I gaze at the starry sky at night, the deep blackness broken with the vastness of an infinite number of stars. It is a boundless canopy stretching far above me, darkness pierced by millions of points of light. The darkness can not overtake me because you have pierced it with your light. The heavens above show me your presence. No man made light can replace your presence. You are eternal, vast and ever present. Yet you are close to me, steadfast, my eternal hope. I praise you dear God for your presence, your love, your grace.

Then God said, “Let there be lights in the expanse of the heavens to separate the day from the night, and let them be for signs and for seasons and for days and years; and let them be for lights in the expanse of the heavens to give light on the earth”; and it was so. God made the two great lights, the greater light to govern the day, and the lesser light to govern the night; He made the stars also. – Genesis 1:14-16 (NASB)
