A Child's View of Thunderstorms

A little girl walked to and from school daily. Though the weather that morning was questionable and clouds were forming, she made her daily trek to school.
As the afternoon progressed, the winds whipped up, along with lightning. The mother of the little girl felt concerned that her daughter would be frightened as she walked home from school. She also feared the electrical storm might harm her child.
Full of concern, the mother got into her car and quickly drove along the route to her child's school. As she did, she saw her little girl walking along. At each flash of lightning, the child would stop, look up, and smile. More lightening followed quickly and with each, the little girl would look at the streak of light and smile.
When the mother drew up beside the child, she lowered the window and called, "What are you doing?"
The child answered, "I am trying to look pretty because God keeps taking my picture."
May God bless you today and every day as you face the storms that come your way.
" Life is too short to wake up in the morning with regrets, so 'Love the people who treat you right. Pray for those who don't "

Διαβασε βιβλίa πνευματικά ( Γέροντας Παΐσιος  )

Καλό είναι το να διαβάζει κανείς βιβλίa πνευματικά, αλλά καλύτερα είναι το να τα εφαρμόζει, να ζει πνευματικά.

Ο Θεός αγαπάει ( Γέροντας Ευσέβιος Γιαννακάκης )

Από κάθε γωνιά της γης τόσες άσχημες αναθυμιάσεις ανεβαίνουν στο θρόνο Του…κι όμως ο Θεός αγαπάει , ανέχεται, μακροθυμεί. Με τον πόνο, με τη δοκιμασία επισκέπτεται τους ανθρώπους, και όσοι έχουν καλή διάθεση ομολογούν τα σφάλματα τους ενώπιον του Πνευματικού , χύνουν δάκρυα, γίνονται άλλοι άνθρωποι· αυτοί, που, αν τους γνωρίζαμε λίγα χρόνια πρίν, θα τους βομβαρδίζαμε με τα λόγια μας.

Την ευχή να λέμε ( Γέροντας Ευσέβιος Γιαννακάκης )

Να προσευχώμεθα, να προσευχώμεθα, να προσευχώμεθα. Στην εργασία μας, στο δρόμο, στο αυτοκίνητο , παντού. Το πρωί, όταν ξυπνήσουμε , πρώτα προσευχή, πάντα προσευχή. Την ευχή να λέμε πολλές φορές, στο δρόμο, στο σχολείο, στην εργασία μας. Κύριε Ιησού Χριστέ, ελέησόν με, τον αμαρτωλόν. Τότε νιώθουμε τον εαυτό μας γεμάτο και ο Θεός δίνει πλούσια τη Χάρη Του…

In finding God ( St. Herman of Alaska )

A terrible accident has a power to awaken us to the realization of the existence of various calamities and dangers surrounding us, from which the Providence of God preserves us. At the same time it convincingly persuades us to acknowledge our own infirmity and weakness and to seek the Father's protection and His most powerful defense, which affirms us in the Wisdom and the Word of God, which came down from above by the will of the Heavenly Father under a curtain of flesh like ours, woven by the Divine Might from the Immaculate Virgin, for our salvation. He became man and taught us to pray that we be not led into temptation. This reminds us from what Father we have our existence, and this in turn should make us seek our heavenly Fatherland and our eternal inheritance.

St. Herman of Alaska

Jesus Prayer ( Elder Paisios )

Blessed are those who have Christ as their hearts’ axis and joyfully revolve around His Holy Name, noetically and unceasingly repeating "Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me."

Elder Paisios

Giving alms ( St. Seraphim of Sarov )

Giving alms must be done with a spiritually kind disposition, in agreement with the teachings of St. Isaac the Syrian: "If you give anything to him who asks, may the joy of your face precede your alms, and comfort his sorrow with kind words."

St. Seraphim of Sarov
