Beauty, transitions and struggle

I love my ring.
I miss my Orthoman.
I will God willing see him soon.
We're having some challenges that we are
facing together;
it is wonderful that way, the together part.
I am still recovering from the very
sad news I heard
a few days ago
and my spiritual father confirmed
that it is something I will have to grieve.
I know we really are all longing
to be with Christ in Paradise,
where there is no more sorrow, grief or sighing
but life everlasting.
I am really looking forward to going
God willing to the monastery
late in the coming month.
It is really wonderful how animals
sense one when is sad.
Cleo was especially sweet today.
Vespers is so life-giving.
Christ is Risen and the world rejoices.
