On a whim, I picked up Song of the Stars at our local Christian bookstore yesterday. It is written by Sally Lloyd-Jones, the same author as The Jesus Storybook Bible (our very favorite children’s Bible), so I knew I would love it!
The book starts off talking about the wind rustling, creatures stirring, declaring “It is time!” Throughout the book, the various names for Jesus are used (King of Kings, Light of the World, Prince of Peace, the Bright and Morning Star) in beautiful prose.
Towards the end, it captures the scene with the shepherds, the manger, and finally baby Jesus with his mother. The very last line captures it perfectly…
“Heaven’s Son, sleeping under the stars that He made.”
Be on the lookout for Song of the Stars in the coming week…I’m sure it will be on sale after Christmas. It’s not only a beautiful book for Christmas, but any time of the year where we wish to talk about the birth of Christ!
