A Pentecost Birthday

 

In The Netherlands, Pentecost is celebrated on both Sunday and Monday,

a two-day national holiday, yesterday and today, so Astrid is off work.  Lucky us.

 

It's also my 66th birthday, which is what my Vision & Verb is about today.

 

From the Hammerfest Church, Norway.

Ginnie Hart: What a beautiful birthday sentiment, Jacquelyn. Thank you. This is one of those glass-tile windows, approx. a 12" square and about 6" thick, embedded in the wall. I don't know what those are called?
Peace be with you and Astrid always, Ginnie. Hugs... beautiful dove...
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Larry. I do appreciate that! smile

Stunning stained-glass window, somewhat reminiscent of Inuit art.

Hope you & Astrid enjoyed the Pentecost holiday, Ginnie, and that your 66th. birthday was one of your very best.
Ginnie Hart: My birthday day has just begun, Beverly, as I write this, so THANK YOU for your timely comment. Astrid has been celebrating me all weekend with a homemade appeltaart and spinach tart! smile
Happy Birthday Ginnie.....it is my 365th SC birthday today so we can celebrate together!!grin....but i won't be 66 until Nov....
I am glad that you get an extra day to spend with Astrid on Monday....or is that today.....we Canucks are always half a day behind you....and a whole day behind Vintage...i think lolgrin....petersmile
Ginnie Hart: Happy birthday to you, too, Peter, as I've already told you. So in age I'm only beating you by a handful of months. 1945 was a very good year, wasn't it! smile
Ginnie is a pleasure to wish you a happy birthday! The image is a beautiful symbol! Nice day to you both ...
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, dear Mathilde. That means a lot to me. Merci.

And happy birthday to my dear blogging pal!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you and thnak you, Kala. It's a great day to be alive and well. smile
1945 was a very good year Ginnie....the war was won and we were born....what else could be better than that.... Ohhh yes there is....you and i are friends.... 65 years latergrin....petersmile
Ginnie Hart: Astrid and I are in the middle of watching the "Band of Brothers" series, Peter, so I'm really paying attention to the importance of 1945. It really WAS a good year. And yes, 66 years later, here we are, meeting each other on the Internet! smile

Well happy birthday Ginnie: I'm sure both Astrid & yourself will find something exciting to do today. I drove over 300 miles yesterday to visit Charles Dickens's home town of Rochester, which has a fine cathedral & castle. But I paid for it last night: slept 10 hours!
Ginnie Hart: Our big birthday bash was in Belgium two weekends ago, Chris, because we're adverse to traveling on the roads during the holidays. We've had a great time staying at home this long weekend, relaxing and eating the good food Astrid has prepared: homemade appeltaart and spinach tart! I feel like a queen. grin
Happy birthday Ginnie.xxxxx
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, kind sir!

Great sentiments in V.& V. Ginnie, and a happy birthday to you. Just for about 6 weeks we will both be the same number and then I go to 67 in late July, oh dear, a recent survey in the U.K.was of the opinion that one is "officially" old at 67.
