One more time to Ottawa

Please pray for Noah
he is battling infections again.

My flight is tomorrow around noon.
I will not see Cleo until later September.
My poor Cleo.
She will be with Orthoman and then here
with a cat sitter visiting daily.

This week (old calendar) was the
translation of the relics of St. Stephen
and I have his icon
that I put on the buffet for this reason.
Also a lovely table top lampada
for the Dormition Fast.
I can't tell you how happy I am to have
this beautiful apartment and finally have my dream of
a good space to celebrate all the fasts and feasts
of the Orthodox church.
Orthoman and I have been working very hard
at getting this place in order.
I have not been sleeping well.
God is upholding me but physically
I am weary.
I will be without my beloved Orthoman for
2 weeks 1 day.
As I go about the apartment
and today when I went grocery shopping for
us to have some organic premade food in the house
for when we return from our honeymoon
I found myself asking God how
I was deemed worthy for such a man
and for such a lovely home.
The only conclusion that I have come to
is that I am not worthy
but it is God's mercy and grace.
Other than this,
it is a mystery.
