Palm Sunday was beautiful.
My Munchkin is here now!
This afternoon Mr Husband helped clean up our home,
before the Munchkin came.
Today is also the anniversary of my Husband's
+adult godson's falling asleep in the Lord,
so Munchkin (his son) and I did lots of prayers for his
+father at various icons at church when we lit
The Bishop was there and gave a really great talk,
including how at death Christ is right there,
ready to carry one's soul to heaven.
He spoke a lot about the love of God and of
these Holy Days.
It was very moving.
Tomorrow the Munchkin and I have many fun
plans! Including watching Mary Poppins!
Of course I have lots of Orthodox books he can read,
and tonight we read a Gospel before bed, normal stuff, right?
But I am glad to give him some fun things too,
life has enough hard in it and some joy and cozy times
are important to build into a child's life.
DV we will go to Bride Groom Matins again at night,
and light more candles together!
I am so relieved that the house is clean and that the
baking is all done.
Now I ask that God will help us honour
and live Holy Week...
