They are truly an incredible blessing simply because each and every Sunday throughout the entire year we remember the Resurrection of Christ. We are in the Paschal season right now but when it ends in a week and a half we will continue to remember His conquering death, His glorious Resurrection on the 3rd day, each and every Sunday.
My goal is to stay focused on that one thing I NEED to stay focused on. That one thing which is the only thing that matters.
Christ rose from the dead. He conquered Death.
Life is hard. But Christ is Risen!
Fr. Stephen Freeman
Don’t ever forget! It is my aim not to.
Which is why I write and create.
I am weak, but He is strong. I need the constant reminders to keep my focus. The Church in her centuries upon centuries knows this about us. We fall. We forget. We need her to help remind us and she does. Each week.
I am an Orthodox Christian, a deacon’s wife, a mother, and an aspiring Kindler of Joy.
I believe I’ve begun to understand (finally), by the grace of God, where we can begin to find happiness. True happiness. My heart longs for a deeper connection to those around me and to creation. I want to feel joy not only in myself but to see it on the face of people I love and those that God brings my way.
Thus, begins my journey to become a Kindler of Joy. It is a journey, a path of learning and growing. So I’ve created my blog as a reminder to myself, daily, to open my eyes and find the beauty and joy around me. I long to share this joy, to spread this joy and to inspire others to become Kindlers of Joy. When we kindle joy in others we spread a light throughout this dark world. A light that is desperately needed.
Won't you join me in spreading this light, this joy?
