TO BE A STAR

To all my wonderful friends who blog, who follow this blog, or who love to read, just a reminder that in order to be a STAR, we indeed must remember to follow the STAR.

No, I don't mean someone who lives the glitz and glam of a racy Hollywood lifestyle.

The gift of a STAR was the original GPS device that guided the wisemen to a lowly manger where our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ, lay. Can you imagine the surprise of the new parents, Mary and Joseph, when such royal guests appeared? There were no engraved birth announcements or previous invitations to register for a baby shower at Macy's, Target, Dillards, or Babys R Us. Likewise, no newspaper articles were printed and definitely no Internet networking media blurb to proclaim the birth of the King....our Messiah's grand debut.

As we settle in to celebrate the original STAR's birthday, why not take a few moments to count your blessings. Whether you are a published author, aspiring author, a voracious reader, or just a web surfer...remember, you will always be a STAR in Christ's eyes.

You are so right about this! I am a big believer in listening to the whispers that guide us, and, of course, they come from a force of love that is so much bigger than we are. Certainly, it keeps us on our path as writers. Keep up the good work.
