Happy New Year!

I am now a few weeks into my freedom after finishing graduate school and receiving my M.Ed degree. I would like to get back into blogging again now that I have a bit more free time, but we’ll see how well I can keep it up! I was married to the love of my life back in July in a beautiful ceremony at St. Elias Orthodox Church here in Austin. Our martyrs crowns rest on the top shelf below our icons hanging on the wall in the room we call “the prayer room” and wait to be hung up. We are reminded when seeing them of our commitment to die for the other, yet it is so easy to fight to win and to “live” for ourselves everyday. Our 5-month anniversary was yesterday, and we remembered that marriage truly is a path to sanctification.

Why would I like to start blogging again? Praying with my husband everyday, I enjoy his leading and choosing the readings. However, I know that my faith needs to still be my own. Being orthodox nearly a year and a half now, I am realizing how intentional I must be in digging into the readings and prayers and connecting with the saints who have gone before me. It has always been good for me to write about things, though the last year and a half of moving and graduate school and getting married and more moving has made it less likely that I will stop and meditate on all that has happened. I’d like to catch up now…
