow so you can open it right away and enjoy and use the items for Christmas. It sure was fun being your swap partner for the past few months and getting to know you better:)
Have a blessed day and weekend.

Mary said...

A wonderful post, Mary. Thanks so much for sharing. The night sky is full of bright stars on clear lights and they are so beautiful. Yet that star 2,000 years ago was many times more awesome.

Thanks for sharing, my friend.

Blessings,
Mary

What a wonderful reminder of the events of that time in history when in humblest of circumstances, our precious Lord was born as human flesh! It is indeed, a mystery of mysteries!

McEwens said...

Isnt that the truth! I was in a class the other day and the teacher wrote on the board... Are you part of the "INN" crowd or one of the "stable" few.
Loved that....

Is this the perfect beginning to the greatest story ever told! I've missed reading your wonderful blog-hopefully I can catch up on everything soon.

Wendy said...

I have noticed the planets near the moon, and thought about another bright star, too. Bethlehem's star means so much more to me this year as I struggle to muster up my Christmas spirit. This year, I find I am *seeking* Him, a little like the Wise Men did.

You know, I feel sorry for the Innkeeper. He didn't know then who he was turning away, but surely must now.
