(Flowers from the Feast of the Dormition of the Mother of God
from last August in Michigan).
We are at the 5th week of lent.
The 5th week often has had very painful things in it
in the past;
I said this to one from my church and the reply was
must be because it is so close to Holy Week.
This makes sense;
Holy Week, as my spiritual father says,
is, if you were only to live for 7 days,
the 7 days you would want to live
and that these 7 days contain
everything needed for one's salvation;
(he is quick to add of course one needs to go to church
It is hard to believe Holy Week is almost upon us.
I have great anticipation for this week.
Meanwhile this coming week I will have to do a lot
of job searching activities.
Please pray for me.
