loved looking out her bedroom window on starry nights.
The sky was beautiful with all the twinkling stars up there.
She asked her mommy what the stars were.
Mommy said they were the lights in God’s house
shining through heaven’s curtains.
The little girl understood about God having lights in His house
but she didn’t understand why God would have curtains with holes in them.
It seemed to her He could get new curtains or have the angels fix the ones He had.
She pondered this a while;
but it wasn’t until her grampa died
that she figured it out.
The holes in God’s curtains are so the people who go to heaven
can look out and watch the people that they love who are still here on the earth.
