Holy Week, Baby Abigail and Another Birthday!

22 04 2008

This is just a short post to say a little about a few things.  First of all,  in the Christian Orthodox Church–this is our Holy Week.  We have prepared since March the 10th for this week.  Each week has had a special lesson for us.  We had our Palm Sunday on the 20th.  It was an amazing celebration.  After our Divine Liturgy–we each took a palm and made a procession outside.  Our family won’t be able to attend the services each evening.  However, we look forward to driving down Saturday night for Pascha Service.  When it is over–we will celebrate with a huge feast.  We’ve been invited to sleep a few hours at the home of one of our church families.  Then we will drive back to Kentucy on Sunday morning.

David Web (my brother) has just written an update about Abigail on my recent post concerning her holding on to life.  It is great news and I hope each of you will check out his comments.  She is still with us.  Many prayers have been said for this beautiful child.  Thanks so much for reading about this little gal and praying for her. 

Last of all, I just had my 56th birthday on Palm Sunday.  I can truthfully say that cancer has changed my life in so many ways.  I had no clue a year ago the new adventure I would be taking.  Nor did I ever imagine that I would have started a blog.  That is so unlike me.  I’m basically a very shy person.  So this has been a growing year.  Thanks to all who have been with me thus far.

God bless each of you!

Yes, life is always full of surprises, some bad and some good. But growth in life comes when we finally get this message and realize that there has been something worst than this new thing we are dealing with and that there has been better times, so be thankful for this one, knowing that our loving Father is in charagfe of ALL that happens to us, no matter how small it may seeem to us at the time.
