In my water aerobics class this morning, we talked about our earliest memory of celestial events. I remember when the first astronauts landed on the moon. That night, I looked up at the moon and thought, “There are people there!” It was an awesome realization. I told my parents about the conversation and my mom told me about one of her earliest memories. When she was young, she looked out the window before bed and saw the stars, but one star was different. It looked like a cross shining in the night sky. She felt that God put it there just for her. So, she prayed for a long time for a little girl. When she was finished, she looked again and the cross was gone. She remembers the image clearly and has never seen anything like it since. I think she’s right – God did put it there just for her. I don’t know what she prayed about, but it must have been important.
I Found God today in a star He gave just to my mom.
