It has been a while since I was able to
light all my lampadas in the morning.
It's such a blessing to be able to do...
I've been thinking a lot about our condition here on this earth
and how so many things can throw us off,
even of routine things...
Consistency, constant-ness, firmness, resolute purpose,
stability, all are part of what I am thinking of
and that not many of us fully have...
at least if we are honest...
A bad head cold, unexpected events, a new
responsibility, the changing of seasons,
all can impact what we wish we were easily:
constant, not inconsistent, not
easily 'off our game' or derailed from a new purpose...
It's hardest I think about the spiritual life.
I've seen it in my life,
in the life of my friends,
we try to start something new or anew,
whether it's a more structured or consistent prayer routine,
or spiritual reading or trying to have balance of
or whatever it is that we are aware of struggling with.
It's a challenge for sure.
But not something to be dismayed at,
just something to keep at I think.
I find that regular confession also helps so much;
it's like one gets to start over and is renewed...
for the challenge of this life,
for seeking to love Christ more...
In other news,
I made the last plum torte of the season.
I hope to share it with Mr. Husband this week...
perhaps with some whipping cream...
