Letting it Ride

I’m nearing the end of my second year blogging here. It’s gone pretty well and I’m pleased with how consistently I’ve been able to post five times a week.

Now that I have resource pages up, it also means the website is helpful even apart from posts. That’s been very satisfying to me. I think because it means I spread the word about others and don’t just harp on my own words. 🙂 Suits me fine.

Anyway, I’m going to take a technology break. Probably for two weeks or so. I know plenty of others who advocate the practice but, lol, I don’t want to try it during Advent and Lent when everyone else is doing it!

1 Timothy 4:16

“Keep a close watch on yourself and on the teaching. Persist in this, for by so doing you will save both yourself and your hearers” (ESV). How can people complain about watching doctrine? Let’s take a deep breath and delight in it as the God-given gift it is. 🙂 Thanks, Church, and thanks be to God.

The Hymnus Tree

You know how I like to support Lutheran artists, crafters, and shops. Well, I found another one! The Hymnus Tree has shirts, mugs, and a good Anne of Green Gables printable. 🙂 The shop’s slogan is “Religious and Geek Chic inspired goods.” Ha ha-love it! I’ll add it to my list of Lutheran shops, crafters, etc.

Literature guides?

I keep meaning to ask: if you were to dream about Lutheran resources you’d like to see available for free (aka, not full curriculum, but maybe literature guides or unit studies), what would you like to see?

I don’t wanna

Sometimes good thoughts keep coming to my head. I sit down at my computer and . . . the words just don’t come. I want to write an entire book at that one sitting, but . . . on the other hand, I don’t wanna.
