A Rose and a Star......

A single red rose means "I love you" while a bouquet of red roses means love, beauty, courage and respect.

Do we know the meaning of the simple things in our lives? This is a time for me to take notice and see the meaning in something as simple as a rose.

The other night I woke up in the middle of the night and felt something was trying to reveal itself to me. I felt a sense to look out my bedroom window and into the dark night.

I saw a bright star. Then I saw some other stars that were less bright.

What was the meaning of this to me? I stopped and pondered this symbol. To me it was a symbolic representation of the Spirit of the Universe, who set the world in motion, that is still very present and looking after me. It meant I do not need to worry or fret over anything.

The symbol of the star has been in my life the past few days. I've been emailed an angel giving stars away, songs on the radio about stars, and a children's book about the Star of Bethleham that I read to my children.

So today I think about a rose and the stars in the sky, and I set aside my worries, because I know that no matter what happens I am being taken care of.

The simple things in life continue to communicate this to me if I pay attention.
