      To a fellow hubber: Keep on with what you do! The journey may be hard, but you have the skill!

      Likewise to the community, aside from those who do nothing but troll

      To a loved one: Remember, no matter how empty the path ahead seems, and how far the oasis may be, keep going, because you know you're loved, and you know that I and others are always here for you.

      To God: Give these people SatNav!

      Looks like it might be a donkey rather than camel tongue bit strange because they usually have camels on these things, thats what I thought when I first saw it!

      Anyhow I would make it a comedy phrase too, something like 'how come you get to ride the donkey while I have to pull' big_smile

      Shalom! Peace on earth and good will to all! Joyeux Noel! Have a good one around the barby! Oh! And in a green world frogs rule! Let's keep the world green!

      I think it is Joseph walking and Mary on the donkey. At first I thought it was maybe the wise men or at least one of them but, no. A donkey is fine. A camel would be out of place. Obviously a long way to go for a dumb census.

      Yeah well shalom pretty much says it all. "Live long and proper" I will also throw in. A Jewish actor thought it appropriate for one of my all time favorite television shows and who am I to argue with that. Besides, let us not forget that Joseph and Mary were also Jews with hope in their hearts on their long journey.

      Mary: What is that Joseph?
      Joseph: I thought it was the wise men that followed the star in this story...

    I wrote a song about the star on Christmas night. I didn't write the lyrics. Another friend did, but there is one phrase that gets me through....

    "And though I stumble and fall, I can hear someone call, 'Do not despair, your star is still there.'"

    It's probably corny, and I'm not sure what I believe in regard to God anymore, but I believe there is something greater than me in the universe, and I believe there is a guide that never fails. A star is a good symbol for that.

    Thanks, Cris, for this. It's a lovely pic full of emotion.

      Hi Daneil,I dont think it is corny, but I am happy you still believe in something greater out there...

      merry xmas to you

        @pretty: Thanks! Yes, I do believe in something greater than me. It's just that I've had to learn to think for myself and not rely on old superstitions and teachings that don't add up. I always enjoy your comments and the great things you bring to HP.

        @Cris: Thanks. You have a tendency to inspire everyone around you. That's a great gift. You're a bit of a visionary because of the gift you have with language--as well as other gifts. And yes, I do have something to hold on to, and I cherish it. It has come at a high price, making it all the more valuable to me.

      Cris, you just said all there is about Christmas in that lovely picture-"humility in nobility".I love it.

      Daniel Carter, It's not corny. You have faith not in something in the universe, but in someone, the Great Omnipotent One. Yes, He never fails us. When we stumble and fall, just remember those "Footprints in the Sand", and of course, your star.

    I think you can make a card out of this picture, which you can send to your family and friends. 

    You can also write a poetry or a short prose about the real meaning of Christmas. Everybody can be reminded about the birth and journey of Jesus christ. Then you can attached this picture when you publish it.

    You can inspire people through this picture by emphasizing that there is light at the end of every journey. You can relate it to your own journey in life.

    Have a great week!

    To a hubber? "Think of the star as the frog and the travellers as yourself. Only frog knows where the bar is ... @

    First thoughts:

    None are lost.  All are found.  The light within guides your way providing you hope, strength and courage as determine by your desire.

    Upon further reflection:

    hmmm.... If they can do it, so can I.  (that's for myself...maybe those on the pity pot too) 

    Okay, so, a little serious, but frankly I'm not laughing at too much tonight. 

    Cris, it's a beautiful pic.  What would you write?

        There is so much potential for this pic (as we can all see from the great contributions).  Personally, I like the more "serious" ones (maybe the mood I'm in).  Are you writing a new piece of poetry for a hub?  'Cause if you are, I'll be first in line to read it!  smile

          We're on the same page, but some of the posts are really funny. There's nothing on the back burner, I think I'm done for the year. But who knows? You never know when you get inspired again cool

            Yeah, I did find them funny too.  We're on the same page about more than one thing -- I think I'm done in for the year too.  hmm  But, who knows, your pic is now hanging on my wall....maybe some inspiration will jolt me awake in the middle of the night.  I'll send you the first copy if that happens!  big_smile

        Oh, I didn't know this was serious...ok

        Are you looking for a Christmas greeting or something more general...

        "Even in the desert, the light still shines bright."
        "The Light of the Ages still guides us today."
        "Follow your star until you receive the Promise. They did."
        "The Unknown? Follow Your Star."
        (Mary musing) "What is it about men that they'll follow a star in the sky before they'll stop and ask for directions"?
