Surrounded by songs
Years ago I found a post card that I posted above my computer and it’s perfect for what I’d like to share this week. Here goes: “A bird does not sing because it has an answer but because it has a song.” (Chinese proverb) Read more...

A matter of perspective
Last week I posted the following on my Facebook page:
“Do you remember when the thought of just staying home was so attractive? Having said that, it seems like years ago or that none of us had such a number of weeks and months in mind. Like you, I'm sure, some days are fine and others, well not so fine. I'm just thankful that I truly enjoy weeding. Oh yes, thankful that the drive-through at Tim Horton's remains open. Take care, stay safe and one of these days we'll just look back on it.” Read more...

Make me an encourager
Of all the times I’ve lived through, including both bad times and bad situations, I don’t think I ever remember hearing so many stories of neighbours helping neighbours or of strangers helping strangers. Although, admittedly, kindness doesn’t erase a virus called corona, but it sure makes its consequences easier to bear. Read more...

The power of in
The ability of a two-letter preposition to change one’s perspective is powerful. As I mused on what I, we and the world have faced over the past and probably coming months, a well-known verse of Scripture took on new meaning for me this week. It also reminded me of how we need to read God’s Word without prejudice or preconceived interpretation. Huh? What am I talking about? Let me explain. Read more...

Multiplied opportunities
It’s far from necessary to say that our world is a totally different place than it was mere weeks ago and I won’t bore you by reiterating the changes we all have and continue to face in the days to come. Most frustrating for me is the fact that everything has changed and yet nothing seems to change, except, now I face the effects of self-isolation, multiplied hand washes throughout the day and for us who are seniors, exhortations to allow others to do our shopping for us. These simple things have removed much of our sense of personal independence. Read more...

Wait and see
While living through this current pandemic, for me, and I’m sure for many of you, it’s the waiting and the not knowing that’s the hardest part. Read more...

Pay it forward
I know I’m not alone when it comes to having some down times, even down days, as this pandemic remains firmly in place. As much and as often as I tell myself that I am in the Lord’s hands, that I/we are well cared for, a sense of being trapped or lonely or both sweep over me like waves. I guess the latter comes from living on the edge of the Pacific Ocean. (That shows I still attempt to maintain a semblance of humor.) Read more...

Come on, ring those pots
“Come on, ring those bells…” Does anyone else remember these words to a Christmas song? I recall them often, but this week the bouncy melody has acquired new words. Here’s the opening line of my version: “Come on, bang those pots…”. Like it? So do I, as well as a number of folks in our neighbourhood block. Read more...
