A proverb for every need
Our house is full of laughter, good food and great joy this week and it's given me cause to rejoice. Here's one reason: When I put my first thoughts based on the Book of Proverbs into a weekly piece, I believed that it was a "one shot deal". Over the past six months as I've shared weekly insights from this Old Testament book, I quickly realized that nothing's changed over the centuries; struggles are common, selfishness crops up in every person but wisdom teaches us how to avoid a lot of pain. Read more...

Stay well rooted
For the first time in a number of years, I'm truly excited about my vegetable garden. For one thing, I'm finally retired from my work as a business writer and now have time to spend weeding and nurturing both the flowers and edibles. Digging in the dirt never felt so good. Read more...

A time to celebrate
For North American readers, July is a month to celebrate. We Canadians mark July 1 as Canada Day, in tribute to our 151 years as a nation; to the south, our friends and neighbours celebrate their 242nd birthday on July 4th. Happy birthday to all of us! Read more...

A purpose in it all
Constructed in 1944 in California and known locally as one of four Hulks, YOGN-82 formed part of a breakwater at the local Catalyst Paper plant in Powell River for a number of years. Yesterday it sank or, more accurately, was deliberately sunk. As recorded in our local Powell River Peak, "It was one of ten wartime ships purchased by the Powell River Company to serve as the pulp and paper mill's breakwater. As mill production ceased, so did the need for so many Hulks." Read more...

Sing a song
For a town our size, we are extraordinarily blessed with music. With a population of under 20,000 and with access only by boat or plane, we regularly host two international events. Since its founding six years ago, June is enriched annually by the music of the Pacific Region International Music Academy (PRISMA); then, every two years, the month of July erupts with the glorious harmonies of Kathaumiwx, a choral event founded in 1984. Symphonic instrumentalists come together in June while singers from around the world gather every other July; both events boast attendance in the thousands, including musicians and attendees. Read more...

The proof is in the pudding
We live in a world where exploring every religious or spiritual option is the popular thing to do so; simple as it sounds, accepting Scripture as inspired is seen as "outdated". While it's one thing to read the Bible, it's another to know how to apply it to one's life. The proof is in the pudding - or the living.  Read more...

The blessings of a neighbour
We are blessed to live in an area of our town that is rich in neighbourly friendliness. Over the years we've watched children grow into adults; seen mundane, even derelict, yards transformed into award-winning gardens; and, we've developed friendships that have grown richer over the years. As the wife of a former pastor, we've moved too often for my liking so the privilege of being part of an established neighbourhood for the past 15 years is a privilege I relish. Read more...
