How Many More Tears?

This morning it is as if my heart is overwhelmed with the inexpressible pain that some families of all nations and ethnicity are and will face. No group, faith, country or city is without risk of this virus. Through the weight of these tears then, how can I still say that God is STILL good?!

Photos – Housebound 2020

I love to take pictures … a lot! Tonight because of the Covid-19 virus we are all being encouraged to stay home. I thought I would take some opportunity to play with some of my photos and reminisce some of our past trips. Stay safe… keep distance ands don’t forget to wash your hands. This…

Pastors & Wives: Sacrifice 2020

This thought has become especially close during this Covid-19 outbreak, pandemic actually. Many churches around the world have had to close the doors due to social distancing, yet they are working hard to find ways to communicate, teach and stand by those that attend their church and those that are seeking after God at this time.

Children: Home and School

Pick up a colouring book… be creative… take on crafts that require nothing more than imagination, some glue, paper and colors. Play games….Read a book… there are many good ones that I bet are hanging around your home.

Politicians: Virus and Voting

With everything that is happening right now with Covid-19 and the affects on our communities, province, country and world the politicians are in a position that not one of them would have had any indication that they would have had to face.

Fear, Virus and Peace

COVID-19 is the big news story around the world right now. Fear grips many and our frailty as humans shows up in panic, just take a look at the toilet paper aisle in your local store, it tells the story.

Moving from here to there

This past week there have been many plans taken place for an event that we will never attend, ………our own funerals.

2020 Family Day

Lights are low, the quiet is pierced only by the sound of my slippers on the carpet. Leaning down I hear the soft sighs of this sleepy child… my child.. my children. I lean over and place a gentle kiss on their forehead and pull the covers up. Each night I whispered and thanked Jesus…

Clearer Vision: 2020

” I tried hard to reason with myself that just because the last two years had heartache to work through doesn’t mean the new year would be the same. I “tried” but found myself walking within a shadow of fear.”

Christmas is not always bright for Everyone.

“Christmas sadness and depression is a real “thing” for some, and one that deserves attention. Commercials paint families happy and life jolly, how can we help each other through seasons of Christmas sadness?”

Our Torn Canada

It is no secret to anyone who lives in Canada that this last election revealed once again the unrest between the eastern and western provinces of our great country. The other day driving through our beautiful city I was over taken with the giant Canadian flag that flies high with pride in one of the…

The Heaven’s Declare

“The heavens declare the glory of God;    the skies proclaim the work of his hands” . Psalm 19:1 The heavens declare the glory of God;    the skies proclaim the work of his hands. Day after day they pour forth speech;    night after night they reveal knowledge. They have no speech, they use no words;    no sound is heard from them. Yet their voice[b] goes out into all the earth,    their…

1st Birthday – Mom

Most times when we think of a 1st birthday it conjures up memories of a 1 yr old digging into a cake for the very first time.   It brings smiles and a sense of happiness.

Why even bother voting?

  “Do the unexpected. Take 20 minutes out of your day, do what young people all over the world are dying to do: vote.” ― Rick Mercer Do you believe your vote counts?   Do you believe you have a voice that is going to make a difference?  If you don’t, you should! Tomorrow, Monday October 21,…

Tea Buns and Tears

It has been awhile since I sat down to write in my blog.  When my Mom passed away in June it was like my desire to write, paint, sing and garden was tucked away with her body as she was buried.  I know my Mom is in the presence of Jesus and I know that…

September 11, 2001 … Silence

I remember where I was, who I was with and what we we doing on September 11, 2001, and I am guessing that you likely do as well.   My nephew phoned and said on the phone to my sister that he was sure we were now at war and for us to turn on the…

Grief – memories sting and heal

For those of you that follow me I hope that you will indulge me writing on my Mom for a while.   My Mom and I were very close in heart and I miss her desperately.   I know of a few friends around me that are in the grieving process too, and others that have waded…

Happy Birthday Dad …. birth to 99

My Dad was born almost 100 years ago….. 99 to be exact.   This month he turns 99 and is doing pretty good if you ask me. Dad was born in the Canadian Prairies into a family of 9 kids, a healthy mix of boys and girls during the great depression.   I can only imagine for…

Pray then like this….

“Now I lay me down to sleep, I pray the Lord my soul to keep.  If I should die before I wake, I pray the Lord my soul to take, Amen.”   That was the prayer that we were taught as little kids.  We would kneel beside the bed, close our hands and bow our heads. …
