See how the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth, being patient with it until it receives the early and the late rains. - James 5:7

Oh look! I'm just like Gramick! I'm in a habit.



I found all my old Picassa albums online, and came across this.  It is a photo of me as a novice in a monastery.

  12. Hmm, I see no hint of mischief in that face, just a sweet expression. Are you sure that's you?

    I don't know if that time was a joyful one for you, but you certainly do look happy.
