Thoughts for the Day

Honored to be there May 29, 2011

Orion was there.  Cassiopeia too.  They are dependable, always there, whether I go out or not.  This morning I saw them at 4 am.  The last half hour of darkness before the light from the east would dim the stars.  I don’t know many constellations, but I can spot certain groups.  Dependable.  Placed in the heavens in those exact spots.

Two satellites going west to east.  We depend on them also and I don’t see them very often, but I saw two this morning.  Thank you, for doing what you do… whatever that is.  Helping me in ways I don’t understand.

Two meteors.  Streaking lights in the fading darkness.  I always feel honored to be there when they enter our atmosphere.  Burning up, dying in one final blaze of glory.

I thought about honor, in the dawn’s early light.  Proof that countless are out there, doing things for me, things I don’t understand.  Thank you.  I don’t know all your names, but I do know a few.  Dependable.  I honor you today.
