Morning Star—Not Superstar

Very early one morning I was on a plane flying eastward from the Hawaiian Islands to the mainland. The sky was almost black, with just a faint rim of light on the horizon to indicate the coming dawn. As I drew back the window curtain, I saw over the wing of the plane the brilliant glory of the morning star.

Many times during my holiday in the beautiful islands I had pondered a paragraph in Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy, with the marginal heading, "Some lessons from nature." The sentence "The floral apostles are hieroglyphs of Deity" Science and Health, p. 240; inspired me to translate the visual beauty of flowering shrubs and waving palm trees into a symbol of eternal spiritual qualities of life and harmony. Now the brilliance of the morning star turned my thoughts to the next sentence in that paragraph: "Suns and planets teach grand lessons."
