Scenes from my first Christmas

Yes, this is my First Christmas.....as a Deacon of course. Fr. Andrew reminded me and the entire congregation of that, along with the story ...

It all begins in the garden!

This year Terry and I tried a few different things in our vegetable garden. We mulched in our left over leaves into the garden instead of bagging or burning them. In the spring time we added some peat moss, and some manure to the garden and we have been extremely rewarded from just a small space. We have marveled at the abundance of fruit that we have received and have shared our blessings with families and friends. 

On Wednesday evening we held our second class on the Gospel of John and Steve brought up how there were so many connections with Genesis in the Gospel of John. Life began in the garden, man had fallen in the garden! Christ agonized in the garden, He died and rose again in the garden.

I was truly amazed by the parallels that Steve had uncovered, and I couldn't help but think about how many times we read in Scripture about pruning, gardens, and bearing fruit. 

Our time in formation is similar, the Lord through others is planting seeds within us with the anticipation of a wonderful bounty in the future.

Bonjour et Adieu mes Amis,
