Prayers for trip home today for Christmas
« on: January 06, 2005, 11:31:30 AM »
Hi ya'll!
Just asking you to pray for me while I drive home to Jordanville this afternoon.  My little Chuck (so I name my cars, leave me alone) isn't doing so well, but hopefully the alternator belt will hold for another 350+ miles. 
I wish all the OC Orthos a Merry Christmas, be safe if your traveling.

Now where were we? Oh yeah - the important thing was I had an onion on my belt, which was the style at the time. They didn’t have white onions because of the war. The only thing you could get was those big yellow ones...

Prayers for a safe round trip.

An old timer is a man who's had a lot of interesting experiences -- some of them true.

Grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked anyway, the good fortune to run into the ones I do, and the eyesight to tell the difference.

Not meaning to draw attention to a brother's error (I may be the one who's wrong here!), but isn't the Old Calendar Nativity tomorrow?

And, ania, prayers...

Lord, have mercy.
Quote from: Fr Alexander Schmemann
The Gospel is quite clear: both saints and sinners love God. "Religious" people do not love him, and whenever they can, they crucify him.
