A week has passed since the snow started falling and it is still around. According to the local weather man it should warm up tomorrow afternoon, we should be getting some south wind by Mon. and that should get the melting going. Here is a photo I took at the Blue Cross, more to come and more videos to be uploaded to medj.com soon. Stay tuned.
The snow finally started to melt, I just hope we do not get any more over the next few days as the weather man says we could. :) In any case, things are starting to normalize and in many ways that is good, it is just that I got used to not hearing the number of cars running around and it was like a peaceful vacation.
Here is a few more images I took over the past two days. I hope you enjoy them. GOD BLESS.
Those of you that climbed Cross Mountain at least once know the amount of limestone around, basically it is not possible to put your foot down and not step on a rock. Well, ow imagine going up and not seeing a single rock, stone... For the first time in my life, that is what happened to me today. :) The hill is completely covered with snow.
Check the new video I've uploaded to www.medj.com to get the feel of all of the snow up there.
The snow stopped but it is still around, the northeastern wind picked up and it is bordering with a storm. It is moving allots of snow around, most of what we've cleaned and shoveled away is back. Just as long as it is not snowing any more there is hope it will go away. :)
We've put some food out for the birds, I am sure they are exhausted searching for something to eat. I took some photos of my fellow Medjugorje beings eating away on our porch.
I went out for a stroll around the church area today, took some photos while the sun was setting, I must say with all of the problems around with all of this unexpected snow there is a sense of peace and some kind of a mood that just makes you relax and enjoy.
Unfortunately there are still hamlets that do not have running water, electricity is out and the phone lines and internet is down. We just hope things will normalize over the next few days. It is interesting how people get along in moments of small or big crisis. Praise GOD.
Today was a nice sunny day, the snow is still here and still well over 3 feet, it has been a challenge to get up to the apparition hill today but I made it. I took a bunch of photos so there is no need to write much when the photos say it all. I will post them slowly so we do not over load the site.
According to the weatherman, we are to expect more snow through the night and tomorrow, I wonder when will this come to an end? Everybody is talking about the global warming, is this global cooling or is it linked to the global warming somewhere.
A friend sent an email from Australia this morning, telling me that they are having a nice summer weather there and that the temp. is a bit over 95F, it was like a smack on the face after I shoveled for an hour or so.
Short sum of video clips will be up on medj.com, tune in and check them out. Thank you.
It is Sat. afternoon, it seams the snow will swamp up completely. it is up to 3+ feet and it does not look like it is going to stop any time soon. For some it is allot of fun, some others enjoy the peace and quiet of the place with no cars driving around and for the rest of us it is time to shovel again.
Luckily my father has a small Russian all terrain vehicle that he uses for when he goes to the vineyards I was able to go to the store and get some necessities for us and the neighbors.
It is sad that we in fact are paying top money when we register our cars, we are taxed for this and that and the chunk goes to the winter maintenance and cleaning of the roads. The funny part is the fact that we only have snow once in 3 years for an inch or two and once in 10 years it goes over a foot. Needless to say that the municipality snowplow service did not go through once over the past tree days. It is just our reality and it is quite sad as there is people that go to the hospital on daily basis for their treatment and now they are home bound for who knows how long.
Just a short update from our little village, it is snowing strong, it is quite a sight. It has been constant for the past couple hours and it is expected to snow for the whole night. It piled up to about 3"/10cm. I will post some photos tomorrow (I hope to take some nice ones).
UPDATE: Snow is still falling, it is up to two feet now, since we do not have snowplows anything over 2 inches makes the area stop in every segment, schools, banks, postal service... Luckily, I have a neighbor Bruno who has a bulldozer business so he goes through several times a day to clear the roads towards his/our home at the base of the Cross Hill. :)
I went up to the Cross Hill yesterday, stayed up through the afternoon and took some photos, here is one for now, more to come soon. Stay tuned.
Dear children; I am with you for so much time and already for so long I have been pointing you to Gods presence and His infinite love, which I desire for all of you to come to know. And you, my children? You continue to be deaf and blind as you look at the world around you and do not want to see where it is going without my Son. You are renouncing Him - and He is the source of all graces. You listen to me while I am speaking to you, but your hearts are closed and you are not hearing me. You are not praying to the Holy Spirit to illuminate you. My children, pride has come to rule. I am pointing out humility to you. My children, remember that only a humble soul shines with purity and beauty because it has come to know the love of God. Only a humble soul becomes heaven, because my Son is in it. Thank you. Again I implore you to pray for those whom my Son has chosen - those are your shepherds.
Dear children; As with motherly concern I look in your hearts, in them I see pain and suffering; I see a wounded past and an incessant search; I see my children who desire to be happy but do not know how. Open yourselves to the Father. That is the way to happiness, the way by which I desire to lead you. God the Father never leaves His children alone, especially not in pain and despair. When you comprehend and accept this, you will be happy. Your search will end. You will love and you will not be afraid. Your life will be hope and truth which is my Son. Thank you. I implore you, pray for those whom my Son has chosen. Do not judge because you will all be judged.
Dear friends, just a short note from Medjugorje to wish you all a very happy celebration of the welcoming the New Year. 2011 was quite turbulent yet filled with allots of graces and good vibrations. I would guess that 2011 was one of the most busiest years of the past 30 years. Fruitful and joyful in so many ways, I just hope that 2012 tops it.
I wish a very simple wish for you all, a blessing of good health and love from Our Lady and her Son.
Just a short note to tell you all that our little video portal is coming up slowly but shurely. You can follow the progress at medj.com, we will be uploading a video now end then. The latest video will show in the center and the previous videos will be listed on the side. Stay tuned and GOD BLESS.
Dear children! With joy I am with you also today and I call all of you, little children, pray, pray, pray so as to comprehend the love which I have for you. My love is stronger than evil, little children, therefore draw closer to God so as to feel my joy in God. Without God, little children, you do not have a future, you do not have hope or salvation; therefore leave evil and choose good. I am with you and, with you, I intercede before God for all of your needs. Thank you for having responded to my call.
Quote of the day!
"To keep a lamp burning we have to keep putting oil in it." - Mother Teresa
I, (name), a faithless sinner, renew and ratify today in your hands, O Immaculate Mother, the vows of my Baptism; I renounce forever Satan, his pomps and works; and I give myself entirely to Jesus Christ, the Incarnate Wisdom, to carry my cross after Him all the days of my life, and to be more faithful to Him than I have ever been before.
In the presence of all the heavenly court, I choose you this day for my Mother and Queen. I deliver and consecrate to you, as your slave, my body and soul, my goods, both interior and exterior, and even the value of all my good actions, past, present, and future; leaving to you the entire and full right of disposing of me, and all that belongs to me, without exception, according to your good pleasure, for the greater glory of God, in time and eternity. Amen. - St. Louis Marie de Montfort
