Some nights. You need to be reminded that the stars are still shining and that they are shining for you. For your comfort, for your light, to let you know that you are loved. Not just loved by the fickle humans in their flesh and bones and wishwashy ways. That you are loved by someone better, someone greater, someone Permanent and Stable and who's hands are bathed in Grace and Mercy. Who's love flows like the ocean tide but it doesn't reach just one shore, it reaches all of the shores and it leaves the shores with a choice. The choice to accept the love or not. But regardless of what the shore chooses, it is still loved.  Even if it's turned away and the waves move back away into the ocean, they still will love that shore and offer it second chances. You need to know that you are loved by someone who will Never Leave You.

* The first and last photos were taken by me. *

So, do you know who I was talking about up there? I was talking about my God, my Savior, my Redeemer. The one who loves the undesirable, the weak, the lonely, the lost, the happy, the sad, the sinners. So, all of us. Sometimes I forget to appreciate the little things He put out there for us. To help us, to guide us, to show His love for us. I shouldn't forget this. But if I do forget again, I will keep reminding myself and I will thank Him and praise Him for His love, for His creation, for His grace.

"Because your love is better than my life, my lips will glorify you." Psalm 63:3.
