Russian Festival Preparation

Originally I was not going to post these photos, but I want to showcase some of the work done by one of "my kids." Masha took some of the photos and I took some.

Our most precious treasures are our children and I consider every child at my churches to be mine.  I love and cherish every one of them.  Of course I do love some more than others, but that is human nature. 

I also love it when we have visitors at our church.  We in the Orthodox Church are like one big family.  We are all somehow related to each other.
