O God, who by the leading of a star didst manifest thy only-begotten Son to the peoples of the earth: Lead us, who know thee now by faith, to they presence, where we may behold thy glory face to face; through the same Jesus Christ our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen
- Book of Common Prayer: Collects (162)
Crafting Notes: The boys did a wash of orange and yellow liquid watercolor on heavy watercolor paper. We sprinkled salt on the color before the paint dried to get texture (and it adds an element of magic I think). I cut out the stars free hand (but I'm sure you could find a template online if you want more symmetry.) The branch, one of many collected on our daily walks, is suspended from the blind frame with heavy duty quilting thread. I hot glued the stars to the thread and tied the thread around the branch.
A sweet reminder of Epiphany and a prayer that Christ will be made manifest to us!
