To all,

From only a small number of people did I receive any help, but from several it was substantial.
I deeply appreciate it all, and your prayers also, AND I TOO PRAY FOR YOU!
AND, I once again, also thank all past benefactors!
***Some, who did not give me their name or return address, to send them my thank-you, I hear thank them, hoping that they read this.
And God knows them.

It has been said: "In the next world, all that we will have, there,  is what.... we gave away.... here."
And, I do daily pray for you all, including those whom you have asked me, in my unworthy  prayers, to pray for, others, both the living and the departed.
Your recent monetary aid,  got me over that  serious impasse financially, mainly dealing with my largest monthly/regular  on-going expense
- feeding the dependent animals which the Good Lord has sent to me to care-take, to help, to prevent from starvation or otherwise to save them from their destruction.
Though my sole regular sustaining income,  is my small monthly old-age social security & it is quite definitely low, and never seems to get increased, yet for my own immediate personal normal needs, [usually anyway] it suffices- though barely.
Therefore, for those who want to and are able, I can still use any on-going further  aid-large or small,  to share with God's critters, to keep the electricity on and this computer, and also for my yearly property taxes, which run now close to $1,400.00 -which for that, in early November, I need help with.
In the colder time of the year, [from October- thru the start of July, approximately] my electric bill goes very high, as I must now use electric heat.
Am I worthy or deserving of such help from anyone?-NO!...of course not.
One saint gave his answer when asked, [if one is able to, as God has given us from His hand], as to whom one should, or might not, give aid: "Give to him who asks!"
That rule  is what I try to always follow regarding God's helpless critters at my door, or any humans in trouble, that I might be able to help.
Before I pass on, my hope is to make this 132 acres: 'God's Acre', [ blessed and already dedicated to Our Lord, many years ago]  an animal rescue refuge, especially for abandoned or unwanted cats and dogs,
 but also for saving other wild animals as well, if God so permits and blesses.
My current idiorrhythmic brotherhood,  consists of numerous cats, pretty and gentle 'pole-cats'-skunks,{"God's Stinkers"}  shy opossums, bold and bandit-masked comical and monkey-like, raccoons, quiet deer, some noisy squirrels,  visiting black bears, talking-ravens and talking blue-jays and other various  birds of the air, wild turkeys, stray dogs, and other critters of God-
whatever comes to my door. 
"Man... and.... beast, Thou savest, Lord!"...
"For His mercy is over all that He has made!"

P.S. Our Good God has made all of His wondrous creation, the entire cosmos, this earth and every plant, every animal, we humans and... all, IN SUPREME LOVE!:
 (from Genesis):  "And God saw, that it was good!"
We humans, He meant to be the custodians/guardians/maintainers  of it all. I try, until my strength fails,  and I be called away.

"How marvelous!... are THY! works, O Lord!, there is no tongue!, sufficient!, to hymn THY!  WONDERS!   THOU!  art the God Who workest WONDERS!  ALLELUIA!"

What showing love and mercy to God's critters can produce:

Праздник Преображения прошел в Швеции (ИПЦ Греции).

 The Feast of the Transfiguration was held in Sweden (GOC of Greece).

 Божественная литургия была отслужена в женском монастыре Св. Филофеи.

The Divine Liturgy was served in the St. Filothei convent.

Людей было слишком много, чтобы разместиться в гостевом доме, поэтому духовенству, монахиням и гостям пришлось устроиться на улице под навесом, в то время как сильно шёл дождь.

There were too many people to be accommodated in the guest house, so the clergy, nuns and guests had to get settled in the street, under a canopy, while it was raining heavily.

Экзархат ИПЦ Греции (Синод свт. Хризостома) представлен в Швеции двумя приходами: в Стокгольме — церковь святых Константина и Елены и в Уппсала — церковь Успения Пресвятой Богородицы.

The Exarchate of the Greek GOC (the Synod of St. Chrysostom, the Kallinikos Synod,) is represented in Sweden by two parishes: in Stockholm - the Church of Saints Constantine and Helena and in Uppsala - the Church of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin.
