you know me and my love of the stars... i always wanted to be a great meteor. speedy and bright. awe inspiring. my job done quickly in a flash of glory. everyone oohing and aahing and taking photos.
but a star rising night after night is so unrecognizable and yet equally as glorious. a more quiet kind of shining. more patient. more persistent. a different kind of story.
yet the same Author. the same Hand that placed the meteor places each star as well. may He be well pleased.
Those who are wise will shine like the brightness of the heavens,
and those who lead many to righteousness, like the stars for ever and ever.
