I forgot when I was trying to fix the pictures that I could accidentally
delete the text I already wrote.
So this is take 2 :(
And I don't have a lot of time to rewrite it.
I changed out the Pascha / Easter things for
Almost done with this
and I still had some chest/nasal congestion
so I am taking it easy.
I felt a deep sense of relief when I realized the church pews no longer
had the social distancing ropes.
And for the first time we had the bread blessed in 20 months.
And first time since pandemic that the stole was used again
for confession, such a comfort.
So I got some good news but tomorrow
I am saying good bye to a close personal local friend
who may be leaving pretty much for good.
So that's hard.
Loss is hard and loss is loss.
Lots to work through, accept and trust God about.
The tall kind of twisted shaped building is the
freedom tower (or one world building)
and now that I have read that book on 9/11 and did more research
I understand more of the loss that is seen where that
new building now is.
Thanks for your comments and yes, I know
I can still do my writing project but need to do it
in a better way.
Balance is hard but each day we can try again.
I was touched by hearing the verses from Ezekiel at vespers
about how God promises to replace our heart of stone
with a heart of flesh; a new spirit, a new heart.
That's what Pentecost is leading to.
May it so be, may God have mercy on us
and save us in this wonderful way!
God bless and keep you!
