Wonder

This is the view I have from my window, nothing special I always said, but today (listening to meditation music) I looked out of the window again and for the first time I saw that tree as it really is.

The beautiful perfect shape it has! It is the only thing in my window view that needed only water and soil to become so perfect…….

Everything else was made with hard labor, materials that had to be made first, constructions, construction plans, money and more.

So remember, wonders really exist, they are everywhere around you, do never forget that.

I wish you a wonderful day from the center of my ❤️

Good Wednesday

Megali Tetarti or Good Wednesday is also a very important day in the Greek Orthodox religion, as it is then that the priests during the evening service bless the oil. Oil that is used to bless people and protect them against sickness of body and mind. To bless the oil the priest will read 7 gospels and announce 7 wishes. After he blessed the oil he will put with the oil a cross on the believers forehead, cheek and hands.

 

 

this picture is not exactly what I explain you in the text above and under because taking a picture of a priest who blesses the oil is not possible.

In several places in Greece also eggs, flower and salt is taken, covered in a basket, to church where it will be blessed by the priest by crossing it with the wooden holy Cross. The eggs will then be colored on Good Thursday and the flower and salt will be used to make the dough for the ‘prozimi’ or yeast that will be used to make the Easter bread, as also in the bread that will be made in the following year.
