Each year brings a cycle of return. This is now my second Nativity Fast as an Orthodox Christian. There were five such fasts as I made my way toward the Orthodox Church. No two have been the same. Each, especially the last two, have carried significant sorrows as well as wonderful joys.
I think I’m coming to a point in which I wait for what God will bring, working to accept it all, with, as is appropriate for us in this time of year, thanksgiving.
A blessed Fast to all ya’ll.
