Join me and other Catholic bloggers at Jen’s Conversion Diary for 7 Quick Takes Friday.
1. March for Life and Other Prayer Intentions
Prayers to all those participating in the March for Life today! Keep warm! (I’m glad the Canadian March for Life is in May!)
Check out this wonderful pro-life article by Jen Fulwiler.
Also, continued prayers for Jen and Fulton.
2. No Wheat!
I’ve been on a “no wheat” diet and, so far, I haven’t missed it. I love pasta, but when I make pasta for the family, I make rice for myself. My favorite “wheat” product is soft pretzels and, thankfully, I live in Canada where soft pretzels are few and far between! (I will have to exercise extreme self-control when I visit my family in New Jersey, though!)
It has been bitterly cold this week here in the Ottawa Valley. For the past three days, the low has been minus 38 Celsius and there’s been a frostbite warning. I’m thankful that we have a wood stove although we’re burning about four logs an hour!
4. The Abolitionists
Over the past three weeks, I’ve been watching a PBS Series called “The Abolitionists.” Riveting docu-drama about the long fight to end slavery.
7. A Subtle Grace Book Cover
In case you missed the blog and Facebook posts about my upcoming novel’s cover, here it is! A Subtle Grace is the sequel to In Name Only, although the books have been written to be read independent of the other. (For a richer reading experience, it’s better to read both…) Tentative Release Date is Fall, 2013. To see both covers check out yesterday’s blog post.
