Inspired by a little-known picture book from the pen of Bethany Tudor, this is a diary, of sorts, where I document some of my thoughts, activities, and ideas as I explore the challenges met by the characters in the story: hard work, the care and nurture of others, housekeeping skills, life changes, charity, community, and cooperation, among others. Like Samuel and Samantha, the ducks in the tale, I struggle and succeed, cope and celebrate, work and play, handling the tasks that come my way. I invite you to join me on my journey.

Lenten Devotions

Now that we are five days into the Lenten season, I finally found a daily devotional for Gooseberry Lane. It is called Time for Renewal and it hails from Lutheran Hour Ministries. Here is the introduction from their website:
In these 40 days leading to Easter, we reflect on God’s love in action through His Son, our Savior, Jesus Christ. And by the power of the Holy Spirit, we are renewed. For it is within these 40 days that we come face to face with the depth of our own sin, the very sin for which Jesus Christ died on the cross. And on Easter we rejoice in victory as we celebrate that Jesus’ death and resurrection give us life with Him for all eternity.
So, take a few minutes in the morning and listen to the daily podcast, accessible in the upper right-hand corner of the blog. It will help you focus your thinking and remain mindful of the reason for this current holiday season.
