Keep your eyes on the goal
It was while cutting heavy brown paper to wrap around a parcel destined to another province that I realized the truth that I wanted to share in this week's offering. That truth comes from a most simple action. You see, for years the simple task of cutting paper the right size usually resulted in a hunk far too long on one side and, usually, too short on the other. Unless I got a ruler and drew a line, the results were rarely what I'd envisioned. Read more...

How do I escape?
Since moving to this almost idyllic place along the shores of the Pacific Ocean, there's always been a nagging thought in the back of my mind: How would we get out of here in an emergency? Read more...

Who chooses who?
Here in Canada, our next federal election is scheduled to take place this fall; on, or before, October 21, 2019, to be exact. In the USA, elections will be held, in some states, on Tuesday, November 5, 2019. Read more...

When I don't know what to say
Have you ever found yourself trying desperately to come up with an idea or solution to what you think shouldn't be that hard? That's been me this week. I've been writing these weekly articles for more than twenty years and although it's never been "a snap", I usually decide on a topic mid week and mull on it before sitting down to put my thoughts into words. This week? Not so. After a lot of mental scrounging and, I admit, much prayer, I decided to go with the topic of When I Don't Know What to Say. Read more...

Making music with cymbals
Reading through more lists of names and assignments in the Old Testament, I've confessed before and now reiterate my confession that I sometimes find them challenging (probably "boring" is more accurate but not sure I should use that word when referring to God's Word). To redeem myself while sensing those emotions, I also pray regularly that God would teach me something valuable from these portions of Scripture, even when I sometimes wonder what that something could possibly be. Read more...

Between then and when
Approximately six months ago we received the exciting news: Granddaughter Sarah is getting married! Actually, though, excitement is too mild a descriptive but you get what I mean – we were over the moon. Both beautiful young people with hearts to serve the Lord, I wasted no time in booking a flight for the event. That was then. Read more...

Making mountains melt
I don't know that I'll ever forget that day in 1980 when Mount St. Helens erupted. At the time we lived in the southern part of British Columbia, just an hour from the Canadian-US border and not far from the infamous site. Although we didn't see the extent of the upheaval, we certainly felt its effects. For a few days our skies were dark with smoke and ash and Hubby spent time each day cleaning the debris off our car. Read more...

The passing of time
Who of us hasn't uttered or heard the following words: What time is it? What time do we have to leave? When? Read more...
