From constant guarding of the heart purity is born in it…

Just three days left until the Nativity (:

Does the bible say anything about God writing our names in our hands?Is that symbolic of his trust if so? freespiritsjustdontmind

I do not know of something like that, although I’m not the expert. I do know that many times, God’s Holy Name itself is mentioned.

Do not be surprised if you fall every day and do not surrender. Stand your ground bravely. And you may be sure that your guardian angel will respect your endurance. A fresh, warm wound is easier to heal than those that are old, neglected, and festering, and that need extensive treatment, surgery, bandaging, and cauterization. Long neglect can render many incurable. However, all things are possible with God.

The man who follows Christ in solitary mourning is greater than he who praises Christ amid the congregation of men.

Slavonic Chant - Valaam

A Mercy of Peace, Holy Holy Lord of Sabaoth, and We Hymn Thee (The petitions after the Cherubic Hymn)


The choir of the brethren of Valaam; various Russian Orthodox Chant

This is beautiful beyond words

I really wanted to put this back on my blog again

Those who live in obedience are strangers to love of money.

May the soul that has sought refuge in Thy cross and inherited eternal incorruptible treasure praise and exalt Thee together with the spirits that number her among Thy ranks.
