A World of Storybook Charm • Robt Charles Heitmann

ROBERT CHARLES HEITMANN……. creator of dioramas…….based on fairy tales.  30 of his creations were donated to HOUSING WORKS thrift shop.  I purchased 4 of them and displayed them in my apartment  for Christmas.  All of my guests [me too] have been mesmerized by their charm.

THE FIRST CENSUS

STAINED GLASS WINDOWS……..in NYC…………tell the Christmas story beautifully.

LUKE 2:1  And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from

Caesar Agustus that all the world should be TAXED.

Joseph and Mary left Gallilee….and traveled to Judea.

And Mary was pregnant with Jesus.

He was wrapped in a swaddle and laid in a manger.

And a child sings for you……….sweetly

Ave Maria – YouTube

Joseph was of the house and lineage of David.

An Angel broke the good news to Mary.

The shepherds left their fields to see the Christ child.

The Holy Family.

The Wisemen came from afar………actually it took them two years to get there.

And so the first Census began………..thanks to Caesar Agustus.
