The sky was filled with stars, shining as bright as they could, but with out a moon to help them, they could not provide enough light for me to see the perils that might be in the way of my feet as I left my secret spot, where I had spent the early evening trying to write a song for a program my friend was doing. He needed an original song, words and music. I had the words, but the music notes weren't coming. The tune seemed to be in my head, but I could not put the notes on paper.
I fought turning on the flashlight I had with me because it would take away from the brilliance of the stars. I needed to look at the stars. Instead of starting for home, I laid on the ground and let my eyes feast on the heavens. There was the Big Dipper, Little Dipper, Orion, and the North Star. The only constellations I knew how to find. I started praying to God, to help me get the notes on paper. To bless my friend's program that he might find success. As I prayed, I was still looking at the stars, relaxing in the grandeur of the Lord's creation.
The more I prayed, the more certain stars seemed to get brighter, standing out from the rest. I looked across the sky, from right to left, imagining scale lines, I saw the tune I needed, written by the greatest writer of all! I quickly turned on my flashlight and jotted the notes down just as they appeared in the sky. I dared not edit out one note, or add one note because who am I to change God's work?
