Merciful God, You are great in compassion and Your tenderness for us is without measure. We ask You to give us today our daily bread, and also provide for the needs of all of Your hungry children around the world. Through Christ Your Son and Our Lord. Amen.

Weekly Menu

We have another busy feast week this week. No guarantees on whether I'll get done all I have planned. Not that I have much planned, but we have a busy week. Saturday we're celebrating the 18th birthday of my first born. Ugh. I can't believe how old that makes me feel. I can't possibly have an 18 year old.

Anyway, we're celebrating Saturday with a psedo-Oktoberfest feast. It's really too late for Oktoberfest, but since my son and many of his friends are German 4 students at the community college, we thought we'd make it a German party. We'll have family and about 10 friends, so it should be a fun celebration -- a big fire outside on a cool fall night and, of course, games inside. I'll have to check into some German tunes.
