The first cup of caffè americano in Rome rivals Wally’s.   Lamentations 3:22-24 God’s loyal love couldn’t have run out,     his merciful love couldn’t have dried up. They’re created new every morning.     How great your faithfulness! I’m sticking with God (I say it over and over).     He’s all I’ve got left.

Ittsa teenie, tiny tube filled with metal tools useful for precision work. The Purging Lutheran would be able to use the mini-sized screwdriver to tighten screws holding hinges on my frames. I could righty-tighty and lefty-loosie small screws on any number of small items. What kind of small items could be worked on with the…… Continue reading the daily purge 8-13-19

Technoworld welcomes The Purging Lutheran to The 21st Century! I rec’d this Smartwatch just yesterday and already it appears I have moved 7.48. 7.48 something. It certainly isn’t miles. I’ve certainly moved more than 7.48 feet and yards. So, 7.48 what? Maybe it’s not even measuring me. Is it measuring itself? I don’t know. Why do…… Continue reading the purchasing lutheran 7-19-19

Usually, there’s too much information to use during my 30 – 120 minutes of therapy. I looked up what I thought would be oodles of synonyms for the word ‘moccasin’. All I found…… Continue reading the daily purge 3-8-19

The Purging Lutheran did not buy this necklace for My Sweet Rib. I am not sure how MSR happened upon this necklace made of blue cubes. But are they all cubes? Some of them look like dice which could be used in a game of ‘dice’. Others not. In casino-themed movies a man in a…… Continue reading the daily purge 2-5-19
