Bright Tuesday

Christ is Risen!


Already it is Bright Tuesday!


Today I cleaned house


did laundry


dishes


baked a really yummy beef roast


with lots of olive oil, salt pepper and garlic


and ate it with a friend,


enjoying Pascha (the bread) and chocolate with


chai spice tea for dessert...


*


I am aware though that even in this season we have to stay


vigilant.


Life still has to be lived and spiritual growth


at least for me


is still needed...


we have to watch out sometimes almost more


during Feast times as


the hard times are more unexpected...




Cleo agrees though she wishes it were not so.

I have to get going on Ottawa job searching


and I am finding it hard to do.


The more one wants something the harder it is


I think.


Lord have mercy.


*


How are your post-Pascha days going?


Any foods you are enjoying?


Any struggles, joys?

I continue to pray for you as you search for a job. Our family has been enjoying ice cream and pizza :) Yum!

Coffee with cream. And corn bread made with eggs and milk rather than flax seed and soy milk. Substituting never makes up for the real thing. Blessed rest of the week to you.

I have so loved these last two updates ! I don't think I will ever forget the sheer exuberant joy of Agape Vespers with my church family, including my Godfather, God-brother and DD4's Godmother - what joy !

Christ is Risen !
