  1. That doesn't look like an icon of St. Nicholas the Wonderworker. It looks a bit more like St. Nikolai Velimirović. In any event… happy St. Nicholas Day.


  2. Debbi, thanks so much for pointing that out to me! I have replaced the image with one of the actual saint whose day it is. The first one, as I checked back on it, was of St. Nicholas Zichka. I should be more careful.


  3. Thanks for stopping by me old blog. I'm enjoying yours now. My mouth is agape at your reading lists. I didn't know such books even existed! My world just got brighter. -Daniel


  4. oh… I like that icon of St. Nicholas the Wonderworker. The colors are quite comforting. I know I read somewhere an explanation on why Christ and the Theotokos are over his shoulder, but I can't remember which blog it came from.
