"Lord have mercy."

There are difficult days now and to come for all those who love Christ. And know that striving for theosis will always be life altering. But the fire strengthens what it does not devour, and those who are in Christ are never devoured. Remember that the gates of hell shall not prevail against His Church. [St. Matthew 16:18] So be encouraged!

Excellence of character, then, is a state concerned with choice, lying in a mean relative to us, this being determined by reason and in the way in which the man of practical wisdom would determine it. Now it is a mean between two vices, that which depends on excess and that which depends on defect.

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

Thank you for your prayers and kind thoughts. Our move is complete, except for boxes and boxes. People from our Church were wonderful, helping us finish on Saturday, it was like an Amish barn-raising. Unfortunately, my wife fell off of a box and broke her arm during the move and will undergo surgery Wednesday. Please remember my wife, Cheryl in your prayers.

Thank you for your prayers. Her recovery is progressing well and the surgery went better than the surgeon had expected.
