So in around a week and a half I shall be enjoying an Orthodox retreat, including my second experience of the Liturgy. I.am. ridiculously. Excited. Not least because my husband is, if not enthusiastic, quite interested in the whole idea. This is all the more helpful and encouraging because the weekend could have been a source of great friction as my eldest daughter has elected to be baptised in his church on the Sunday. I would have liked to have been there, of course, but the retreat has been booked for a good long while now, and the baptism decision came very recently. Anyway, like I say, could have been a difficulty, but it's not and he is insisting I go to the retreat because he knows how important it is to me.
Things have been much, much better recently, still a few snide comments, but we have actually had some positive conversations, and he was actually defending the communion of the Saints the other day. Just thought I'd update you all. Please do pray for us, as you are minded to.
