to a fellow hubber, or the HP community, or a loved one, or the world, or God, or your self?
it would be.....
a jouney and a light to guide you,
Merry Christmas to you and your family...
and I wish you find the true light!!
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 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'
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.
Look to the stars for the way to your next destination and always remember that you are never alone.
To the HP Community: Follow your star...
To friends: For God so loved the world...
To the world: Our worlds are not so very different...
To God: Bless me today that I might be a blessing to others...
Merry Christmas to all and may the season's joy never leave your spirit...
Joseph: Mary, I've been wondering about one thing all night?
Mary: What is that Joseph?
Joseph: I thought it was the wise men that followed the star in this story...
Hey Brokeback Mountain dudes! Watch out for God's Meteorite of Wrath!
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.
the recipient of your card will surely appreciate the message.
at least you have something that you hold on to. and you can pass it around - that light
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!
Dan, I don't think it's corny, either. And I'm sure when set to your beautiful music, it's very inspiring!
To myself? "Lead the way frog ... otherswise you'll get lost in the crowd. And you know what they say about a crowd. It's hard to find the bar ... "
To a hubber? "Think of the star as the frog and the travellers as yourself. Only frog knows where the bar is ... @
To the world? "Love, light and may your path be filled with peace - now, tomorrow and always"
To the hubcommunity? "HubLove, write and may your hubpath be filled with cash, kudos and big fat cuban cigars"
to self: I can't believe it has come to this. I'm sending a postcard to myself...
to love: sorry, Honey, this was my only card - Happy Valentine's Day! xxx
to the aliens: We are watching you.
Great pic, Cris.
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?
Thanks. Um that's what I've been thinking about so I posted it up. To get some inspiration
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!
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
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. 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!
Hahaha there you go! My point exactly! Sure, I would be glad to have a read first - should make me feel like a publisher, receiving the publisher's copy!
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"?
Thanks for the picture Chris, I'm emailing it to my daughter as she begins studying for finals - good inspiration
I don't think I could do any better than PDH, The Rope, and Crazd...on this photo's message. Why mess with something already stated dang near perfect by these Hubbers.
Crazd...weren't you saying something about writing cards earlier...

Is it rude not to send a Christmas card to someone who sent one to you?

Mirriam- Webster's definition of faith is- Allegiance to a duty or person: Loyalty. 2. Belief and trust in God. 3. Complete trust. 4. A system of religious beliefs. The bible calls faith, "The substance of things hoped for, and the conviction of things not...

God is the Begining and the End, creator of all things, meaning everything! No disrespect meant here, how can some of us question this?Why is it so difficult for some people to see this truth? If you are a non believer in God or Jesus, what are your thoughts on His teachings? Surely the teachings...

What if the opposite of what you believe in (spiritually) happened to be the truth?What would you change if you were told with 100% certainty that God does not exist? Or if you don’t believe in God, that he does exist?

Hi, everyone! I would like you to challenge me as a part of my 30 day 30 hubs challenge.I believe a professional writer should be able to write about anything, despite his beliefs. What's more he should write in a way, to manipulate his audience without them know. After all we are talking about...
