Who I am
I’ve been doing a lot of thinking about the matter of individualism. Two things triggered this introspection, both of which were totally unexpected a few days ago. The first was an impulse to respond to an invitation to nominate someone for a special treat. I’d love the prize, not so much for the honour but for the opportunity to travel to share time with a dearly loved group of people. No more details, sorry, and my nomination is confidential. Read more...

We're family!
In many parts of Canada, Family Day (Jour de la famille in Quebec) is celebrated on the third Monday of February. Not only does it provide a day off in the middle of winter, its real purpose is to remind us of, and to celebrate with, those who constitute “family” for us. Read more...

Filling in the blanks
I freely admit it. I’m addicted to doing crossword puzzles. Plain and simple, I take every opportunity I can to relax in my favourite chair, take out my pencil and eraser and start filling in blanks. There are at least three things I’ve noted that parallel my life and, in particular, my spiritual life. Read more...

Rain and raised eyes
Rain, rain, go away. Don’t come back for another day… or week; by the way, given the forecast, at least a couple more weeks would be great. Even as I sit in my office typing this article, I continue to stare out at leaden grey skies and bouncing rain on the porch, while staring towards well-hidden islands off our coastline. Add to my discomfort, the power of near gale-force winds that have shut down our ferries…so don’t wonder why I’m sipping hot tea while wrapped up in a blanket. Poor me. Read more...

Lift me up
Although the definition is simple, encouragement has tremendous power. The ability to provide inspiration, spirit, or hope to someone is far more significant than the word itself might imply. Just this week I was informed of an act of remembrance directed to a former pastor by those affected by his life and ministry. We were each invited to write a note of personal remembrance of how he touched our lives. Here’s part of what I wrote:” You not only helped heal my wounds by your powerful preaching of the Word but also by your tender and compassionate attitude…” I will always associate that person with the word “encouragement”. Read more...

A matter of perspective
Burr. It’s so cold! How long is this winter going to last? These are the questions flying around our community recently. Read more...

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 om
