Twinkle, Twinkle

     Twinkle, twinkle, little star,
     How I wonder what you are.
     Up above the world so high,
     Like a diamond in the sky.

     When the blazing sun is gone,
     When He nothing shines upon,
     Then you show your little light,
     Twinkle, twinkle, all the night.

     Then the traveller in the dark,
     Thanks you for your tiny spark,
     He could not see which way to go,
     If you did not twinkle so.

     In the dark blue sky you keep,
     And often through my curtains peep,
     For you never shut your eye,
     'Till the sun is in the sky.

     As your bright and tiny spark,
     Lights the traveller in the dark.
     Though I know not what you are,
     Twinkle, twinkle, little star.

     Twinkle, twinkle, little star.
     How I wonder what you are.
     Up above the world so high,
     Like a diamond in the sky.

     Twinkle, twinkle, little star.
     How I wonder what you are.
     How I wonder what you are.

How many of you know more than the one little verse? I never even realized that there were other verses. It is a wonderful tribute that someone long ago pondered upon and then wrote the words.
Did you know that you can buy a star and give it a name? And you can do it all for as little as $14.95.
But you can't really own a star. They belong to The Lord. He created them, he counts them and HE gives names to them all.

He counts the number of the stars; He gives names to all of them. (Psalms 147:4 NASB)

They really are wondrous little things. There is nothing more amazing than a wide open, clear sky full of tiny twinkling lights. It is easy to see why so many of us can be fascinated by them. But they are not ours to own or to name. God has done that already. But I think He enjoys when we take joy in them.

God gave the stars to light the night. Each little light makes a difference in the darkness. Some stars point the way. 
No, you can't own a star, but you can shine like one.
Do everything without complaining or arguing, so that you may be innocent and pure as God's perfect children, who live in a world of corrupt and sinful people. You must shine among them like stars lighting up the sky, (Philippians 2:14, 15 GNB)
