Sounds like a plan.  Be expecting a friend request.
Psalm 37:23 The Lord guides a man safely in the way he should go.

Prov. 3: 5-6 Trust in the Lord with all your heart, lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will direct your paths.

Here are some photos from Saturday's Vespers (Sunday of the Holy Cross) - my church.  (I got to decorate the Cross! - how honored am I?)

Flowers done, and waiting for Fr. Paul to take in to the Altar


Lying on the Altar Talbe






Lying to the right, is an icon I just bought and had Fr. Paul bless for me.

Wow. Unbelievably beautiful. Almost made my eyes pop out.

Seriously, Liza, do you work for the AP or National Geographic? If you don't, they are missing out.

LOL!  Thanks, biro!  Definitely not a professional photographer.  Just a hobby of mine.

The church was soooooo pretty, it was hard to walk out of it.  I just wanted to linger there for hours.

...as it was, I closed it down!  :D  The candles were put out, then the lights went off....and I was still lurking.  By the time I joined everyone in the hall....there was no more coffee left.   ;D

This is Holy Trinity Orthodox Church in Detroit.

Yes, that's Father Anthony.  Here was here for our Lenten mission, this past Saturday.  I love serving with Father.

The interior painting and fixing of the dome was completed this past week and the church looks just wonderful.  When I get a chance I'll post photos of the work that was done, along with what the interior looked like before.

It was also the Sunday for our First Confession children.



He's up on his tippy toes...



The kids got to hold candles during the reading of the Gospel.

Holy Saturday.  We bless baskets after Divine Liturgy.  It is supposed to be for the elderly and those with young families, who will not be able to attend in the evening and in to early Sunday morning.  They are forbidden from eating from the baskets until after Midnight, and Christ is Risen.

I once again, gave the kids candles to hold during the reading of the Gospel.







The homemade butter lamb caught my eye....I didn't even notice the rings, until I was looking at the photos...do you see them?












Discussing world peace....note, even their legs are posed the same.

You only posted it yesterday.  Folks weren't online on Sunday.  Give them some time.  :D

I thought the photos were very nice.  I was able to view them.

So, did you take these photos this weekend?  If so, was there some particular event that everyone was out at the cemeteries?

I know we have St. Demetrios next Saturday, perhaps you are on new calendar?

Cemetery dates back to XVth century. Of course there is nothing such old left but one can assume some pieces may come from the XVIII one.

...it's better than magic!  :)

It's his portable version.  Otherwise, he's got a little broom-like sprinkler made of shaved wood, that he dips and douses with.
Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.
—St. Isaac of Syria

I especially like this one. The contrast between the simple blue tombstones and the rather ostentatious one is quite jolting.
