I Hope I Never Forget:

“Anything that one imagines of God apart from Christ is only useless thinking and vain idolatry.”- Martin Luther

And there was war in heaven, Michael and his angels waging war with the dragon. And the dragon and his angels waged war, and they were not strong enough, and there was no longer a place found for them in heaven. And the great dragon was thrown down, the serpent of old who Is called the Devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world; he was thrown down to the earth, and his angels were thrown down with him.

The Revelation of St. John

Three guests joined us this year for our Michaelmas celebration. That made eleven of us thanking God for ordering things in such a way that men and women are privileged to stand beside angelic warriors for the cause of King Jesus. But more than that, in Him (like Lucy, Susan, Peter and Edmund) we stand as the Captains of these ancient and fierce warriors. Unbelievable!

We spent the morning and early afternoon at the Ringgod Middle School Duck Race. The weather cooled down and it was a glorious day. But this meant that our celebration would have to come later in the evening.

You'd think from the pose that I'd killed the thing myself, but alas, I had it flown in from Romania. This was the first time many of those present had every eaten Roasted Dragon's Tongue.

Though the tongue's the least expensive cut, it was still too costly to allow any to go to waste; so we made Dragon Slime Bread. Delicious!

Michaelmas Pie, an old Irish recipe.

It went great with vanilla ice cream.
