keyword / constellation:

Simple and glorious moments for me come when I just stare up in the night sky at all the stars, admiring creation. I don’t see a whole lot of stars in OC (probably b/c of all the smog 😉 but I’ll always remember driving through Texas and being mesmerized by the star-filled sky. It is awe-inspiring. To me, it reminds me of a creator and how He commands the stars & the sky. So beautiful. Anyway, today’s keyword is constellation! I love all these wonderful star-inspired pieces. Hope you enjoy them too friends :)
