Welcome to Orthodox Holy Week

The moon is so bright you could probably read by it. The first full moon of Spring marks Passover. The Jewish holiday (remember Christ was born into a Jewish family. He came first for the Jews, was rejected and then adopted the Gentiles. We are the wild olive branches.) Romans 11:17 Now if some of … Continue reading Welcome to Orthodox Holy Week


My drawing wish list

After, Donald Trump won the presidency, I gave up on Facebook due to the nastiness being posted constantly. Who needs that? I belonged to a great Botanical Illustration group. The work was amazing! These hardworking artists could draw anything and make it look like a master piece. They are part of the reason why I … Continue reading My drawing wish list

As a protestant woman, there are pressures put upon us … Continue reading Struggling with Christian female identity

I remember as a Protestant being grumpy at Easter because all of the people who only came at Easter and Christmas came out of the woodwork and crowded the church. Yep... there's a reason why I'm a Christian and it is not because I'm holy. Well, I'm still grumpy about stuff like that but I … Continue reading Come to Orthodoxy

Understanding the Orthodox Cross

Some how, in my Internet wonderings today, I came across a terrible post by a confused individual who clearly has issues with Christianity and the cross. This person has no real solid information about the cross other than they just know that how Roman Catholics and Orthodox Christians revere it is 'satanic'. It is not. … Continue reading Understanding the Orthodox Cross
