This nursery rhyme has been beloved for generations. It evoked in me, memories of gazing up at a star-studded night sky as a little girl. I waited for one to fall so I could make a WISH. The story is that if you wish upon a falling star the wish will come true.
I still love to look at the star-studded heavens.
NOW, my thoughts and my prayers rise with HOPE higher than the heavens themselves.
HOPE anchored to the Divine Saviour can take our souls beyond the wishes and desires of our childhood into that place of endless possibility which is a glimpse of eternity and the wonder of ‘expectancy’ of what our Christ-life can still bring us.
Rev. 22:16.I Jesus have sent my angel to testify to these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David. I am the Bright Morning Star.
Look up and see the stars this week and remember you are LOVED.
