Starry starry night…

God has called each star by name. Psalm 147:4

While strolling along this colorful artisan market on this beautiful island,

I stumbled upon the following quote:

“I don’t promise you the stars. But, I will surely promise you that I will be there by your side, always and forever”

Aww… how sweet!

On a camping trip at this desert-land that boasted its awesome site of stars watching, I decided to do an all-night star gazing marathon.

As I gazed into the night sky searching for twinkling diamonds, I spotted one or two of them appearing from the sky.

Then in a twinkling of an eye, the whole sky was shimmering with bright lights.

It was a fascinating sight to watch and I refused my eyes neither rest nor blink…

But then the next minute when I opened my eyes, it was already broad daylight…

I think I must have drifted off to sleep under that magical star-studded sky!

Recently on a red eye flight,

I couldn’t fall asleep so I peeked out at the window.

To my amazement, there were thousands upon thousands of crystal clear stars dangling from the sky,

I have done star-gazing before, but never from this altitude on the airplane.

Stars were glittering at my eye level and below the horizon.

They were liked divine-made-chandelier, it was magical!

Star gazing often reminds me of Abraham’s encounter with God.

When Abraham grumbled to God about not having an offspring,

God took him outside the tent and said,

“Look up at the sky and count the stars—

if indeed you can count them… so shall your offspring be!”

God, the Jehovah Jireh, later blessed Abraham with descendants,

as numerous as the stars in the sky and as the sand on the seashore!

Tonight on yet another camping venture,

a few of us decided to hang out on this boardway,

on this chilling and starry night,

in stillness and in wonder,

for the sheer joy of stargazing!
