Magical Scorpio Rising out of the sea

Good Evening, God!

We are home. Back from our cruise to the Eastern Caribbean. And the most magical moment came — in part — because I came down with a cold.

Colds seem to make for fitful sleep. . . and sure enough I was up every hour. And each time I got up I would step outside onto our balcony and look up at the stars. Earlier that evening, my wonderful husband, Kit, and I had identified Orion’s Belt and the Big Dipper. But around 11 p.m. I noticed a bright “new” constellation low on the eastern horizon that I couldn’t identify. It turned out to be the top five stars of the constellation Scorpio. As the night went on I watched it slowly rise out of the sea. A most amazing moment when I finally recognized it.

Ah! SCORPIO!

I have seen the stars in Grass Valley where my brother and sister (in law) live. I must ask my friend living in the desert if she also sees stars filling her night sky. It just takes an absence of our human light pollution. Seeing the STARS stretches my mind and heart.

BIG! HUGE! UNFATHOMABLE!

Out on the ocean . . . standing in the warmth of a Caribbean night . . . I felt connected and embraced by these familiar stars. I am small, God, but I am a Part of Your Creation. And I rejoice.
