Above are flowers from the monastery this past weekend.
A lovely Romanian man was given them from
where they adorned the large icon
of the Dormition of the Theotokos.
I sold about 65 of my books today.
It was a new experience to let go of books
that had with me for
I just had to keep reminding myself
that though I have given away the books that remind me
of how God has worked in my life
and that He is bringing me deeper in
where He seeks to lead me.
The books were merely part of that journey
and that God is here with me now
and has given me a new chapter in my life,
where and what I need to go towards.
Am reading more of The Jesus Prayer
and am really appreciating this book.
I can't recommend this book enough...
I treasure these days and feel strongly that they are fleeting.
