Nativity #12: Dansk Crystal

I'm not sure when my love for "glass" started, but by the time I traveled to Scandinavia (Sweden, Norway and Denmark) with Bethel's Women's Choir (under the direction of Mary Fall) in June of 1983 I was well beyond interested. 

It was then that I became more interested in specific glass makers like Kosta Boda (Sweden). One of my favorite things from that glass maker (in the affordable category) are the snowball votive holders. But, I digress. 

This particular nativity set was made and sold by Dansk. You can tell, if you pay attention to such things, that I looked for a display location in the house where light was one of the main contributers. Most of the sets look best with light shining ON them -- this one needs light shining THROUGH it.

I want to be more like this set -- letting the Light shine through me instead of always wanting the light to shine on me.

  1. You are a light, Ruth, and it is shining brightly through you!

    Thanks for the journey through the nativity sets. Joy and peace filled my heart as I reflected, through pics and words, the birth of our Saviour and Lord.
