In the midst of a blackened onyx night where there are wars,

rumors of wars, famines, economies plummeting, pestilences,

earthquakes, and disease and the world spiraling down with great

sinfulness, despair, fear, and need, out of the Christ created snowflake

obsidian night sky, there appears for all to see the light-giving,

light-filled, Christ- honoring, hope-filled, illuminating star of Bethlehem.

* On June 30, 2015, the Star of Bethlehem appeared for all to see.
