Hello, dear ones, I hope this post finds you all well past your turkey daze. We had a great episode planned for yesterday, discussing the Reformed history of the pilgrims. As I went to edit it, the entire folder disappeared from my computer and backup drive. Have I mentioned that I’m not good with technology? I have no idea what happened, but I do know that it might be time to retire this old mac. I apologize for having nothing for posting or dropping yesterday, by the time I finished talking with the help desk guests were nearly on their way and I needed to finish food prep. I surely hope you all had a wonderful time yesterday, if you’re from the United States. Becca and I would love to see your photos of feasting, and to share them on the program. If you’ve got some new babies or grand babies you’d like to show off, send them our way and we’ll make sure they end up getting some spotlight. Whats coming next week? We’re going to be scrambling a bit, since my computer once again deleted so much content. However, for sure you can expect to see Justin Peter’s interview drop.
I have three recommendations for you this week, dear friends. The first is a pastor who I have been particularly blessed by, which our good friend Tom from ExCatholicForChrist shared with me. As a bit of intrigue I’m not actually going to tell you who it is, but if you’ll follow this link, and you’ve followed this blog long enough, you’ll figure it out. Second I have a new blogger I’d like to recommend. Let’s give Melanie Brooke a big Word Press Welcome! Look for a guest post from her soon. Last recommendation was actually recommended to me by the hosts of The Aquila & Pricilla Hour, you know Emily from HeMadeUsAlive. They recommended a podcast entitled Church History Matters, and having listened to it, I can officially add it to my list of favorite podcasts.
Kayliegh and I finally had the chance to watch the new Pilgrims Progress movie together. It’s really great, although there are a few moments where it might be too frightening for younger kiddos. I also never appreciate the idea of making Satan look like a red horned devil, if I’m totally honest. He comes as an angel of light, giving children the wrong impression about him just gives parents a harder time Biblically addressing him. Other then that, it was very well done. I recommend this for families and kiddos over the age of 10, unless your little ones don’t scare easily. There were several points where Kayliegh, 9-years-old, had to leave the room while I fast-forwarded it. Granted, she’s read the book so many times she already new when the frightening moments were coming, so that made it much easier. You can rent, or buy, this movie on most online streaming websites including Amazon and YouTube.
My suggestion for you, dear ones, this weekend is that you each try a new flavor of ice cream. This is something I never do, I get the exact same every time. It’s Kayliegh’s favorite, and since she often tries new kinds that she doesn’t like I have a backup plan already waiting to share with her. This weekend I think I’ll be brave, and really considering it’s going to be below freezing and snowing, not very smart, and try something new. What is your favorite ice cream, and what do you recommend I try? I can’t wait to hear it, and to see your photo’s! If you follow us on social media you can send them there, or via email at email@example.com. As always beloved brethren, be good Berean’s and study to show yourselves approved.
