This article (HERE) shares exciting upcoming event commentary by Dean Regas, Astronomer at the Cincinnati Observatory. Dean shares that to the naked eye Jupiter and Saturn will nearly be joining together – – “Jupiter with a bump (Saturn) on it” is how Dean described in a recent talk. Fact is, they’ll still be about 450,000,000 miles apart!
This got me thinking about “the conjunction” we have with God. There are times that individuals appear to be almost one with God; Sister Teresa comes to mind. Yet, we know from a previous CP post that Sister Teresa had feelings that God was quite a ways away.
To stick with astronomy metaphors, as we continue through Advent, are we in tight daily orbit with God, do we feel the height of annual winter or ??? May our days be filled with efforts to “close the orbital gap” with our Creator!
POTENTIAL ACTION: Make time to venture outside tonight, even if the skies are cloudy and/or there’s a lot of ambient light. Look up to the skies with glory to God in the highest!!!
Enjoy the day, filled with the Spirit!
