A few years ago I took this photo while at church. It's the day we celebrate the Lord's Transfiguration on Mt. Tabor, where he talked with Moses and Elijah (who had gone to heaven already)...one of the 12 Great Feasts...and one of my favorites! I love singing this song in the Greek melody that my parents taught us, and I hope to teach it to my children:
Thou wast transfigured on the mountain, O Christ our God,
showing to Thy disciples Thy glory as each one could endure;
shine forth Thou on us, who are sinners all, Thy light never-ending
through the prayers of the Theotokos, O Light-bestower, glory be to Thee.
I just took this photo yesterday...one of our tomatoes from our backyard garden in our basket, some pears and Olivia's favorite fruit (plums), plus a bunch of tiny champagne grapes (from our dear friend, Varvara)!
