TODAY THE WORDS are SHINING STAR. Years ago, my daughter and I would ride around in my little sports car with the T-tops out and would listen to music. We would sing along to a lot of the songs and it was a great bonding time and fun. One song, and it became “my” song was “You are my shining star” by the Manhattans (okay by now, some link to my age should be showing). This song has somehow stayed “my song” and my daughter loves it too. She sent it in a link not too long ago. This morning, this song was in my head and it brought my thoughts to how we should be a shining star to our spouse but also we should shine to our other loved ones. When life becomes difficult, we can be a beacon in the dark, a star to guide our partners in life to safety, and a light of love that is so brilliant it will fascinate our spouse. Some of the lyrics are “I will never leave you lonely” and this is the plan God had in mind; a lifetime together building and nourishing a family.

Over the years, this song has become a special symbol for me and my daughter. When we are together and it starts playing; we smile at each other. Our bond is a very strong bond and we make the most of our “star” time. We use our time to be there for each other, taking the time and making it shine as a beautiful memory. We support each other and cheer each other when we are reaching for the stars. She is definitely my shining star and I look forward to seeing her soon.

Now, for the deeper thought……God is Our Eternal Shining Star……if we look toward the heavens and seek Him, He will never leave us lonely!. I believe, and in my life I know the difference, if God is in our lives, our relationships become fascinating lights or starlight nights. The bad doesn’t seem so bad, the difficult seems easier, and the joys more joyous. If we turn our heads, hearts and souls upward to Our Master, we have the love as the lyrics, “So many have tried to find a love like yours and mine”. We will have this love with our spouses, our families, and with God. What a brilliant life we will have on this earth and in eternity. Songs sometimes have a message in them and even though this song is not a gospel song and is reflecting love between two people, I can find a spiritual message in the lyrics. We can be a shining star to our children, grandchildren, friends, neighbors and co-workers. May we glow with the brilliance of God with love, truth, charity and forgiveness!


Isaiah 40:26 ESV     

Lift up your eyes on high and see: who created these? He who brings out their host by number, calling them all by name, by the greatness of his might, and because he is strong in power not one is missing.
