To Take Notice

http://theperpetualvagabond.files.wordpress.com/2012/07/night-sky-5.jpg

I believe that there are greater, unexplainable powers responsible for some of the things that we do, and the things that are done to us, in life. ‘Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star’ speaks loudly to that. Stars are not always visible, and even at nighttime, when they are there, we do not always take the time to notice them.

It is similar to when good and bad things happen to us in our lives. We do not always take the time to notice, but really exceptional or really detrimental situations show us that things always happen for a reason.

Just like the stars, it takes us to notice them .

Twinkle, twinkle, little star,
How I wonder what you are!
Up above the world so high,
Like a diamond in the sky.

When the blazing sun is gone,
When he nothing shines upon,
Then you show your little light,
Twinkle, twinkle, all the night.

Then the traveler in the dark
Thanks you for your tiny spark,
How could he see where to go,
If you did not twinkle so?

In the dark blue sky you keep,
Often through my curtains peep
For you never shut your eye,
Till the sun is in the sky.

As your bright and tiny spark
Lights the traveler in the dark,
Though I know not what you are,
Twinkle, twinkle, little star.
