I'm leaving for NC tomorrow, finally starting life over after months of planning. Please pray that things go well for my children and I.

O Lord, have mercy on your servants!
"Take heed, you who listen to me: Our misfortune is inevitable, we cannot escape it. If God allows scandals, it is that the elect shall be revealed. Let them be burned, let them be purified, let them who have been tried be made manifest among you."   - The Life of the Archpriest Avvakum by Himself

Lord, have mercy and preserve this family.
Happy shall he be, that shall take and dash thy little ones against the rock. Alleluia.

All Holy Trinity, have mercy on us.

We made it here, and are now officially having reverse culture shock. I grew up here but left at 18 and have always lived in very large cities ever after. We just went from Seattle to a rural Southern town of 7,000. So far it is really, really quiet...

Thank-you for your prayers!

Glad you made it safely.  Continued prayers for the adjustment.

take your kids to see the wildlife.
that's what people do in the countryside.
go hunt some rare flowers or birds.
stay clear of rattlesnakes or brown bears!

You've greatly improved your surroundings to a place more conducive to raising a family.  Lord, have mercy.  You're in my prayers.
Some of my questions might appear patently stupid to those well-versed in Orthodoxy, but I'm brand new, having no background in the faith.  Please grant me a great deal of patience and consideration as I learn the basics.
