For example I put up the nice corner in the kitchen where we have our meals during winter months.
It'seems this time of the year again when the smell of winter is near.What a nice change from the summer!
God has created everything in wisdom!
I thank God lately as often as I can for his countless blessings in my life!
It ain't easy because I tend to focus on my will and when things go. ..well not my way I get frustrated and moody.
These days I have become more aware of my stubbornness, my insensitivity, my vain thoughts, my insecurities.
The huge comforting difference is that I don't despair any more, I don't feel hopeless about my mess.
I ask God for help and guidance, I study what Holy Fathers say, I pray, I go to church regularly and I am surprised of the healing power of Orthodoxy.
On a more earthy note this is an apple pie I put together later in the evening.
