Even in the middle of Lent we get glimpses of the Resurrection! I love it so much! This is late Sunday evening because I just got back from an anniversary camping trip. I posted on Thursday that it was our 27th wedding anniversary. My hubby and I had a beautiful trip to a lake just… Continue reading Resurrection Reminder!
What a glorious spring day yesterday! I had some fun weeding the herb garden yesterday and exploring the budding flowers and trees! I loved it! Here is our beautiful reminder of the resurrection today! Have a very blessed Sunday!
Happy Resurrection Sunday to you all! I know this is late, but somehow, over the last few days it completely slipped my mind to get this post ready and scheduled. We did get to see my father-in-law for the first time in over a year so that made for an exciting last few days. It… Continue reading Sunday Reminder
This Sunday, the hymn that I chose to share with you as our Resurrection Reminder actually comes from the Lenten Triodion. This hymn is so vivid. Make us worthy to receive Thy light, for we sing praises to thy glorious Resurrection! Blessed Sunday to you all!
This photo was taken one week ago as I visited my daughter in Maryland. We visited the battlefield of Manassas on a clear, bright day. This tree was alone, tall, and strong against the brilliant blue sky. It struck me with awe and I stood for a long time taking it in. Scenes like this… Continue reading Glory to Thy Resurrection

It was a crisp, sunny… Continue reading Praise and Worship the Word

During this preparation period we get to sing some beautiful hymns, as we do in Great Lent as well.

Saturday evenings are set aside for the Vespers service in preparation for Divine Liturgy on Sunday mornings. Last night the service was canceled at the Church due to inclement weather, so we read and sang this service in our home. Inclement weather, but beautiful! We got about 8 inches of snow Friday into Saturday. This… Continue reading We Glorify and Praise Thy Resurrection
Each Sunday I spend time relishing in this beautiful fact...Christ is Risen! He has trampled down death, He has freed us from our suffering, He has delivered the world from the enemy's deceit. Some days I cling to these hymns to enlighten my world from the darkness that surrounds. To lift me up out of… Continue reading Come, O People, Christ is Risen!
