“I like to play with the stars.” When I was young I use to sit in front of our doorsteps at night to have a good view of the sky. I usually play with the stars while I am gazing at them every night. Sometimes I would even wish for all of my dreams to come true.
My father, curious about what I meant by that, asked. “How do you play with the stars?” I answered, “I pick out one and say, that’s my papa, mama, grandpa, grandma, my friends, my dog.” And I just keep on naming the stars after people or things I am thankful for.
Until now at my age I still love gazing at the stars every night. Seeing those stars makes me realize that even if I have gone through tough times in my life. Counting those stars I will surely count on and on. God has blessed me with my two lovely kids, quiet angel who is God’s gift to me, my parents, my virtual friends, my grandparents, how God gave me the strength to move on, and the life that He has given me.
Honestly now,” There’s just aren’t enough stars to count on God’s blessings in my life.”
Do you ever feel this way when you think about the many blessings our Lord has showered on us? From time to time people and circumstances come into our lives that made us feel loved, important and special. It is always good to remember with gratitude for the gifts that our Lord has given to us and have a promise to take care of them.
