Another week begins...

I go to a church on the old calendar
so tomorrow
finally
is the Feast of St. Peter's and Paul...
*
I don't really hold an deep opinion on old / new calendar
as I don't think in general that debating
this is worth my time;
I am a lay woman and it is not up to me
so I can be in peace about this.
I will say though that I think it is too bad that
there are two calendars
as it means a disunity of celebrating many of our 12 Feasts.
*
Meanwhile,
I am so ready for ice cream again!
*
Not so ready for the French test preparation
but have to work hard on this
and I have another
library job to apply for
(also bilingual; I can't get away from it here!)
*
I need a lot of wisdom for this final week of French preparation;
I did one of the practice exams and
did not do that well
at all.
So I really need God's mercy;
I am finding it hard to study and retain what I have studied.
*
This too shall pass;
I am really getting ready for whatever is next;
it's been over a year since I have worked as a librarian;
patience and waiting;
yet God is so merciful and has poured out so many blessings on me.
*
May God strengthen you all my dear readers
as we are all fighting our own
battles
and we must remember that God will not abandon us in
our struggles.
