30 Days

Blessed Reformation Day! Happy 500 years! Happy Hallow’s Eve, depending on when you’re reading this! 🙂 And, happy almost NaNoWriMo!

Two Lutheran Valentine Poems

Happy Valentine’s Day. Here are two Lutheran Valentine poems I whipped up for the occasion, one from a wife, one from a husband. (We’ll also see if condensed versions score any votes at the Sister, Daughter, Mother, Wife‘s annual Valentine Contest.) And, whether you are wed or not, may you ponder the love of Christ for His Bride, the Church, even as it affects us everyday and is memorialized and active in God’s Word and Gifts, on this day and always.
