Celestial illumination

A beautiful picture by Ole C. Salomonsen.

A reminder to celebrate the heavenly host, however you understand it.

Maybe, just maybe, thousands of years ago, shepherds on a hillside beheld a sight like this and found renewed hope.

Maybe, just maybe, those shepherds felt, for just a few moments, that though the were lowly citizens of their time, they were a beautiful and perfect part of one universe.

May you see magic in this holiday season. When that magic happens, don’t analyze it. Just live it in the moment and appreciate it in that deep place in your soul that is the source of awe.

Peace on earth.
