Dormition of the Mother of God

In birth, you preserved your virginity; 
in death, you did not abandon the world, O Theotokos. 
As mother of life, you departed to the source of life, 
delivering our souls from death by your intercessions.
~ here.
We celebrated the Feast of the Dormition on Friday
and our priest blessed flowers,
of which we have some at home,
on our table.
So beautiful.
I love that this Feast is so much about how in 
dying the Mother of God became nearer to us,
not abandoning the world.

If people only realized how motherly she is, and how powerful.
