Today a far away friend called unexpectedly. I grinned when I saw her name pop up on my phone. It has been quite a long time since we have talked. She has always been somewhat of a spiritual mentor to me as she shares her strong faith unapologetically. As we spoke, my heart was filled with joy and I got teary eyed. Just then she said she was welling up with tears and that’s how you know when your connecting with someone on a spiritual level. I was grateful that God reminded me that I have this kind of a friendship.
This evening, I offered to take my parents out to see the “Christmas Star” as I didn’t think we would be able to see it from our house. I thought my dad would really enjoy it based on his sky watching background, but he was too tired to go out anywhere. So after dinner I went out on the porch, looked to the Southwest as instructed, and there it was. I got out the binoculars and we all stood on the porch for a while observing the phenomenon. My dad thought that my brother would likely be viewing it with his fancy telescope set up. He was. And he made the time to facetime to show us all about it. His viewing screen displayed Saturn and Jupiter at their nearest point. We didn’t even leave the house and got more viewing and information that we had anticipated. I was so glad my brother made the time for us.
I Found God today in a spiritual and astronomical connection.
