That's rather normal. One always feels like zombie on Easter.

hope my protestant friends who we are having lunch with will excuse the zombie state!
hope they don't get too shocked looking at the bags under my eyes either!
 :o
well, it is Pascha, and God answers prayer, so i will stop worrying!
these are the only protestant friends who did not try to proselytize me back to their form of Christianity, so i am grateful for their acceptance so far.
 :)
may God show them the depths of His love and care and truth
(in His church)
 :D

also i loved your videos, esp. the first one with the happy kids.

My son is down with an ear infection, so we haven't spent as much time in church as I'd have liked. Still going to vespers, in about 4 hours' time, though.

From one of the most beautiful places on earth, Hawaii:
"Ua ala hou'o Kristo!  Ua ala 'i 'o no 'oia!"

And the homes of my ancestors:
"Christus ist erstanden!  Wahrlich ist erstanden!"
and
"Tha Croisd air eiridh!  gu dearbh, tha e air eiridh!"
"Ta Croist eirithe!  go deimhin ta se eirithe!"

Someone in years past provided a Paschal Greeting from the Hood:
"Word Up!  Word!"

There are beautiful greetings from the whole world!

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.
