First Pictures are of a woman's celebration of her husband who was an
electrical engineer and died 6 years ago.
She spoke of how God (and her husband!) have been active in her life,
how even when she was a sudden new widow, wondering
what to do about mowing the lawn, a neighbour did it for a full year...
she spoke of how so many people came to help her and how
she was taken care of in her time of need...
I found this to be really encouraging.
Friday afternoon I took MANY pictures of Patrick's home.
I am not sharing any at this time for various (including legal) reasons...
My Husband is very busy with helping with Patrick's things
and was off doing this while I went through his home,
seeing many things for the first time,
as he was slowing down by the time I moved here and unable to
go upstairs any longer.
I was very touched by his Bible and prayer books, both
worn out with much use, over the years.
Patrick's house will be lived in again in about 2 months,
so we have a lot to do to make this happen and are going
to do what we can to help.
We are glad we can do this...
I finished another washcloth.
Pre-sanctified liturgy and the blessing of Koliva for
St. Theodore... on Friday night...
Today I finally was able to pick up the clutter around the house,
and make the soup I had been meaning to make!
Used this recipe but omitted butter/cream/chicken broth
and used a organic margarine, vegan broth and pureed the
soup when I was done.
I am dreaming of freshly baked baguette with this soup,
with salads for dinner this coming week.
I was telling Mr Husband that this Lent is going to be a lot of work
regarding Patrick as it is a responsibility that we knew was coming
before he passed away... 3 weeks ago this coming Monday...
So I missed quilt guild again.
I am not able to get to much writing on my essays at all.
I just have to trust God for the seasons of life that He gives us and
that everything has a time and place in life.
And that is the first week of Lent, already at an end...
