Lights in the Sky
Read: Psalm 19
BOOM! BOOM! As the loud sound of the fireworks was followed by a shower of colorful sparks cascading downward, Hudson grinned and Chloe covered her ears. "I don't like the noise," she said, "but the fireworks sure are pretty!"
The fireworks at the county fairgrounds the night before the Fourth of July was an event Hudson and Chloe looked forward to each summer. Delighted gasps of "ohh" and "ahh" were heard from the crowd as rockets whistled through the air and burst into umbrellas of brilliant, jewel-like sparks. Each time one of the fireworks was set off, the sky was filled with many brightly colored lights, making the grassy slope as light as day.
All too soon the fireworks display was over. Sparks flickered and died before they reached the ground. Smoke vapors trailed off into nothing.
"That was so cool!" Hudson exclaimed as they made their way back to the car.
"Yeah," said Chloe. "Those fireworks shoot up really high, don't they?" She glanced up at the sky, where the stars shone brightly. "But not nearly as high as those stars."
Hudson looked up too and pointed. "There's an airplane. See its lights?"
Chloe nodded. "Do you think the pilot saw the fireworks? I wonder what they'd look like from way up there."
Mom smiled. "I wonder what God thought about it from His viewpoint. Maybe He said, Quite impressive, folks, but have you considered the lights I put in the sky? They can be seen all over the earth. And they don't die out.'"
"Like the sun and moon and all the stars," Hudson said. "Fireworks are tiny compared to them!"
"Yes," said Dad. "And fireworks only last a few seconds, but the lights God created are always there for us to see. They show us how huge and vast the universe is and remind us how great and powerful God is--and how much He loves us. Enough to create the sun and moon and countless stars so we could have lights in our sky."
"And we don't have to wait to see them only once or twice a year," Chloe added. "We can see His beautiful lights in the sky anytime!" Bonnie L. Kinne
