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.

Another Lutheran author! I’m so pleased to introduce you to Lutheran author, poet, and retired pastor Ray Spitzenberger. 🙂 He’s graciously sent in a guest post, but even before we get to that, I’d like to turn your attention to his book, It Must Be the Noodles & Other Wendish Stories from Mama’s Texas Kitchen. 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! 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!
Rumor has it there may be a Lutheran writers’ conference next June!!! AND rumor has it that Kloria Publishing may soon illustrate Now Rest Beneath Night’s Shadow. Yay, yay, yay!!!
I will, of course, try to keep you posted.
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.)
Here’s your friendly reminder that the CPH Reads program only runs through August 2nd. So look up your GoodReads account and start copying over what you’ve read this summer, and maybe look up your few remaining titles.
Happy reading!! I’m hopin’ you got some Lutheran authors in there! 🙂
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. 🙂
