the daily a little of what we do down here, 6-1-20

For Heidi Heidi is our good friend in Central Indiana. She is married to José (Hello, José!), owns many nice children, a dog, two cars, has a quaint backyard and a fantismo! architectural design to her home. She’s as close to The Lord as one can be, in a tie with our other friend, Julie.* In…… Continue reading the daily a little of what we do down here, 6-1-20

the daily purge (hunting style) 5-6-20

  The Purging Lutheran worked at Borders Bookshop* long ago. A fellow worker handed me a book saying it was ‘a great read’**. I think it was called ‘Winter’ maybe? Or not. It was about a Texan couple who decide to move to Alaska for the winter and write about there experiences. They chopped wood,…… Continue reading the daily purge (hunting style) 5-6-20

the daily climactic change, 2-21-20

(with mega-apologies to the movie, The Exorcist*) Susan: Florida, why did you do this to me? Please, Florida, I’m afraid! Florida: You’re not my resident! Janis: Don’t listen… Get inside! *************************************** Why is Susan wearing a coat just south of Tampa? We went to Bob Evans for breakfast. What did we see out on the…… Continue reading the daily climactic change, 2-21-20

If The Purging Lutheran has an issue with my therapy, which is what these daily posts are a part of, it’s working up the gumption to make an effort. I find that somedays are better left to the ‘professionals’, them what have already writ something I can copy, cut and paste to my advantage. This…… Continue reading the daily lazy 12-17-19

the daily reflection 11-29-19

How sin sees itself. 1 Corinthians 13:12 We don’t yet see things clearly. We’re squinting in a fog, peering through a mist. But it won’t be long before the weather clears and the sun shines bright! We’ll see it all then, see it all as clearly as God sees us, knowing him directly just as…… Continue reading the daily reflection 11-29-19

the daily poke (and more italia) 10-15-19

“Sunday is the only day you have to push like a handcart,’ Thomas wrote in The Book Of Everything. ’ The other days roll down the bridge by themselves.” ― Guus Kuijer, The Book of EverythIng Ephesians 4:20-24 But that’s no life for you. You learned Christ! My assumption is that you have paid careful…… Continue reading the daily poke (and more italia) 10-15-19

the daily purge 7-16-19

The Purging Lutheran readily admits I know hardly anything about the Amish lifestyle but if I had to muster up a guess at what an Amish woman’s shoes looked like, they would be these. They are black, appear easy to slip on (and off) and, frankly, a little ‘clunky’ looking. That’s not a criticism only…… Continue reading the daily purge 7-16-19
