I got out our first Lenten icon...
The one with the deep blue border.
St. Ephraim the Syrian.
It's from a calendar, a friend cut them out for me years ago
and I bought some coloured paper at at art store in Ottawa
and got the frame at the dollar store on Bank Street
years ago now and my Ottawa spiritual father blessed it...
Icons, as I've said before, do not need to be expensive
After being here since late May,
last week I finally found our Guardian Icon again.
So very glad.
Don't know if I showed you our new to us St. Nicholas icon
from Holy Dormition Monastery.
It's a copy of a larger copy of an icon that is in one of the
guest house rooms (each room has it's own Saint) and
this room was the first one I was ever in
when I stayed my first time over night, back in 2004 I think.
I remember sitting on my bed and just looking at this icon...
St. George, such a wonderful Saint!
I still don't get my lampadas lit everyday these days,
but I always have some lit and we do what we can.
Soon I will be getting out our other Lenten icons...
Lent begins this Monday!
