Star Trails DV

A starry night (Photo credit: satosphere)

A few nights ago, we needed something from the local shops.

The shops aren’t far away and it was a clear night, so instead of driving there, I put a jacket on and walked.

It was a short stroll, just long enough to stretch the legs and look up at the stars.

Despite the cold, it was a beautiful night and as I wandered along, I had a rare moment to reflect.

I reflected on my place in creation and remembered that no matter how small I am when compared with the stars in the distance, I am loved and valued by the Creator.

I reflected on my lovely wife and children who share my life, my home and my heart.

I reflected on our business, thankful for the opportunity and looking forward to future opportunities.

And I reflected on this blog and my wonderful readers.

As I walked, I couldn’t help think that I should do this more often.

In my busy life, I don’t make enough time for quiet reflection and take the opportunity to be grateful for the multitude of blessings in my life.

They are valuable moments.

And all I need to create these moments is a walk, a starry night and my thoughts.
