An unworthy Deacon, named for the brother of God: James, striving to "work out his salvation with fear and trembling" within the Tradition (paradosis) of the Eastern Orthodox Faith. It is a strange and marvelous journey, and I am accompanied by the fourfold fruit of my fecundity. My wife, the Matushka or Diaconissa Sophia, is my beloved partner in the pursuit of Theosis, and she ranks me in every way.
...have passed since my beloved began to grace this world. LOL! (running and ducking) And I would be remiss in failing to note that today is her birthday! And I would also be remiss in not mentioning that she is truly everything to me and ranks me a hundredfold in most every way...except maybe in drinking SnowCap and that's nothing to be proud of.
