Volnutt, is that Brawl in your avatar?
Yep
Every day we should hear at least one little song, read one good poem, see one exquisite picture, and, if possible, speak a few sensible words. -Goethe

I once heard a monk say, “The person of prayer does not need to go any further than his own heart to find the source of all violence in the world.” -Fr. Stephen Freeman

Rhein II, a photograph of the Rhine River by Andreas Gursky

 Although estimated at $2.5 – $3.5 million, the photograph went under Christie’s hammer for $4,338,500. It beat out Cindy Sherman’s Untitled #96, which sold for a whopping $3.89 million at a Christie’s sale this May.

Our little daughter - Hosanna Maryam/Welete Mikael - was baptized one year ago today, on St. Michael's Day. She departed in the Lord the next afternoon, escorted to the realm of angels by St. Michael himself. I miss her SO MUCH! What excuse do I have for my sins, for I saw Christ Himself as I gazed upon my daughter's countenance during the 11 weeks that I was able to hold her in my unworthy arms. May her prayers be with us, and may her memory be eternal!

Memory Eternal.

So sorry Gebre.

EDIT: Thought writing the following might be self-indulgent. Well, I dunno.

This truly breaks my heart.

Was going to post how lovely time I had a the DL today in the random topics thread, since I am one of the few men who show up on a week day morning. Lotsa women with kids that need help usually.

One women brought all her children and I rarely get more true joy in life than now being able play with the kids. Help them venerate the icons. Etc.

Sometimes I get choked up just seeing the very young children being Communed. Or a child in her mother's arms kissing the Theotokos to only quickly turn in her mother's arms to kiss her.

That is all to say, I can't possibly imagine how grievous this must be for you. Your daughter, you, and your entire family will be in my prayers over this week, a time set aside to reconnect with those we love but not have seen in some time, in Thanksgiving.

I hope this is received in the spirit it was meant and was not self-indulgent. And I am more than choked up now in the middle of a lab. So I better go get cleaned up.

Know that more than a few I am sure weep with you.

She's touring the facility/and picking up slack.
