Sharing My Songs – “Follow That Star” 11/20/17

I was hanging my Christmas flag outside my front door. It wasn’t an explicitly religious image, but I began thinking about the symbolism represented: the evergreen tree, symbol of everlasting life; the gifts, symbol of God’s gift of his only Son; and the star, image of the star that led the shepherds and the wise men to the Child. All of a sudden I started singing, “Follow that star to Bethlehem. Follow that star to Bethlehem to the babe in Mary’s arms.” After that, the song practically wrote itself!
