The wisdom of mom
As I pen these words, it's Mother's Day, and I'm blessed by the flowers, cards and words of my husband and our two sons. Highly respected within their respective communities, both our boys – oops, men – have contributed so much to the lives of so many, including ours. Read more...

All that I need
​​​The wisdom of Agur, the son of Jakeh – a truly modest beginning to a chapter filled with truth. It is believed that Agur lived in the same era as Solomon but the only thing we know about him is found in the 30th chapter of Proverbs. His name comes from the Hebrew meaning "collector" and some Bible scholars believe that the names that follow, Ithiel and Ucal, refer to Hebraic terms meaning, "I am weary, I am tired out". Ever felt that way? I certainly have! Agur claims no high status but what we glean from his words are powerful exhortations as to how we are to live. Read more...

Sit Heel! Enjoy!
We live on a quiet but busy street in the original neighbourhood of our city. Once home to many of the earliest settlers working for a paper-manufacturing company, it's now the scene of a mini-revival; people are moving here because beautiful old homes can be purchased and renovated for a fraction of the cost of a home in the Lower Mainland area of our province. One of the things I most enjoy is watching school children and teens walking to and from the two schools just down the street; the other, watching people walking their dogs. Read more...

Let your light shine
​​​A number of years ago I purchased a CD by a group called Freedom Singers; I've never stopped listening to or being blessed by, their music. One song in particular and one line in particular of a song titled Daystar, challenges me every time I hear it. It goes like this: "Let Your light shine through me in the night". Read more...

Ah, those buts
​​​In returning to my thoughts on the Book of Proverbs, warnings that I'd read about for decades suddenly jumped out at me. Although I'd been reading the chapter corresponding to each day of the month, all those "buts" took on a new significance. Read more...

Comfort in sorrow
I had every intention of continuing in my Proverbs series this week but given the tragic circumstances of the deaths and suffering of those associated with the Humboldt Broncos bus accident, I want to express my condolences. As well, my heart's desire is to offer comfort and strength in the face of indescribable pain. That desire has led me to draw my inspiration from the Book of Psalms. Read more...

Take heed to wise counsel
As a published writer and complimented baker of pies, I am aware of the power of ingredients; but even more so, of the manner in which ingredients are put together. In one of my more painful experiences in life, I wrote what I thought was an excellent book and paid handsomely to have it published. Simply put, it flopped. Although there may be more than one reason, I do know my refusal to take the publisher's advice re naming the book had a lot to do with it – the title I'd chosen didn't adequately relate to the contents. It was a sobering lesson in learning to take wise counsel. Read more...
