This piece captures the moment the world looked up into the heavens and saw the sign of Christ’s birth. What a marvel that must have been to behold. Now in modern times, we celebrate Christmas by placing a star atop our Christmas trees. I often look up at the heavens at night when I pray, always wondering if I am looking at the Star in the East that ushered in the birth of our Lord and Savior.
The Bible - New Testament: Matthew 2:9-10
9 When they had heard the king, they departed; and, lo, the star, which they saw in the east, went before them, till it came and stood over where the young child was. 10 When they saw the star, they rejoiced with exceeding great joy.
