Waiting in the midst of sunshine and flowers

No word on the second interview yet.

Going to a job-fair like event tomorrow.

Waiting and uncertainty is tiring

but I am seeking to seek God.

Reading St. John of the Ladder's book

the ladder of divine ascent

for the first time,

for a book club of various church friends

who are reading it with me.


It is serious reading but is reading that can give life.


Speaking of life,

we had a prayer service at my church for the March for Life

that is being held tomorrow.

For those who may not know,

I live in Ottawa that is the capital of Canada;

so the March of Life will be through the streets

of downtown,

to Parliament Hill,

which I can walk to myself in less than 30 minutes...


It is beautiful that we as Orthodox Christians can

pray for everyone involved,

including the unborn child.

I often think of the beauty of this time of year

and what a relief it is for everyone;

but I am also thinking about how it can be


In the sense that all can look beautiful sunlit blooming and bright

but without the light of Christ

we are walking in darkness.

The whole of creation praises God;

it is the highest invitation that we can join

in this praise.
