Had a very early hospital call this a.m. Got to DesPeres Hospital just after 5. And there above the hospital, the stars were shining. They were positively shimmering in the crisp air. I wanted to stop right there and break out into "Creator of the Stars of Night!" but I was already a few minutes later than I had intended. On the way home, though, another joy: to watch the sun leap up. We have trees in the way here at the house, so it peaks through them first. But out on the open highway there was nothing to block it. It shone with vigor - not a cloud in the sky. "The day from on high shall dawn upon us to shine on those who sit in darkness and the shadow of death." Such matchless beauty in each one. God made them for signs. Signs point to something beyond themselves, and so do the stars and the sun. They point us to Him who is Uncreated Light of Light and who shone among us the light of His love to call us to an eternal home with Him!
