this is what I look like, deep in thought
I walked in a little late last night but I came in and heard the choir and it sounded beautiful! And shouldn't worship to the Almighty God be beautiful? I took my place quickly and started to join in but it was hard to sing because of a sore I have in my mouth, I soldiered on anyway.
It was odd to see (or rather hear) Fr Gary censing the altar. No bells.
I thought of something I heard Fr. Hopko preach on via Ancient Faith Radio. We are Icons of Christ! When the Priest censes the Icons of the Saints and then turns around to cense us the people, do we realize what it is we have to live up to? Anyway, that thought kind of overwhelmed me a bit. Humbled, more like. I guess humility is a good way to feel, especially in lent.
Speaking of Lent, mine is going so well. I have missed the two mid week opportunities of extra services. (I have been exhausted after work) and I am over eating!
That ain't good!
So, hears hoping to a better Lent.
