Nice! Nicely done. Now this is what this thread is for.
In love did God create the world; in love does he guide it ...; in love is he going wondrously to transform it. --Abba Isaac

Love ... is an abyss of illumination, a mountain of fire ... . It is the condition of angels, the progress of eternity. --Climacus

Oh heck, I guess I'd better get them ALL in ...



Me, my wife, and our previous 11 grandkids -- taken before #12 was born in February.

Beautiful!  :)

Supposed to be working. But reading this dang old web site instead.

Even if we have thousands of acts of great virtue to our credit, our confidence in being heard must be based on God's mercy and His love for men. Even if we stand at the very summit of virtue, it is by mercy that we shall be saved.

Son, now that's a fine shirt.

Thank you. Its from Banana Republic. I only shop there when they have the 40% off sales, and even then its a little steep. Its blue, but looks purplish in this picture.

(Confession: I smoothed the image to hide some rather visible razor burn today... yikes.)

I whole-heartedly agree.

Unfortunately, the Chick-Fil-A corporate office has a no beard policy. Kinda sad, but since working here is so great, the sacrifice is tolerable.

And I suppose you're required to say "My pleasure" everytime you pass an office mate the stapler.

Anyway, take this advice from someone who has a very tough beard: Drink as much of a litre of water as you can when you get up, and then shave in the shower. Can make a world of difference.

We do say "my pleasure" around here. Its not just in the restaurants. Definitely something they have made a part of their culture!

"Orthodox Christians themselves are apostates. Members of our own Orthodox Church are apostates. We have such nominalism in our Church, such secularization. A lot of our churches are nothing but ethnic clubs, and clergy men on ego-trips and spouting all kinds of spirituality, of monasticism and dressed like monks when they’re not"- Fr. Hopko
