I just don't feel like posting anything today. My mother writes that she doesn't think Dad even remembers, this year, what Christmas is. And my sister, Barbara, is in so much pain in her legs, and so weak, she can't walk and her husband has to carry her. She has a neurology appointment today and I'm anxiously awaiting further news of that. Your prayers requested and very much appreciated.
However, here are some other sites you may like to check out.
To see many beautiful and/or picturesque photographs of Thessaloniki, where we are, go here. You'll need to go to the archives to see most of the photos.
If you are a catechumen or a new convert, Christopher Orr has some great advice to help you avoid the most common traps into which we tend to fall. They're humorous, too! (At least I think they are.)
And if you are looking for some good reading for when the miserable weather starts closing you in your house, Deb has a pre-vetted list.
Finally, if you need a little humor today, as I do, the Onion Dome can provide it. This months's selections are not as good as some in the archives, so check those out, too. No, this site is not satirizing holy Orthodoxy! It's satirizing us, the Orthodox, and we need it. So enjoy and do not be scandalized. My personal favorites are the columns of the fictitious Fr. Vasiliy.
