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...

A glorious temple
What makes someone beautiful? I went to my trusty computer to search out some quotes pertaining to my question, here are just two of them:  Read more...

One a day
One of the things I recall from years past is an advertising ditty that went like this: "A [something] a day keeps the doctor away". I don't recall what that something was but the lilt and the rhyme have continued, prompting these thoughts about influence. Read more...

Me real Canadian
One of the things I most enjoy about my morning bus rides is the interaction with other passengers and, in particular, those students who are studying English in our community. The other day, a wet and windy morning, a group of us were discussing the current weather conditions when a young fellow, I'll call Akihiro (not his real name but just 'cause he's bright and always smiling and laughing), announced: "Now me real Canadian.

I believe in Easter
One evening a few of us gathered together to pray for various community needs. There was the usual list of human struggles represented in our requests: prayers for those afflicted with various sicknesses, calls for God's wisdom as a son faces financial decisions, help for a couple struggling to preserve their marriage, and a petition for comfort as yet another family faced the death of a beloved father and father-in-law. There was nothing out of the ordinary, as human suffering goes, except that pain is never ordinary to the one who's experiencing it. Read more...

Wait until
Until. Such a little word, yet so packed with meaning and insinuations. We use it all the time; so much, in fact, that I decided to look it up. Here's what I found: First, "until" is a preposition meaning "up to the point in time or the event mentioned", a word that basically introduces information to the reader. Next, "then", another little word that we use constantly, the other part of my musings. This four-letter adverb carries meanings such as "at the time in question or afterwards". For all you English majors, this is nothing new, but while reading Psalm 73 the other day, both that preposition and the adverb struck a chord of encouragement in my heart. Read more...
