The night sky

So it has been a long while since I blogged. Now is the time to start again.

I was outside and looked up. The dark sky. Some stars shining, a sliver of moon, and the shadows of the Cascade Mountains.

I think back to when Jesus was born. It is that time of year. Christmas, celebrate the birth of Jesus. Family and friends gather together.

But back to the night sky. I got to thinking what the shepherds must have been thinking when the angels came to tell them of the birth. Looking at the Cascades, on this cold night. A fire to keep warm. On alert for danger to the sheep. When suddenly an angel appeared and started talking to them. Personally that probably would have scared me. They listened to that angel. When the angel was done talking suddenly there were a multitude of angels praising God.

Could you imagine what that must have sounded like. The voices praising God so wonderfully. It must have so great for those shepherd. We hear music and think it is good, but to have God's chorus of angels........

Then the stars. If you go out and look up you see stars, little and big dipper and all the consulations but that bright large shining star. A star that lights up the sky and land. That would lead people to Jesus.

Oh I cannot wait to see Jesus and find out what it was like.

Random thoughts on different subjects can be fun.
