the daily cross, 3-18-20

As long as I’m sitting here staring at the walls I might as well show you one of the walls I’m staring at. These are crosses and Jesus-related pictures I have gathered over the decades. Some have been picked up at trinket shops, used item stores, received as gifts, ones which have been in the…… Continue reading the daily cross, 3-18-20

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

the daily purge 3-8-19

The Purging Lutheran does my due diligence when it comes to poring over facts and figures on items I am throwing away. 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

When The Purging Lutheran types the word ‘technology’ your mind probably races to envision all sorts of science fictiony computers, robots and self-replicating viruses. And well it should but did you know that technology is nothing more than the extension of the human body? Computers are attempts to categorize or enhance the creativity/computational skills of…… Continue reading the daily purge 1-11-19
