The month of August was a bummer. Regular readers noticed a drop-off with this blog. I've had some disappointing personal stuff going on...I could try and write more eloquently about the situations, but I just don't have the heart. I am just glad that my immediate and extended family can find it within themselves to love me! And....we were going to move to a house from our townhouse...we were (still are, actually) packed to travel the two long miles to the old, wee house with a yard. It was not meant to be. As my oldest daughter says, "Well, we could be living on the streets!" True, that.
So, as a belated thank-you to all my blog readers, I'd like to celebrate three years with a giveaway. One commenter (please either comment with a user name with email or put an email address in your anonymous comment) to this post will be randomly chosen to receive this solid silver Byzantine cross made by my brother-in-law. If you win, I will contact you by email- please be prepared to email me your mailing address.
I apologize for the poor quality of the photo- I just wanted to get this post done, and my camera is packed! My brother-in-law's website is Veronikon. Please explore all his beautiful artwork. The diptych on the homepage with images in relief of Our Lady of Guadalupe and Jesus' face from St Veronica is especially beautiful in real life. My children love to light the small candle in front of the diptych when we pray at our icon corner. Don't I have talented family?
Leave a comment- win a cross!
