CONTINUE…the ‘one word’ for 2017

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 […]

A Piece of the Puzzle

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 […]

Just the ordinary

Today is such an ordinary day of trying to clean and teach a kid about subjects and predicates and keep my hair in my head while her brother DOESN’T write his report on the Renaissance. Today is a day of sipping tea and talking and planning and wondering if he could please pick up a […]

God is Committed to the Middle

I’m participating in this beautiful curation project called Meet Me In the Middle. Where is God in the middle of things? ┬áThat question seems to pop up alot. Sometimes it seems like He isn’t around, that this thing we’re going through won’t ever be finished. The scriptures say that He is faithful to complete what […]

Enough

The question running through my heart today is this… Will I be enough? Tomorrow we are going to provide door-to-door valet service for our son from Winnipeg hospital to a Saskatoon hospital. We will be responsible for his care and ensuring that he gets his medications and that we don’t do any further damage to […]

Doing It Right on the Wrong Side of Town

We were on vacation recently. Road tripping through the beautiful Canadian west from Saskatoon to Victoria and beyond! We only had three kids with us so it felt kinda weird. Probably what ‘normal’ families feel like most of the time. We only needed one hotel room and people were far more willing to let us […]

Moving Forward in the Waiting

I picked a ‘flower’ today! That hasn’t happened in sooooooo long! By ‘flower’ I mean a little revelation that comes as I bop along life’s road. It feels a little like God sweeps back the veil for just a moment and you get a flash of understanding that is just for that moment. My old […]

Reclaiming Summer and Slowing Down

I am doing my best to savour summer. I will be the first to admit that summer is NOT my favourite season of the year. I am not into any of the following: heat humidity dust/dirt sticky, sweaty skin legs sticking to seats when I actually where shorts I am fond of: beautiful flowers leafy, […]

Gathered In…My Gift to Me

You don’t get to come back unchanged. When you have been around people who influence, love and lift up you can’t help but let it sink in and become a part of you. I watched a brave, beautiful soul gift us with a hospitality that was completely unlike mine. So gentle and easy and tasty. […]

The Best Medicine

Last night I happened upon a super funny post on Facebook. It hit my funny bone. HARD!!! I have not laughed that hard in YEARS people. It felt enormously good to just let all my bits jiggle as I giggled…and giggled…and snorted…and tears streamed down my face. “A merry heart does good like a medicine.” […]
