A Trail of Stars

I apologize to those who have already seen this post on Facebook or Linkedin. My website wasn’t working last week. It’s back up now so I wanted to post it here. Problem is, I don’t know how to stop the automatic feed to Linked In and Facebook. I think this blog can be read twice to help you remember its message.

Your Trail of Stars

My sister, Sharon, sent the following quote by Donna Ashworth. It touched my heart. I’m passing it on to all of you. I’ve added the thoughts this quote has inspired within me.

“If every single person who has liked you in your lifetime were to light up on a map, it would create the most glitteringly beautiful network you could imagine. Throw in the strangers you’ve been kind to, the people you’ve made laugh or inspired along the way and that star bright network of yours would be an impressive sight to behold.

You’re so much more than you than you think you are. You have done so much more than you realize. You’re trailing a bright pathway that you don’t even know about. What a thing. What a thing indeed.” (written by Donna Ashworth)

I read Donna’s words and imagined a star-filled sky on a clear night. Wow, leaving a trail of stars behind us. Together we are lighting up the world.

On a dreary November day, or anytime, imagine your own starry trail. There are people, grocery store clerks, doctors, children, family members, neighbours, a host of people who have received your light. Everyday, we offer thank you’s, smiles, hugs, praise, and more. God makes it so easy to spread God’s light. We’re already doing it. We are all trailing a bright pathway behind us. That’s amazing. Always remember, always know, you give light. You light up the world.

    Thank you for your light and the joy I experience when I read your posts. What a beautiful thought … to think that we can leave a trail of stars for others!

    I thought it was a lovely metaphor too. I’m holding the thought close to my heart. I hope you do the same as we enter this Christimas season, and return to our Christmas story and the star that led people to Jesus.
