Yep, lots of different kinds of Orthodox, Russian, Greek, Romanian, Georgian, Serbian, etc.. the one we go to is Antiochian Orthodox.Oh my gosh...are you Byzantine Catholic?? I am...I can’t believe it..when I saw the first picture I saw the set up, and was taken aback, but thought how rare it is to see another church like this....unfortunately where I live now, there are no Byzantine churches and we go to Roman, which is fine, but I do miss the rituals and the old traditions. My hubby doesn’t miss the long masses ...lol. We are of the same faith but he wasn’t raised going to Byzantine so there isn’t the same appreciation. What wonderful pictures...we also called our church a Greek Catholic, so perhaps that’s what you are...or even Orthodox..they are basically the same....I’m just thrilled to see the cross! Merry Christmas!
I shudder just thinking about it. It's 38f this morning at 7:30, but going into the 60s, just as yesterday. I happily forgo the white Christmas thing.
Yesterday was pretty much a routine day at my place. Was going to finish cutting the trees in the garden plot. As I poured gasoline into my chainsaw, it poured out equally quickly! Lots of luck finding a small engine repair shop open on Christmas day. So. Off comes the cover. (I really don't know beans about engines, but am ok at remembering how to put things back that I take apart.) Found the culprit. A fuel line had come off. But the space was too small for human fingers. Too small even for needle nose pliers. Oh, for a set of 10 inch hemostats! But, no. So. The carburetor had to come off. ??? How? Eventually got it off, still had to use needle nose to reach the fuel line, put back on, only to discover I had disconnected yet ANOTHER line in the process! Finally, after about 4 hours of head scratching and improvising I had a functioning saw again. Life on the farm! I only had time to cut 16 trees before dark. So, back to finish up (hopefully) today. Hope everyone else had a merry Christmas!
Sounds like a normal "if it can go wrong it will" kind of day!
On Monday as people were starting to get sick... we wanted to do a quick plow.... one 4-wheeler didn't have the battery put back in, the other wheeler kept stalling for mysterious reasons, and the plow truck wouldn't start at all!!!
We gave up.
