​Peace in the midst of pain
I spent another few but painful hours in hospital this week. It turned out to be relatively easy to deal with this time and a shot of morphine helped dull the agony. But these episodes, as unpleasant as they are, always provide me with cause for great gratitude. That gratitude is in response to the excellent care I receive in our local hospital and even more, for the wonderful offers of help and encouragement that I receive from friends and neighbours. Be assured, then, this is not about whining but rather about praising God for peace. Peace in the midst of pain. Read more...

Stones of security
As hard as it is for me to believe, it’s 17 years ago this fall since we moved to British Columbia. There are so many memories of the joyful reunion with our sons, their wives and our two granddaughters. One in particular stands out. Read more...

A time to celebrate
I’m not alone in saying that we’re tired of hearing nothing on the news but COVID-19, riots and protests and scorching heat or pelting rain. In light of all that, I’ve decided we need to celebrate! Read more...

How to spell unity
A definite advantage of this pandemic situation is the number of ways in which we are learning more and more about unity; I know there are riots and protests, but I’m talking about our town and, in particular, our local neighbourhood. We’re always checking on and sharing with one another. Read more...

Kind, calm and safe
As the Provincial Health Officer for British Columbia, Dr. Bonnie Henry is highly respected and appreciated for the way she has handled information about the spread of corona virus and for how she has provided information for us residents. Now she is rightfully being recognized internationally. Read more...

From fear to faith
For those of you, my readers, who are not acquainted with the Upper Sunshine Coast of British Columbia, we live in a relatively small but isolated community. It’s beautiful almost beyond description with ocean views out front of our home and lush forests behind us. As an added bonus, we’re technically accessible only by plane or by boat. Read more...

Uplifting zucchini
Yesterday morning a neighbour brought me a freshly picked zucchini, the first one we’ve had this season. That act of kindness got me thinking about the power of this oft-maligned vegetable. First, if ever there was a prolific garden vegetable, it’s got to be zucchini. Even one or two plants can become nearly overwhelming, so much so that I stopped growing them a few years back. Boasting their beautiful yellow blossoms, they seem to pop out of the green growth, ten at a time. Read more...

Ending and beginning
The majority of our pot-banging neighbourhood population voted to end our nightly ritual. No one’s surprised; after all, these past three months have been anything but easy and although the pleasure of greeting friends and neighbours can’t be overlooked, neither can the freedom that comes with the gradual opening of businesses and holiday venues. I look upon the decision as a wise one, one that incorporates the end of one good thing and the beginning of another new, and hopefully, better phase. Read more...
