Twinkle, Twinkle….

THE CHRISTMAS STAR

A diamond shines no brighter
than that lovely Christmas star.
It shines in all its brilliance;
it’s seen from near or far.
A symbol of the Christ child
as He lay upon the hay,
It tells to all the waiting world
a King was born that day.

O Bethlehem Star keep shining –
give us faith and hope and love.
Keep our thoughts forever turning
to the Savior up above.
Give us strength and hope and courage
to do our best by far
And never falter in our faith
as we watch that Christmas star.

I thought that Christmas time would probably be the best time to share a special video that I captured this summer.  In it, Grace and her foster sister from China (Violet) sing “Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star” together.  Not long after we and the Stoll’s had adopted these girls into our families, I learned from Violet’s mom that “Twinkle, Twinkle….” had quickly become one of Violet’s favorite songs.  It had also quickly become one of Grace’s favorites.  In the months immediately following her entrance into our family, she would request for me to sing it to her before bedtime almost every night.

So, when I learned that we would be reuniting these girls this summer with one another, I knew that I wanted to capture them singing the song that they had BOTH learned and grown to love during their first year with their new families.  Forgive me for the poor audio………try to focus, rather, on the darling little girls ; )
