But then it was Wednesday night, and Thursday would be my first day this week of getting to attend the church services leading up to Pascha (aka Easter), and I decided to leave (almost)* all of my work...at work. Two days later, on Holy Friday, I know I made the right decision.
So, rather than attempt to post about the exciting (though exhausting) things happening professionally for me, I'm posting a picture I took in honor of the feast.
|My husband's tulips are blooming :)
A few weeks ago my husband had to protect these lovelies from a frost that hit us (by covering them with a sheet), and apparently he was successful as they are finally opening up. Just in time for the Feast of the Resurrection--couldn't be more perfect, and with the promise of warmer temperatures later this weekend, my guess is they will open up even more by Sunday.
Since I am quite sure I won't manage to post again until at least sometime next week, I'll go ahead and anticipate this Sunday now by saying:
Christ is Risen!!!
A blessed Pascha to those who celebrate this week!!!
*The only work I brought home is some research-reading I need to digest for my Old Testament class, in order to write a 1.5 page summary of what I plan to include in my final paper for the course. So far, though, I haven't been able to bring myself to pull the reading out and do anything with it. Other things seem more important right now (like two theology-filled church services per day). Perhaps later this weekend....
