Poem – Faithful Stars

Well hello! Can you believe it’s already Saturday again? It seems that each weekend seems to come faster and faster as time goes on. Or maybe just time is going faster and faster as I get older? 😀 I don’t know, but time sure seems to be spinning by at a crazy speed for me… This week has been very busy for me, as I’ve been redecorating my bedroom. We’ve repainted the whole room, plus painted some furniture, and gone on several shopping trips, and we still have to put up pictures and nail shelves into the walls. Needless to say, it’s been slightly crazy around here this week!

So due to the lack of time to prepare anything else for this week’s blog post, I’m falling back onto another poem. I’m hoping to start writing and posting more of a variety of things on here, but I need to get the time to write them first! Hopefully I’ll manage to somehow capture that time soon.. 😀 Anyways, here’s the poem – let me know what you think of it!

Stars in Night Sky

 

When God created the heavens,

he stretched the vast expanse of night sky

over the dome of earth

and poked holes

in the dark

black vastness.

Then he sprinkled

liberal handfuls

of glistening stars

all over the canopy of black

light and dark

mixed together

like salt and pepper,

like diamonds against black velvet.

And they nestled

and settled

and shone out of the darkness

through the holes

over the dark

and silent world.

Now,

thousands of years later,

the same stars

still shine

like fiery diamonds

or gleaming raindrops.

Ever present

like our ever present God

reflecting his design,

his power,

his beauty.

As I gaze up

At the great

black

bowl of sky,

with the myriads of stars

clustered and sprinkled

everywhere

I’m reminded of:

How small I am.

How great God is.

And how faithful

he is

in his love

for us.

For as the stars continue on

night after night,

year after year,

century after century,

never changing

in their constancy,

intensity

and beauty

So God’s faithfulness will continue on

night after night,

year after year

century after century

never changing

in its constancy

intensity

and beauty.

For,

his love endures forever,

his faithfulness throughout all generations.

dark, galaxy, milky way
