Night Sky Mementos

If you are like me, facinated by the night sky, you couldn't have missed the three bright stars that form a straight line in the Orion constellation. If you are not a sky gazer, for once look up the night sky... You will be amazed at the tranquility it brings... Night sky reminds me how finite we humans are in the vast universe and it never fails to amaze me how mighty the Creator is for He determines the number of the stars and calls them each by name.

The three stars in Orion are very special to me as I have so many promises made around them. The first time I noticed those I showed it to my close friends and the three of us made a promise that anytime we look up these stars in the night sky we will remember one another! Same promise was repeated few other times with different set of friends...

Though I have lost touch with a few of them and have tried long and hard in vain to connect with them, to this day I remember the friends every time I see those stars ...  We have a beautiful view of the night sky from our window, however not always I see those three stars... but whenever I do, I recall the promises once made and remember each one of my friends...

Pleasant thoughts are sent their way... I hope the fun and laughter I have last seen them with hasn't changed a bit... I wish them good health and cheer and everything else life is yet to offer... I pray they find peace and comfort in the Love Divine when things seem heavy to bear...

Not sure if they do, but I always do...

For a long, long time, the belt of Orion has kept me company on my night journeys by bus.

In vacations from school, I would imagine many stories in the constellations I saw shining in the night sky, and Orion was among the most distinct of all.

Once again nicely written and simple and easy to read.

I also miss some of my friends and wish I had made a deal with them to remember each others.
