Counting Stars

Thursday, September 7, 2017 3:30 AM

Look at the stars
Look how they shine for you
And everything you do...

For as long as I can remember I have always loved stars. They are bright, twinkle and are just so beautiful. I remember visiting my college boyfriend's family in the Berkshires where there is little to no outside light... you truly can't imagine how many stars fill up the night sky. Lying underneath a blanket of stars is not only awe inspiring, but humbling.  Similar to the feeling I get when I travel, it makes you feel so small, in a good way.  When we live in our little surroundings it is sometimes hard to realize someone down the street is having their own story, let alone someone in a different town, city, or country. Then to think we are so small in the universe! It is a scary yet super cool thought.  Our thoughts and opinions, though valid seem so insignificant in the grand scheme of things. 
Over thousands of years, the earth and what has been built on it has changed considerably, but the one sight that we share with our ancestors is that of the stars.
I find that to be so cool...

    I'm with you- space (and the stars) have always fascinated me. We are so small in comparison to the rest of the universe!

  24. Your words gave me chills, I love those moments where everything is put in perspective and you realize how small you are and how little you know, but yet how much there is to explore. And I've never thought about how my ancestors saw the same stars - that's such a cool thought!

  30. This outfit it fabulous, Elise. I love the start top with the edgy leather shorts. As for the stars, I'm with you! I get that same feeling with I'm looking at a sunset or right before. Some times it takes my breath away, as I sit in awe of such incredible beauty. If I think about the One who made it all I feel a warm blanket of peace and wonder at the fact that He is aware of me. Me. Little old me. Thank you for such a lovely post and as always, the outfit inspiration!
