Christ IS Risen!
Dear Readers I must confess to being absolutely exhausted! Totally and completely whooped. So tired that I was unable to get myself to Paschal Vespers at noon today.
It is official…I am old.
My mind tells me that I am not much over the age of 25, thus should be able to spend lots of time praying, attending services, taking care of husband / house / dog, cook, do laundry, stay up till 4:30 a.m., get 5 hours of sleep and keep on going like the Energizer Bunny the next day.
The 50 year old body is screaming, “NO YOU ARE NOT!!”
I’m so tired I don’t know if I’ll be able to sleep tonight. And unfortunately, tomorrow is a work day. I hope I wake up enough to be there mentally. LOL!
Despite the exhaustion, Holy Week services were very helpful to the healing of mind and spirit. The hymnology taught me much. All of the readings reminded me that I am not alone in my struggle. Pascha reminded me that there is hope and resurrection.
Today reminded me that there is rest after the struggle.
Despite the exhaustion
Parting Thought: Mom experienced the ‘real’ and ‘True’ Pascha this year :O) That makes me happy.
Indeed He IS Risen!
