Just in case you wanted to know
« on: April 21, 2012, 09:47:45 PM »
my prayers have been answered. I finally have been able to get another teaching job here in Omaha.  It is great news on so many levels especially as it will 1) keep us here in Omaha 2) it's more money than what I'm making right now which will help when the baby arrives in July and 3) it's just what I'm born to do.

Thanks to all of you who have remembered me these past 3 years.

Excellent.  Keeping you here in Omaha will be of great benefit to St. Mary's and those who go there to worship.
I would be happy to agree with you, but then both of us would be wrong.

I'm very glad to hear this!  I will interrogate you more tomorrow.

Was "congatulations" your idea of interrogation?  Man, you really need to watch some James Bond films to brush up on your interrogation techniques! ;)

Great benefit to them? Unlikely. Staying here in Omaha though is a great benefit to me and my family and they are my priorities right now.

I have heard you chant.  It is better everytime that I hear you.  The Mattins during Pascha was quite beautiful.  Do not shortchange yourself.  Yes, you are just a part of a whole, but if you did not carry out your part competently, the whole would be diminished.

I haven't seen Kakha in months, so I decided to chat with him for a bit.  I assure you, I had the pliers, blow torch, and glass stirring rod with me, I just had other priorities!   ;)  And like Punch said, you shouldn't short change your chanting!
