Dear Lord, there is a lot of work to do. It can be so pressing! But thank You for doing all that truly needs to be done. Thank You for this world and these people around us. Thank You for every opportunity to do good. Thank You for loving us even despite ourselves because of Your Son. Help us to recognize which opportunities are truly ours and which are better filled by others. Help us also to recognize anew Your gifts and Your blessings every day. Through Jesus Christ Your Son, amen.

It Must Be the Noodles

Another Lutheran author!

You may have to take it from me, but Wendish noodles are amazing!! As is Wendish potato salad!! 

A sequel is already in the works and both sound absolutely charming!

Whoops

Whoops! I started to blog last night, set the draft to publish the next morning as I typically do, and then we lost electricity due to a storm. By the time electricity was back on, we were all in bed.

I’ll finish what I started, just not yet. Gotta get homeschooling done! God willing, I’ll have a good post for you at the usual time tomorrow morning.

Blessings on your day!

Unexpected Influence

Sometimes I’m struck by what unexpected influence exists in my life. (This is a bit of a continuation from yesterday’s post, as I was waxing a little sentimental at the time.)

Stressed about Finances

A while back Crossway, famous for publishing the ESV Bible, asked me to contribute an online article with the title, “Help! I’m Feeling Stressed about Finances.” It’s now up and ready for your consideration. I tried to plunge deep while keeping it real. I’ll leave it to you whether I succeeded. 🙂
