I found time to read a novel recommended by my mother-in-law. It’s called Unwritten by Charles Martin. He isn’t a Lutheran so I’m not reviewing the book here, but I enjoyed the read and was thinking about something he added to the end of the book about overwriting.

I jotted down some notes from the other day to think about later. I’ll share them here in case Sabbath structure thoughts interest you. 🙂
