Kev’s Take On 08/27/2022

I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the Republic for which it stands, One nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.

Events and Celebrations

 JUST BECAUSE DAY encourages us to break from the norm and do something for no other reason than – just because.  Is there a place you always wanted to visit?  How about a hobby you always wanted to try?  Today is the day to try something for which you need no excuse to do so.

Our dessert of the day gives us an excuse to break out our little ramekins.  You know, those little ceramic cups that you can bake and eat out of.  POTS DE CRÈME DAY celebrates this loose custard that is smooth and creamy.  Little cups of this flavorful dish will bring a big taste to please your palate.

Dear Heavenly Father, as we start a new school year, may you place a hedge of protection around the students and staff.  The violence needs to end, and our kids need to be kept safe, so they thrive in their learning.  I ask this in your name, Jesus, Amen.
