That's a serious verification.  Button cuteness is a serious level of cute.
Vain existence can never exist, for "unless the LORD builds the house, the builders labor in vain." (Psalm 127)

If the faith is unchanged and rock solid, then the gates of Hades never prevailed in the end.

I feel like I posted this before, but, just saw this picture again. I'm in the white shirt at the top right of the picture, with a red tie on.

Some people have a tough life. Many years ago a beautiful young lady told me that I looked like a cross between Tom Cruise and Richard Gere. Needless to say, that compliment led me into a world of trouble. I've never received any such compliment before or since, and I truly thank God for that!  Bear your cross brother, bear your cross. ;)

I've only been told once that I look like a celebrity... when I had a goatee and bald head a priest told me that I looked like Walter White from Breaking Bad. This has done wonders for keeping my sizable ego in check  8)

Two my "churchy" pictures (hope I don't post in this thread too often in coparision with other topics).

The first one is from the Moleben served for the beginning of the foot pilgrimage from Warsaw to the Holy Mount Grabarka for the feast of Transfiguration that I've been participating in for 5 years.

The second picture is taken in front of the famous Serbian Orthodox monastery "Ravanica" - there are the relics of st. martyr Lazar. It was on the feast of Velika Gospojina (28th of August - Dormition of the Theotokos) - I was very happy that this time I could spend and celebrate this great feast in Serbia (you should see these roasted pigs in the area close to the monastery because of the great festival and the end of the fast and balcons with tables with icons, food and rakija in the villages)
Pray for persecuted Christians, especially in Serbian Kosovo and Raška, Egypt and Syria
