- Beloved Truth Ministries was the first online Precept Bible study site I found several years ago, but after a year or two the moderator/hostess moved on to set up and run the online Bible study site for Precept Ministries and BTM went by the wayside. But happily Beloved Truth is now back up and running again if anyone is looking for another option. Apparently it's been back in action for about a year but the last couple years have been so swamped for me, I somehow missed the announcement about it.
- Albert Mohler's blog post "Why So Many Churches Hear So Little of the Bible" is spot-on in my opinion. The church I'm currently visiting is okay (there aren't many churches up here) but they basically have NO Scripture reading at all, other than snippets of verses on two large TV screens, and they almost never read longer sections (even paragraphs) to keep everything in context. I'm used to hearing at least one whole chapter read during the service and miss it. And of course, if they'd play at least one hymn (with good doctrine) at each Sunday service and not just happy-clappy music, that would be an improvement as well (in my humble opinion at any rate).
- JStationery has new Pilot Frixion Ball 4 Multi pens for $10.95. The refills come in black, blue, red and green ink. JetPens probably has them as well but JStationery has free shipping on orders of $20 or more and last time I checked JetPens, you needed an order of $25 to qualify for free shipping. I like using fine point Frixion pens for my Bible marking (see Precept Camden's post about them), as well as Sakura Micron pens and Twistables colored pencils. But do not use Frixion pens for your daily to-do/shopping lists if you, like me, often set that list on the dashboard when running all your errands. I learned the hard way that my whole list would disappear in a matter of seconds and holding it in front of the AC vent wasn't cold enough bring it back. And it's probably wise not to set your open Bible on the dashboard either.
Frugal links ~ Depression era recipes:
- Fried Cabbage with Pasta sounds good
- Hoover Stew reminds me of a cheap meal my grandma used to make, but she didn't bother with the pasta and usually served the stew with rolls and carrot and celery slices. My husband, being 3rd generation Asian American, learned to make it with hot dogs and onion slices stir fried in shoyu (soy sauce) and served over rice, but that's too salty for my tastebuds.
