Almost to the Feast of Mid-Pentecost

My first blog post from where
Orthoman and I will live.
We had a great weekend.
Went to a marriage seminar
and enjoyed learning
since we're both a bit of
nerds that way.
In Canada we would use the word 'keener' but
no one in the States seems to know this
slang.  Which is quite the loss
of slang vocabulary,
I must say!

We went to a chapel that
had these icons at
kid level.
Loved that!
There was lots of beautiful flowers
and green trees.
I had forgotten how beautiful
New England is...
I am aware of the goodness of all of this
with the awareness also of
what a big transition this is
and how hard it will be to say goodbye
to everyone I love in Ottawa.
But I remember often Madeline L'Engle's book
certian women
and how the Alaskan people had a wave of the hand
that meant both
hello and goodbye.

I've been a New Englander pretty much all my life, and I can't imagine living anywhere else. Welcome!

I was hoping I might meet you some day...New England is much farther than Ottawa! I'm so happy for you are blessed! We have kid level icons at our church too - very nice :)

The child-level icons are wonderful - I think that all parishes should have them :-)
