Missing the point

I love to look at the stars – I go out into the back garden and simply stand there looking heavenward. I think the neighbours realized I was a tad odd years back! A couple of years ago on a holiday in France with friends it was pointed out to me that satellites could be seen orbiting and Big Al and I lay on loungers at midnight searching the sky, spotting two that night. Since then I have often stood looking upwards wondering what direction is best to look for that ‘wandering star’.

One night it hit me – I was gazing at the glory and majesty of space, looking for a manufactured clump of metal, to say ‘wow, a satellite’. Woman dear, how stupid can you be!!!?

Coming up to Christmas I have often longed that that warm glow of expectancy that I had many years ago (or is it just nostalgia?). But again I’m looking for something we’ve made (the smells, sounds, atmosphere) when I should be looking beyond to the Maker.

    Be not too hard. Is it not miraculous indeed that man can throw his ball across the heavens? No comparison to stars and meteors I agree. But I take the magic wherever it breaks through. When it is the imitation star of some over funded space boys toys, I still say enjoy it all. Its just a different mriacle.
