He Made the Stars Also

Genesis 1:16

And God made two great lights; 
the greater light to rule the day,
and the lesser light to rule the night: 
he made the stars also

I just love, love, love this simple phrase in Genesis "He made the stars also" Did you know that just in the Milky Way Galaxy alone there are over 100 billion stars? If you read this verse too quickly it might seem as though the amazing twinkling lights we all enjoy are an after thought for God. But I have read the Bible, and I don't think that is in God's nature. We serve a very intentional God. I believe he crafted each star by hand and with purpose. All of His amazing creation balances together and shows His great love for us. 

I made this fun entry in my Faith Art Journal using Neocolor II Paints. It is resting in my own Taidori Traveler's Notebook from my shop. The stars are from my brand new set of Christmas Stamps also in the shop. The stars are outlined using Gelly Roll Stardust Pens for just a little shimmer and the stars are stamped with Jet Black Staz on Ink.



When I designed these stamps I wanted them to be perfect for Christmas but I also wanted to be sure that many of the images had multiple applications outside a Christmas theme. I simply love the little stars on the pages!


xoxo,
