November Gratitude–for Starry Nights


The rains stopped.  The sky cleared of clouds.  The stars washed clean and sparkling.  Tonight is a swoon-worthy expanse of immensity.

I am a mere particle existing within the atom that is earth which is part of the molecule that is the solar system, inside the galaxy nucleus, contained in the cell of the cosmos which is the building block of the organism of the Creator’s universe.

I’m grateful to be a very tiny part of something so grand.

Starry Starry Night --Vincent Van Gogh

  1. Wish we had such clear nights. Here in suburban sprawl we have too much ambient light. It is time to go out into the country and once again be awed by the diversity and multitude of the universe. Thanks for the reminder. Victoria
