    Better Together Sitting Under The Stars......

    Sitting under the stars and being held in your arms and you holding me so tight under the moon light, and it is better sitting together. Sipping on some wine with your eyes that is sparkling like diamonds and the song that is echoing through the night as you twirl me around while...

    Looking up at the night sky makes me feel

    so small but it also makes my worries disappear. I know when I look up there and think about how large and amazing the universe is, I lose my problems to the stars. It makes me feel like everything is going to be okay. Even if I were to lose everything I own or worked for, I...

    Driving home with my daughter (in Illinois)

    late in the afternoon on Dec 26, we were incredibly lucky to see a falling meteor. It was an amazing green color with a yellow/white tail and it was pulsating. It only lasted 10 seconds or less, but it was incredibly bright against the dark sky. I first thought it was a crashing...

    I used to live in a house

    where part of the roof was flat so it was easy to climb on :) I would go up there every night and just lay there and watch the stars. :) Sometimes i go out to places far from the city to watch them X) The stars never cease to amaze me :)

    Look at the stars. They're the same stars

    as last week. Last year. Same as when we were kids. When we weren't even born. In a hundred years, no one will know who we are. But they'll know those same stars.

    I want to go to view the stars at night.

    There are places near me that offer free telescope viewing on weekends. Have you explored the sky through a telescope?

    So open your eyes and see.

    The way our horizons meet. And all of the lights will lead. Into the night with me. And I know these scars will bleed but both of our hearts believe. All of these stars will guide us. Home.

    I love just laying down

    and staring up at the stars they are so beautiful and bright. Sometimes I wish I could leave the earth and for up to the stars and live there. But that makes no since it's not even possible. But it would be so amazing!

    I love doing this. Layed down

    and just looked up, see the stars. This was always so calming and peaceful. I would do so in my front yard. I layed next to my mother, it was great. Felt so close to her. We would look at the stars for hours. Unfortunately where I am now, I can't lay in my front yard...

    I love to lay down in the field of my grandpa's place. I like to be alone and stare up at the sky like I can't do that in the city where I live. I love to feel free thinking and clearing my thoughts. No body never comes with me and look at the stars with me. It's just what I like...

    I love to lie outside on the ground

    and watch the stars and moon. I am always fascinated by how much detail God put into creating all of the universes. It brings me peace. It brings me comfort. It takes me back to a happier less complicated time. Also, it brings back precious memories of my mama.

    I love sitting out on a summer evening away

    from the lights of the town at our caravan light the barby get a glass of wine and sit and watch the wild life and look out at the starry sky . At home we cannot do this due to light pollution from the lights of the town .

    On bright clear nights,

    when the stars gleam like crushed ice on a bed of black velvet, I like to take my girls out to gaze at their splendour. We spread out a blanket, snuggle up skin to skin, look up at the universe above us and talk about what is happening in their lives. Sometimes it's serious...

    There is something about seeing a complete

    God's Angels

    When I was a child, I was taught that the stars represented God's angels who always looked out for us.  We didn't see them in the day time because of the sun but that they were still there watching over us.  When my mother died even though her body went into the ground, her...

    I like to so much that I have Glow-in-the-Dark

    stars all over my bed area. I like to look at them all the time. But I love to go outside and lay down in the grass and just star gaze. It's so mystifying and breathtakingly beautiful. The night sky always has me in awe.
