Well, yes, it has been a year since I have blogged here. I have been terribly lazy, finding the simplicity of Instagram far less time consuming to my daily life and so by default that is where I have lived online for the past year. I hope to come back and re-inhabit this space, as I miss my blogger friends. What brings me back to this space? The joy of Pascha!!! Holy Week was a time of intense joy within our house, and as always, Holy Saturday has become a day that I cannot live without. But my joy continues with the realization that the Holy Fire of Jerusalem has made its way to our North American shores, and I am excited to participate in transporting and spreading the fire to the surrounding areas. If you want to receive the Holy Fire, go here and enter your information and you can help to spread it across the continent!
"Behold, the Lord will pass by, and before the Lord, a great and powerful wind will be rending the mountains and shattering the rocks; but the Lord will not be in the wind. After the wind, an earthquake, but the Lord will not be in the earthquake. After the earthquake, there will be a fire, but the Lord will not be in the fire. After the fire, there will be a sound of a gentle breeze, and the Lord will be there."
But Martha was cumbered about much serving, and came to him, and said, Lord, dost thou not care that my sister hath left me to serve alone? Bid her therefore that she may help me. And Jesus answered and said unto her, Martha, Martha, thou art careful and troubled about many things: But one thing is needful; and Mary hath chosen that good part, which shall not be taken away from her. Luke 10:40-42
