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


This week is a busy one for our family. We are preparing to move our oldest child to college on Thursday. I'm not certain how my heavy heart is going to deal with that. My son jokes that I'm going to stand beneath his window and wail. He may not be far from the truth -- just kidding.

Anyway, he picked all of our dinners this week, since he won't get his favorite foods for a while. On Thursday we'll grab a bite on our way to campus since he has to move in between 6 and 9 p.m. And on Friday, we have Homecoming at SC, which is always lots of fun. I'll look forward to that.

Dinner: BBQ Chicken Pizza

Brunch: Sausage Gravy and biscuits, eggs
Coconut Shrimp with Pineapple Salsa, baked potatoes
