This icon is on my computer desktop. Oddly it's one of my absolute favorites and yet we don't have one for our walls. So every year I add it to the desk top and it stays there for quite a long time. A visual reminder of what this week and what our faith is about.
So it's Holy Week already. Wow- and I thought Lent was hard. Today has been full of difficult challenges- emotionally and physically, but I keep looking forward- knowing the resurrection is coming- knowing there is light at the end of these dark tunnels and God can pull us through anything. But there are moments, difficult moments, in which it is very hard to keep the eye on the One Thing Needful.
This week will be a light week as far as homeschooling goes. Really there are no lessons planned. Just a pile of materials.
Though these will be our focus.
And all the days go like today even these may not be consumed in the entirety as I hoped.
But there is church services. And there is Pascha. What else is truly necessary?
