Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star — Daily Meditation Moment

“I look up at your macro-skies, dark and enormous, you handmade sky-jewelry, moon and starts mounted in their settings.” Psalm 8:3 (The Message Bible)

As I type, I notice my wedding ring and wonder how long it has been since I’ve had a jeweler check the mounts that support the five diamonds. Twenty years ago when Glen gave me the new ring, I religiously had it checked a couple of times a year. I’ve gotten complacent–a product of trust in the jeweler who created the ring.

If one day I look at the ring and find a stone missing, I’d be kicking myself around the house for not getting the ring checked. Each diamond represents a member of my family–Glen, Mike, Karen, Susan, and Me. I could replace a diamond, but it wouldn’t be the same.

I love the metaphor of God’s creation of the sky as being handmade jewelry. Living in Arizona, when in an environment where there are no man-made lights, the sky-jewelry appears so brilliant that I almost forget to breathe. Just think, my family, everyone I love, and I are a gem as bright as a star in God’s jewelry box!

Dear Lord of the sky, thank you for the brilliant light that shines by day and night. Amen.
