Some Sabbath day media I consumed today:
"Give Us This Day Our Daily Bread" by Elder D. Todd Christofferson
"His Grace Is Sufficient" by Brad Wilcox

Alma 61:19-20 and Alma 60:33 (although I read them in hard copy rather than in digital)
The internets, it turns out, can provide many beautiful godly words. A good Sabbath.
P.S. For a bonus, and for your Monday-day viewing, an oddly satisfying commercial.

I'm not big on centerpieces--I think tableware and food done right are so beautiful that they are all the decoration a table needs--but weddings present specific design difficulties often enhanced by something going on. So, for a dear friend (the lovely Rebecca R), I'm investigating possible (a) lovely, (b) possibly functional/tasty, (c) simple, and (d) cost-efficient Autumnal centerpieces for her October wedding luncheon in Portland. Below is mostly just for me and her as I/we brainstorm, but if you are reading this and you want to chime in with a link or idea, feel free.Note: I don't love all of these, but I love some, and I think the rest are inspirational in some way or another.

|Not a huge fan of the mirror or the candle, but I like this as a reminder that even super simple is possible.|
|I think this is especially beautiful.|
|I don't love candles, but this is cool as far as candles go.|
|Maybe with real apples instead of candlapples.|
|Super easy instructions are here. (Note: I plan to make these sometime. I think they are rockstar, even without the banner.)|

Ultimate Coconut Cake
(I made this for Jed for our one-year anniversary yesterday; we haven't yet even finished our original slices of cake, it was SO rich--and so, so decadently, ultimately delicious. Note: I added a sprinkle more of kosher salt to every component, I forgot the sugar syrup, and I doubled the cream cheese in the frosting. Good decisions, all.)
Ruggle's White Chocolate Bread Pudding with Raspberry Sauce
http://www.keyingredient.com/recipes/5473119/ruggles-white-chocolate-bread-pudding/ (I made this for a co-worker's birthday last year. He'd lived in Houston, where Ruggle's is, and this dessert became basically the only one he likes. I haven't stopped making it.)
For Me to Remember
Pan-Cooked Pork with Dried Cherry Sauce
