Falling Stars



Falling stars don’t follow any pattern
They fall any direction they want.
Perhaps it’s God cleaning up the firmament, universe.
Protection.

Falling stars don’t have a mind set,
To fall in a predetermined direction.
But still their predilection must be predetermined.
Avoidance.

God created the universe
And everything in it.
Continually contemporarily creatively protecting.
Accommodating.

The eyes of all wait upon the Father
Whose eyes range widely to strengthen committed hearts.
Omniscient, omnipotent, omnipresent,
Love.
