I have more nesting to do in my small home....
In the meantime, I thought I would share a small corner of my kitchen.
A few weeks ago my over the stove top hood-with-fan-and-light malfunctioned...
in the end it was replaced.
For light in my kitchen, I moved a lamp.
I loved it so much that I kept it there.
Here are two pictures -
these pictures do not fully capture the soft comforting brightness of the corner.
Real life is still greater than technology, thank God!
Nonetheless, enjoy the two photo tour!
First, Spiritual Help (Icon of the Mother of God).
Second, spices, pasta, oils,
garlic and onion
Third, pencils, pens,
scissor and letter opener.
Forth, vase with soup ladles, spatulas, spoons.
My sugar bowl and glass ring holder
are there, in the background...
Fifth, the lamp that lights up the icon so beautifully.
An icon of the Mother of God.
This is one of the icons
from my Church.
I was quickly taken by this icon,
our Holy Mother of Christ our God,
strong and peaceful - beautiful and loving.
I noticed her strength first of all,
with this icon.
I will never be able to fully articulate what I have been given
in the (Orthodox) Church;
the icons, such as this one,
show it more deeply
than my words can say.
For which I thank God.
