A Christmas angel hovering among the stars.
I love the way my wife decorates our house for Christmas. This year she used spray snow and a stencil to create angels on our windows. (The stars are the lights on our Christmas tree as seen through a bokeh filter.)
The angel and star are key figures in the Christmas story found in the Bible.
The angel announced to the shepherds, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. Today in the town of David a savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord.” (Luke 2:10&11 NIV)
“Where is the one who has been born the king of the Jews? We saw his star when it rose and have come to worship him.” (Matthew 2:2 NIV)
