It was a dark and stormy night up in the mountains. The new year was almost upon me and I still hadn’t found my ‘one word’ for the year. There had been a few auditions but nothing was really cutting it. The next day I decided I’d start working on my new planner while the […]
It was a three-puzzle Christmas. One didn’t get completed. We’ll have to break it out when we get home. Puzzles have been a theme in my world since the middle of November. It started at the Belong Summit. Puzzle pieces were the theme of the decorations, reminding the participants that we each have a part […]
The cat and the bag. The worms and the can. They aren’t supposed to get out but I seem to have a way of poking the cans and the bags and then there is stuff to deal with. These cats and worms actually need to get out!! Not so long ago I was talking to […]
A lot has taken place in the last ten days or so. I feel like I’ve been in a whirlwind. The world has shifted for me in some not so little ways… I attended a conference, a retreat, several meetings and work. I have slept in 4 different beds. I travelled out of the province, north of […]

For the glory of His splendour. – my journal, spring, 1999 My last week was filled with wonderful women. I went to volunteer at an emerging organization, […]
I wrote this post a long time ago, back in my Fresh Flowers days where it seems I had a lot more that I was willing to say in the blog-o-sphere than I am now. It popped up as a ‘memory’ in my Facebook feed and as I read it I was reminded me of […]
Life moves at such a pace doesn’t it? Sometimes my husband and I will crash on the couch at the end of a crazy day and joke about “livin’ the dream!” And we are! This was/is our dream! Lots of kids, full on living with ministry, farm, family and all the things that go with […]
I’m on the road. Posting from my phone. Participating in the Five Minute Friday community today because… It is time. It is time to get back on the horse. Today’s prompt is team and I am on the road with my best girls and we have been a team this week. We climbed the side […]
