the stars

The stars last night were brilliant. After several days of rain and tremendous wind, it was refreshing to look up into the black sky with twinkling lights. It made me feel pretty small, but at the same time, immensely grateful. Can anyone looks at the stars and not wonder? I think the sense of wonder is a good attribute to foster. I remember when my granddaughters were toddlers, going places and doing things with them was such a joy. Everything looked more exciting through their eyes. Things I normally walked by, unseeing, were occasions for stopping and exclaiming over. Even the dust motes floating in the air made eyes sparkle. I want to recapture that wonder and brightness of seeing things anew. I never want to tire of gazing at the stars to marvel at the vastness of the universe.

About dmdubay

Since retiring from Northwest Airlines and moving to the Pacific Northwest, I have more time to devote to writing. My first novel, "Tales of Two Sisters" was published over a year ago. I have been writing poetry for a long time and am attempting to collate my poetry into a short book, with pictures. A sequel to "Tales of Two Sisters" should be getting closer to completion soon. Gardening and tending the vineyard take a lot of time in the summer. Even though I love the outdoors, these activities do cut down on my writing. So I appreciate that wintertime allows me time to write. Writing, for me, is what brings things into focus and helps me to make sense of the things that life brings. It is a gift to me and I hope that it will be to you also.

    I 100% agree!! I remember that, too, and try to foster that sense of wonder in the kids even now. They are often a reminder to me of our heavenly natures.
