Star of Wonder

 

O Star of wonder, star of night
Star with royal beauty bright
Westward leading, still proceeding
Guide us to thy Perfect Light

Beautifully rendered star, Ginnie... a real Star of Wonder!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Ray. I was glad it turned out the way I imagined it when I first saw it hanging in a renovated abbey.
That is gorgeous.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Michael.

it's a shame that it's hard to wish people in the service industry 'merry Christmas'... it's just not politically correct to 'love' anymore, unless it's being dictated how to love by the far left.
Ginnie Hart: I read a post on FB yesterday by a Canadadian friend who said "Please just STOP with the posts that complain about how you are not allowed to say "Merry Christmas" anymore. I honestly doubt that has happened to you. I have lived in Muslim countries and the people have wished me Merry Christmas with joyful hearts. Any posts about this subject are being used to manipulate all of us into feeling hard done by and to stir up our anger, fear, and bigotry. I will have none of it."

whoever said that is LYING, if i say merry Christmas to a checkout girl at walmart i get such a dirty hateful look, that it DOES break my heart... i won't listen to whomever said that rant about muslim countries, i'm talking about MY OWN BLOODY COUNTRY, and i live here and i'm not allowed to say it, unless i want a hate filled silence... so i will have none of THAT

This star looks like our Herrnhuter Star - a wonderful image at Christmas time! Merry Christmas!
Ginnie Hart: Probably it is, Philine, because I saw it in the Kloster Frenswegen in Nordhorn, Germany.

What HAVE you done now, Ginnie? A real "Star of Wonder"
Ginnie Hart: This was such a wonderful star hanging in the Kloster Frenswegen in Nordhorn, Germany, Lisl, when we were there a couple of weeks ago. I'm so glad it came out like I saw it then.

That's beautiful, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, dear Pauline.
Very clever Ginnie, YOU are the star. I love the way this appears to be bursting out of my screen and right at me.

This Carol always reminds me of my childhood when my brother and I would sing - We three kings of Orient are (although I thought it was 'Orry and tar'wink one on a bicycle, one in a car, one on a scooter blowing his hooter...
Ginnie Hart: LOL, Chad, about what you thought the words were. I bet we all could come up with our own such stories! smile Thank you.
We three kings from Leamington Spa
One in a taxi, one in a car
One on a scooter blowing his hooter
Following yonder star
Ginnie Hart: You and Chad are on the same page, Bill. grin
I see Chad and I are on the same theme!
Ginnie Hart: HA! Exactly!
What a beautiful star, you done right photographing it the other weekend. We sung this carol at our candlelit carol service on Sunday evening, a very enjoyable evening with Mince pies to follow!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Brian. Now if only you could have saved a mince pie for ME! smile
This is just gorgeous!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Robin. It fills me up!
Wow I would follow this star anytime.
Ginnie Hart: I so agree, Martin. smile
