I forget, God doesn't
During the children's segment of one morning service, our pastor spoke to the children about the meaning and significance of the rite of Communion. He introduced the subject by saying that on three separate Sundays he would address the subjects of Remembrance, Communion and...oops, I forgot the third topic. Read more...

Surprised with goodness
We all know that not all surprises are pleasant; indeed, some are unpleasant and others can be downright tragic. In contrast to those, I want to share some of the lovely surprises I've experienced this past week. Read more...

You're almost old
Strolling through a local shopping centre, I spied one of the cutest little boys I've seen (since my own two grew up, of course).
