Daily Bread

My other thought Sunday was about daily bread. Maybe I haven’t mentioned this here yet, but I’m kind of into it. Eating and drinking, yes, cooking and preparing, yes, but also the concept and importance of it as a gift from God. And, it’s daily! That’s significant, yet too often overlooked or underappreciated. Anyway, you know how the Israelites could have no leftovers from the Passover? It’s a demonstration of a day’s bread, built on the promise that God must Himself provide for the future meals!!

Unless I See

I had two unexpected thoughts today, once in Bible Study discussing the Passover and the other during the sermon. You know how Thomas says, “Unless I see in His hands the print of the nails, and put my finger into the print of the nails, and put my hand into His side, I will not believe”? (Admittedly, I’m more pro-Thomas than many.) It occurred to me that here is a profound reliance upon the Incarnation. While Thomas should have believed from Jesus’ own words, surely we can understand him doubting the manic-and-rather-paranoid disciples.

Until as a Theological Statement

Until as a Theological Statement. Have you thought about it? I was reading a book to my seven-year old daughter, and at the end she said she didn’t like it. Didn’t approve. Why? Because why in the world would the author say Jesus is with you until morning light? I’ll admit I smiled pretty brightly at that level of recognition!

Knowledge of Him

I’m still finding resources for my free resource page, Crafts and Crafted for Free, so here’s another one: Knowledge of Him. Their goal is to provide free, easy to use resources that encourage you in your daily walk with Christ and pursuit of the knowledge of Him. Their focus is on encouraging reading Scripture and daily prayer, but I suspect they have plans to expand and they are very open to requests and suggestions. Woo hoo! 🙂

A Reintroduction

(Blessed Easter Monday! Christ is risen! He is risen indeed! Alleluia!)          I’ve had another book idea. It’s kind of basic. So basic, in fact, that I’m surprised it hasn’t been done. It would be a reintroduction to Christianity, suitable to hand to unbelievers, especially those who acknowledge they don’t know much about Jesus.

Good Friday 2017

“What language shall I borrow
To thank Thee, dearest Friend,
For this Thy dying sorrow,
Thy pity without end?
O make me Thine forever!
And should I fainting be,
Lord, let me never, never,
Outlive my love for Thee.” 

“O Sacred Head, Now Wounded,” stanza 8
by Paul Gerhardt, 1607-1676

Big Dreams

I’m still taking a blogging break for Holy Week, but if I can share something to this blog’s Facebook page, surely I can share it here, too. Right? So this one is for all of us mommy writers who sometimes struggle with our big dreams.
