English: Pictured here is a long exposure photograph of the night sky. In this image the stars appear to streak across the sky. The effect is created as the earth spins along its rotation with the camera fixed to a tripod. Photographing stars present many challenges to the photographer. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

A map of glitter dust,

The gem amid the rust.

The bitter and the sweet,

In dark of night do meet.

Our troubles fade away,

With the last light of day.

The stars take center stage,

Once free from daylight’s cage.

The diamonds of the sky,

Do serve to testify,

The work of Heaven’s hands,

The fruit of God’s commands.

They speak of greater plans,

That far outshine mere man’s.

They point to life beyond,

To an eternal bond,

Of Potter and of clay,

The Truth and only Way.

So open up your eyes,

And set them on night skies.

This life is so much more,

Than what we’re living for.

These mountains are so small,

Within the scope of All.

A step back from the heat,

Will free us from deceit.

There is a way to cope,

So let us not lose hope.

It’s faith that keeps us strong,

When days just seem too long.

When pain has taken hold,

And wakes our fears of old,

Seek comfort in the night,

In stars that still shine bright.

There’s light found in the dark –

The fire set by a spark.

Verse Of The Week:

He determines the number of the stars and calls them each by name. – Psalm 147:4
