Two Down, One to Go....

Those of you who have kept up with this blog for several years remember Hope's pronunciation of "Holy Spirit" when Kate was just born; prayer was in the name of the "Fahduur, Shun, an' Hody Britches."

Her little sister has taken it upon herself to take creative license with the second Member of the Trinity. She picked up the Trisagion prayer nicely during morning/evening prayers; she would sing "Ho-nee My-nee" when "Holy Mighty" starts up. Being a young toddler, however, that pronunciation is subject to variation; now whenever she sees His icon she reaches for it and calls Him, "Holy Moly."

Yeah.

Fahduur, Holy Moly, and the Hody Britches. The Hody Fahduurs must be rollin' in their graves...

Rhology,

Um? Well...they are still there until He comes for them, after all...

...consider it a small precursor to the general resurrection of the dead brought on by the "perfect praise" s-p alluded to, then. ;-)

(To all those reading these comments: Rho and I have known each other for years. Yes, we really are this dorky in real life.)

I am, however, resisting a "holy rollers" joke here.
