Tonight was the night we hung the star on the barn. It's a big deal for me -- probably bigger than the Christmas tree, at least for me. We went up and found the old star in disrepair and had to take it down and bring it home for a light make-over. Once repaired, Hubby and I went back up to the Big Shed, hung it up, and plugged it in. Immediately my heart began to sing the verse from The First Noel....
They looked up and saw a star
Shining in the East beyond them far
And to the earth it gave great light
And so it continued both day and night.
Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel
Born is the King of Israel!
It's not a fancy star by any means, and it's not located on a busy street or a super highway, but those who pass by on our lonely gravel road will see its light shining out from the darkness. I hope they think about the Star that pointed to Jesus, and I hope it thrills their hearts as much as it does my own.
