I signed and emailed my letter of offer today;
I signed it in one of my places of prayer,
dedicating this next step to God,
God's protection and the help of the Saints.
Yesterday was St. Herman's Day.
It was very moving when I realized that my chrismation day
(August 8) was a day before St. Herman's Day.
St. Herman is a large part of my Orthodox journey;
it was seeing his icon on the iconostasis at
that continued to bring me to his church...
even though my chrismation was not as his church,
as I had moved back home by that point,
St. Herman was right there with me...
That I received the job offer on the anniversary
of my chrismation (7 years this past Monday),
prayerfully decide about this decision on
St Herman's day
and to accept the offer today,
the old calendar day of my Patron Saint Irene,
is a beautiful timing of events.
I start August 29.
Right after old calendar Dormition.
This will be a real change for me,
a change for the better we all pray
and I ask your prayers as I transition to a new
chapter in my life.
Glory to God for His goodness and mercy!
