The Star of Bethlehem

So I posted last week about the morning star, short days, long nights. 

... and Jesus' birthday not being the 25th.

Yesterday my three men and I stayed indoors all day, chilling, relaxing, enjoying the peace and quiet of home, and each others' comfortable presence. 

After opening presents we snuggled up nice and comfy in the basement to watch a video that sheds light on the 25th of December. The video is titled The Star of Behtlehem. It is a documentary about the star the Wise Men followed. 

The documentary is a wonderfully interesting presentation of the galaxies, a study of stars and constellation all lined up with history. 

I recommend it for all especially right now as Christmas begins to wind down. We spend a lot of time putting all the emphasis on one day, when in reality the Christmas story took place over a couple of years period.

Get the video. Watch it. You will be amazed and educated. Your eyes will be opened. Meanwhile visit the website.
