Be The Best.

2 months plus a day…

Tonight I take you back to night one.   At some point we tried to sleep but sleep was not on our side that evening so I sat in my chair in the livingroom and looked out the window.  We live on a little rise and framed in our window was the lit cross at the Christian Life Assembly shimmering in the distance and one light on a hill above the church.

That lone glowing light from a far away home nestled above the glow of the far away cross provided some comfort on that first night.

With so many sympathy cards coming our way in the weeks that followed, I was surprised at how many were different.  There was one card however that came at least four or five times.  It’s a simple blue band on a white background with a rhinestone star.  There is just one simple statement, “one star in the night sky”.  After two months plus a day, that one star is shining ever brighter.  The glow is being duplicated in hearts and minds from young to old as we all strive to Be The Best.
