I am slowly praying my way through this Akathist.
I love the last line:
O Lord, my Lord, my joy, grant that I may
rejoice in Thy mercy!
I went to the informational networking interview.
It was hard.
I dressed up, hair and makeup done;
card and cookies with my thanks for the person's time.
It is hard to always put on a brave professional face
but God helped me keep it together.
My Christmas tree with cards I got in the mail.
So cute and small, my tree is!
Perfect for an apartment.
