I lit all my candles yesterday evening
in prayer for my Grandma's surgery
(have not heard yet about it)
I lit the candles and had to leave the room
for a minute
and was overwhelmed,
by the brightness of the candle light,
the beauty and colour of the icons.
While I did not convert merely because of beauty
I can understand why some of my protestant friends
would think otherwise.
Once such beauty is seen,
how can one stay away?!
