Glory to Jesus Christ!

I wanted to just let everyone know that have been praying for me in one way or another that today I was received into the Holy Orthodox Church. I was baptized at 9 am this morning and received chrismation sometime after that. I will try to link to some photos later on, but I'm a little tired at the moment. However, I must say that I appreciate those people on this forum that helped me and guided me along the journey to this point and I hope that one day I will be able to help others along as you all have helped me. God bless you all!

In Christ,
Andrew

Many Years! FYI, it appears you have 2009 listed as your chrismation date (above your avatar) instead of 2010. Wink

Thank you for all of your support. I changed the year on my sidebar to 2010 (I'm still used to 2009 Cheesy). I tried to make this viewable by all, but let me know if there are any problems. I put the pictures my dad took on Facebook. I almost started bawling like a baby when I was chrismated and then processed around the analogion thrice. It wouldn't do justice to say that it was a special day. I've been through various Christian churches in my 20 years on this earth and I feel extremely blessed to be home. Thanks again, everyone!!

In Christ,
Andrew

Andrew,

Congratulations and many years.  I remember when I was chrismated and it brought tears of joy to my eyes as well.

As far as your link goes, I've clicked on it twice and have not been able to access the pictures.  If you could put up a few of them here, that'd be great.

Hmm, that's odd. I've uploaded the whole of the pictures to photobucket. Here's a link. I hope it works for you all.

Andrew,

Neither one of your links are working. Perhaps it would be best to just post the URL?
