Not What I Thought Would Happen... But May God Be Praised

My icon corner in my old apartment.

I packed up and moved amidst learning a new job.

The job that did not last.

May God be praised in all things.

I was so excited about moving to my new apartment.
My first apartment that was an "adult" apartment,
my first real one bedroom apartment.
I had it painted,
it was my dream come true.
Today, a year after giving notice at my old apartment,
I am giving notice again. It is printed and ready to be signed.
It does feel sad,
but it is temporal.
I still have so much compared to so many.
Today a miracle working icon is coming to the Cathedral.
I am going there to pray
and to vespers at my home parish tonight.
God is good to us.
May God be praised!

Thank you so much Victoria.
Yes, it is the same icon.
And Fr. L is in town; I hope to see him!!! :) I will be going to see the new bishop, etc. and hear Met. Jonah speak tomorrow. Am skipping French class to hear him.

I have been looking forward to this for sometime.

Yes, transitions are so tiring. Thank you so much for your prayers.

You and FDK are in my morning prayers.
