Happy  Mother’s Day

 

Happy Mother's Day

A mother’s love means a life’s devotion – and sometimes a life’s sacrifice – with but one thought, one hope and one feeling, that her children will grow up healthy and strong, free from evil habits and able to provide for themselves. Her sole wish is that they may do their part like men and women, avoid dangers and pitfalls, and when dark hours come, trust in Providence to give them strength, patience and courage to bear up bravely.
Happy is the mother when her heart’s wish is answered, and happy are sons and daughters when they can feel that they have contributed to her noble purpose, and in some measure, repaid her unceasing, unwavering love and devotion.

To All Mothers Alone

A letter to all the Mothers are alone today:

You know who you are and you know you risked everything to try to give your children a better life .

To all the mothers whose children were called back to heaven , my heart goes out to you.

To all the mothers whose children won’t speak to them, my heart goes out to you.

To all the single Mothers, I am with you ..

To all the Mothers in controlling , narcissistic relationships , I pray for you ..

To all the Moms who are being or were abused by husbands or family members God loves you and you will get through this.

To all the Moms who are blessed to be with your family on Mothers Day make sure you thank God!

To all the Moms and Grandmom’s who are alone today , buy yourself some flowers.

Put on your armor of God and put one foot in front of the other .

I am Praying for all of us.

Happy Mothers Day

Christos Voskrese 2024

Christos Voskrese 2024 — Christos voskrese, which means Christ has Risen, is the Easter greeting in Church Slavonic which brings the response Voistinu voskrese or Indeed, He has risen.

Easter, of course, celebrates the Resurrection of the Lord Jesus and the salvation of Man.  The date for Easter is the Sunday following the first full moon after the spring equinox, which is always reckoned, regardless of astronomical observations, to be March 21 as per the Western churches that use the Gregorian calendar, so Easter always falls between March 22 and April 25.

The dating for Easter correlates with the means the Jews once used to set the date for Passover, which correlates with Scripture since Scripture indicates that the Crucifixion of the Lord occurred as the lambs were being slaughtered for the celebration of that holiday. In fact, in most Western languages the name for the day is a cognate of the Pesach which is the Hebrew name for Passover. In Latin it would be Pascha so Paschal lamb would be Passover lamb.

In English and German, the word comes from Eostre month, which was basically April, and which the pagans who spoke Germanic languages had named for the goddess Eostre much as our own March and April are named for the Greek god and goddess Mars and Aphrodite, respectively. In Slavic, the holiday is called “Great Night” (Velikonoce in Slovak) or “Great Day” (Velikden in Ukrainian). There are some caveats regarding the date. The Eastern churches that use the Julian calendar set the equinox  at April 3, and, of course, the spring equinox is based on that of the Northern Hemisphere.

Merry Christmas 2023

Merry Christmas Charlie Brown 2023

Here’s what Christmas is all about:

And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night.

9 And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.

10 And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.

11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.

12 And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.

13 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,

14 Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.

Winter 2023-24 Starts Now

Winter 2023-24 starts 10:27 p.m. EST , Dec. 21, which is right now if our internet service provider’s clock is accurate.

This means that tilt of Earth’s semi-axis is most inclined to the sun in the Southern Hemisphere which is a solstice.

The axis will in a few moments slowly start reversing itself until it is the Northern Hemisphere that is most inclined to the sun.

This would be the start of our summer (and Argentina’s winter).

Today is the shortest day of the year.
