Snowstorm
« on: December 19, 2008, 05:25:55 PM »
Dear All:

I'm writing from St. Vladimir's Seminary in Crestwood, NY, where I live with my wife.  We're in the midst of a snowstorm here; airport delays are bad, 4 hours at La Guardia.  We're scheduled to fly back home to Texas on Monday, but the forecast is more snow and rain throughout the weekend into Monday.  We're anxious to get home to Texas for Christmas, and your prayers for smooth and safe travels are appreciated.

In XC,

Michael

If you're living a happy life as a Christian, you're doing something wrong.

Lord have mercy! May He bring you safely to His country! :laugh:
Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

Lord have mercy. We had that snowstorm earlier this week; we canceled school on Monday, and it's just now clearing up.
