Buying back the farm
A quote, posted above my computer, and an article I recently read, prompted these thoughts. Having said that, I can’t describe how painful I find our recent news broadcasts, TV coverage and on-line posts nor how blessed I was to read the following newspaper article, so blessed in fact, that it brought tears to my eyes. I hope it’s not “fake news” but even if it is, it was wonderfully refreshing. Read more...

I call it care
I admit that there are some weeks when I struggle to find something to share with my readers. Because I am picky, I want that “something” to convey a specific message without coming across as “preachy” or high-minded. Not so this week; in fact, as I sit in front of this screen, I’m struggling to decide what to include and want to omit. Read more...

Into a new decade
I clearly recall the hubbub around the end of 1999 and the beginning of 2000. Predictions of possible tragedies and changes in our world swirled around and figuratively, at least, we bit our tongues, hoping only good things would come from this leap from one decade to another. Read more...

I’ve heard it and, I am quick to say that I believe it, but it’s far too easy to take it for granted. Read more...

Oh little town of Bethlehem
For a long time, I’d assumed that Bethlehem was a bustling, prosperous city; the key word being, “assumed”. Then years ago, I discovered that wasn’t always the case but I didn’t pursue the matter any farther. When I decided to use the most famous Christmas hymn, “O little town of Bethlehem’ as a foundation for this week’s article I wanted to gather a few verifiable facts about this iconic place. Read more...

Changing my world
Lately I’ve been cleaning out my office. After combing through a quarter-century of published articles and studies, I was ready to toss it all out and forget about saving what I’d deemed essential. So glad I didn’t and here’s why. Read more...

The colours of our world
A family member from the prairies recently visited us and it was not only a delightful time together, her constant remarks prompted this week’s article. “Just look at those colours,” she’d repeat regularly and often. She was right, they were spectacular. Read more...
