Last night’s moon was a blue moon, which was unbeknownst to me, a big deal. I seem to find myself surrounded by space fanatics, from my classmates to my brother, who is convinced that aliens exist and God created them. That’s entirely different conversation, but the moon maniacs did get thinking about the stars…
I remember learning about stars in science classes when I was younger. The brightest stars tend to burn out the fastest, hence why their lifespan the is shortest. As I thought about the moon, I couldn’t help but think about the night sky. How many new stars have formed? How many existing stars have burned out? And while God was altering the night sky, painting the moon and switching out old dying stars for new stars, I never noticed any of it. Isn’t that amazing?
Although AD is not a place for politics or fear, I will say that this: the next two days and the following two months thereafter will be life-changing as we elect a president and battle COVID. True to its nature, 2020 is going out with a memorable and unpredictable bang! Like many people, I’m concerned but at peace.
God is a wonderful starkeeper who provides us with a breathtaking view of the stars, every night. He does so seamlessly. without us ever noticing differences between one night and the next night. I’m confident that He will do the same in our lives. This election, economy, social tensions and COVID are like stars, big stars that are dying and quickly running out of time. God is replacing them, crafting a new night sky to accompany the new day.
