Countdown, Day 19: Stars & Skies

Silently, one by one, in the infinite meadows of heaven,
Blossomed the lovely stars, the forget-me-nots of the angels.
~~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Christmas in Bethlehem.
The ancient dream: a cold, clear night
made brilliant by a glorious star,
the smell of incense,
shepherds and wise men falling to their knees
in adoration of the sweet baby, the incarnation of perfect love.
~~Lucinda Franks


The heavens declare the glory of God,
 and the sky above proclaims his handiwork.
~~Psalm 19:1

  I wish you a blessed holiday season.

Oh, that computer! But these have been so lovely! I've looked forward to each one.

The forget-me-nots of the angels, I'll think of that when I look at the stars tonight.

Merry Christmas, Becky! Hurry back soon!
