The very first verses my Mom had me memorize was the 23rd Psalm. Even if you aren’t a person of faith, I am sure you will be familiar with it. It shows up on posters, pictures, and every now and again on social media. It was from the King James Version of the Bible that…
Keep in mind that even in the darkest of storms there is hope for sunshine. The rain doesn’t pour for ever, and the roar of the thunder doesn’t pierce the sound waves unending.

Casting Crowns has a song that has many times resonated in my heart throughout this year. “Praise You in This Storm”. Not only has the pandemic hit us all hard in 2020, but it has kept me away from my 100 year old Dad and that has been much harder than I could have even imagined.

I am blessed to still have my Dad in my life and in my 60’s. He is soon going to be 100 years old and….
Mom, I miss you. I live with great hope that the Jesus Mom taught me about and lived an example of what it is to be faithful to Him, is who she is with.
He is Risen! He is Risen indeed! Rings through out the Christian faith on each and every Easter Sunday. Although the fun around Easter Bunny is front line in marketing, the true meaning of easter isn’t about the cute dude with all the chocolate!
I have been a Christian for a long time, a really long time actually. Time is not a measure of maturity, both in physical age and in christian faith. It is 3:30 am and I am awake. As Wife, Mom, Mother in Law, Grammy, Daughter, Sister and friend my heart is heavy, Lots going on…
I opened my curtains and what did I see? This beautiful sky staring back at me. I was amazed at its beauty and stepped out through the door. I was greeted by a fresh breeze my soul was hungry for more. Our curtains in life surround us each day. We can make our choice to…
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?!
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.
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.
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.
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.
This past week there have been many plans taken place for an event that we will never attend, ………our own funerals.
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…
” 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 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?”
“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.
