11:53 PM Earlier this evening Marlene and I went to Cucina Paradiso, a very fine Italian restaurant at 814 North Blvd. in Oak Park. It’s a friendly, bright and airy restaurant, and although this was our first visit, I’m sure it won’t be the last. Recommended: the fried green tomatoes for an appetizer, the bread pudding (a massive portion) for dessert. Everyone seemed to enjoy their dishes. I had the chicken pistachio and loved every bite.

10:22 AM Finished a 22-mile bike ride. South on East Avenue, then meandering east and south to 26th Street, east across Laramie and Cicero, then I thought I was getting on Ogden but it was still 26th, further east, across Pulaski, then into Little Village, and finally to the Cook County Jail at 29th and California. An awesome and forbidding sight. Quite a few copies of “An Anchor for the Soul” have been distributed there. Then north on Marshall, through Douglas Park, across the Eisenhower, north on Sacramento, west on Madison, back to Oak Park, and home. A good ride on a beautiful morning for riding.

7:27 AM In a few weeks, Broadman & Holman will release my newest book, “He’s God and We’re Not: The Seven Laws of the Spiritual Life.” Here is a sneak peek from the website. Here’s the Legacy Campaign prayer request for today: “Pray for Bulley and Andrews Company, the general contractor for the project.”

In the book of Proverbs, King Solomon left us a treasure trove of practical principles for daily living. The ardent pursuit of wisdom is every Chistian’s calling! Wisdom “is a tree of life to those who embrace her. Those who lay hold of her will be blessed.” (Proverbs 3:18)

“Equipping and encouraging people to keep believing in Jesus”

“Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.”
