💫 ❤️ Not Enough Stars 💖

🌞 “I like to play with the stars,” a little girl told her pastor one day when he came to visit her. She was confined to bed because of a severe spinal deformity, and her bed was positioned so that she had a good view of the sky. She wanted it that way so she could see the stars. “I wake up a lot at night and can’t get back to sleep,” she told the minister, “and that’s when I play with the stars.”

🙇‍♀️ Her pastor, curious about what she meant by that, asked, “How do you play with the stars?” The child answered, “I pick out one and say, ‘That’s Mommy.’ I see another and say, ‘That’s Daddy.’ And I just keep on naming the stars after people and things I’m thankful for—my brothers and sisters, my doctor, my friends, my dog.” And on and on she went, until at last she exclaimed, “But there just aren’t enough stars to go around!”

🙇‍♂️ 🙇‍♂️ Do you ever feel that way when you think about the many blessings God has showered on you ? Of course, you could never name all your physical, spiritual, temporal, and eternal blessings. But from time to time, it’s good to remember with gratitude His many gifts. As you do, like that little girl, you’ll feel like exclaiming, “There just aren’t enough stars to go around !”

Thanks, O God, for boundless mercy
From Thy gracious throne above;
Thanks for every need provided
From the fullness of Thy love! – Storm

Thankfulness begins with a good memory.

🎊 Stay Blessed My Friend 😊 🌹
