I want to thank everyone who has prayed for me during the last few months. In particular, I'm grateful for the responses to my worries about changing to a new university.
I just thought I ought to thank everyone here, because the culmination of my learning here (at least, to my perspective) is that, now I understand Orthodoxy better, my partner' priest is very happy to plan our wedding.
Because we are living together, my partner's priest has kindly offered to bless our home and to perform the betrothal ceremony that is often part of the wedding ceremony, so that we can look forward to the actual wedding in a happy state. So - I am feeling so happy, and so grateful for all the prayers previously offered by people here. I am so sure that these prayers have played a large part in getting me to this point, so thank you so much.
God bless you all,
