A Mother’s Heart (Pt 3 Ponderings)

I can remember the day that I walked into Chilliwack Hospital for my very first ultrasound as a newly pregnant Mom to  meet my new baby  – Ashley.   Now this was over 30+ years ago and ultrasounds were not then what they are today.   I can’t believe how much detail there is in…

A Mother’s Heart pt3 “Anchor not a tow rope”

Ashley’s third surgery was done last week and now we wait on more healing to take place (She will have an update when she is up to it to get specific details)  We are so thankful for faithful prayers and friendship from family and friends. This last while I have been drawn to think of…

Motorcycle Mourning (ponderings)

There wasn’t a whole lot that could be compared to the feeling of being on the back of a motorcycle with the man of your dreams.  Sharing the quiet times and the cool breeze of riding on a hot and sunny day.   Somehow, the scenery is just much more vibrant and beautiful than can…

Everyday with Darwin (ponderings)

It is amazing really how much fuss is made over Valentines’ day.   As soon as New Years is done the hearts start showing up everywhere.   Probably my favourite place to see hearts commercially is in Starbucks.  After all they have new cups with hearts!!!  (Ask my husband about my love for Starbucks cups)….

Patient Care (Ponderings)

With the health challenge that is facing my girl right now we are spending many hours in hospital.   I was a nurse many years ago and remember coming on shift, doing my job and as was often the case, would carry someone’s illness or injury home in my heart.  I loved the job and…

Thanks!

I wanted to take a few minutes to thank everyone that recently signed up to receive emails from my faith and life journey blog.  For over a year now I have been writing a weekly “reflection” of things I am learning as I walk through my time in my Bible and life.   Here is…

Homeless and Heartbroken (pondering)

Driving down the streets over the years it has become so very obvious that homelessness has continued to rise at a rapid rate. Men, Women, Teens and Children, all with a story. I don’t believe that there are many that are choosing this lifestyle, but rather a choice of theirs that went wrong, a choice…

In Law vs Out Law

Remember the days of Bonanza and Have Gun – Will Travel?   (Wow, I am aging myself here!)  There was always an outlaw or “bad guy”.   Then of course Paladin, or Little Joe or Ben Cartwright would save the day, the ranches, or towns would be in order once again and all was well….

Nurses, easy job right?

Nurses have an easy job right?  After all, they just go around “bugging” people to get temperatures, blood pressures and find out when you last used the bathroom, right? You can’t be serious !   For those of you that didn’t know it, I was once a nurse, an LPN (Licensed Practical Nurse).   I…

In Flander’s Field

I can remember many times as a child reciting the poem written by a Canadian physician  Lieutenant-Colonel John McCrae.   I could always remember “In Flander’s Fields the poppies blow, between the crosses row by row…..” And that was it.    For whatever reason I could never retain the whole poem.   Year after year…
