It is beautiful!
Without light pollution, the sky is so much more vivid. On any given night you can see thousands of stars twinkling in the sky!
Today's advent devotional was about the promise God made to Abram... that his descendants would number the stars in the sky... that he would be blessed and in turn, through him, a blessing would come to ALL people.
When we think about the stars, about counting the thousands of stars in the sky, it can remind us of the thousands of blessings that God has given us.
Last year, our women's Bible study group went through Ann Voskamp's One Thousand Gifts. It was a great journey through thinking about the many things that we have to be thankful for.
No matter how difficult things can be sometimes we have SO much to thank God for. This Christmas, as you look to the stars, think about the many things that God has blessed you with and thank Him for them!
And most importantly... thank Him for His gift to you in Jesus!
