The Heavens Declare--7 days 'til Christmas

"The heavens declare," 5 x 7 watercolor Christmas card


"The heavens declare the glory of God; And the firmament shows His handiwork." --Psalm 19:1

Look up, especially on these cold, clear nights. Tired of the mess down here? Nothing new. The shepherd -poet who wrote those words knew that firsthand.

This is the time of year--eight days 'til Christmas--to look up; this is a year when looking up is even more important,  remembering whence we came, whence we are going.
