Just wanted to share that a date was set for Chrismation for myself and my family. My family and I will celebrate the Nativity as Orthodox.

This has been nearly a decade long journey getting here. Thanks be to God that the day is finally arriving!!!

To God be the Glory in all things! Amen!

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

Now the struggle truly begins. But Our Lord will never leave you or forsake you, and His Church is your loving Mother in whom you may always find refuge, comfort, strength, and peace.
