prayer for son's godmother
« on: April 25, 2006, 03:55:40 PM »
I just found out that my 5yo son's godmother is not in Canada to visit her mother.  She is there being taken care of as they found she is suffering from dementia.   I am so sad.  We have only been Orthodox less than two years, my kids even less.  My son is so young, and they were so well matched even though she is in her 70's.  She won't even remember him soon.  I am sad for her, for our parish family and for my little boy.  Our kids godparents were kind of the make up for their lousy biological grandparents, so this is a bitter pill.
Please pray for Kiki.

Lord, have mercy.
Quote
"What people say when they speak on their own account is repellent and murksome, for their words do not come from the living spring of the Spirit, but are spawned from the morass of their own heart, a bog infested with the leeches, snakes and frogs of desire, delusion and dissipation; the water of their knowledge is evil-smelling, turbid and torpid, sickening to those who drink it and filling them with nausea and disgust."

If you're living a happy life as a Christian, you're doing something wrong.
