|inge-glas Birgit's Wish OrnamentHeart of Hope Ornament by inge-glas®|
Handcrafted in Germany by inge glass, 4½" tall. Hand signed by Birgit Müller-Blech. Introduced 2006.
|Includes the following poem:|
- paraphrase of 1 Corinthians 13
If I decorate my house perfectly with plaid bows, strands of twinkling lights and shiny balls, but do not show love to my family, I'm just another decorator.
If I slave away in the kitchen, baking dozens of Christmas cookies, preparing gourmet meals and arranging a beautifully adorned table at mealtime, but do not show love to my family, I'm just another cook.
If I work at the soup kitchen, carol in the nursing home and give all that I have to charity, but do not show love to my family, it profits me nothing.
If I trim the spruce with shimmering angels and crocheted snowflakes, attend a myriad of holiday parties and sing in the choir's cantata but do not focus on Christ, I have missed the point.
Love stops the cooking to hug the child.
Love sets aside the decorating to kiss the spouse.
Love is kind (Shortened here to conserve space...).

Each mouth-blown ornament is handpainted and beautifully gift-boxed. Birgit Müller-Blech has personally signed each ornament!|
