A couple of months ago, Sophie was asked to record a short video about her experience of taking the big step of moving away & living on the other side of the world as a Missionary Kid (an “MK”)…Continue reading

…Today began with a bit of a bone-chilling, blood-curdling mystery, but it eventually got better.
Let me tell you about..Continue reading
How’s your coffee?
I haven’t started mine yet… in fact I’m still at hot chocolate but the day is yet young and coffee there shall be!
As I write, the room is still light by the dim glow of the Christmas Tree, largely in silhouette against the patio window-door, but its lights are a warmer white than the natural light filtering in from out of doors. I can’t help but wonder if this will be the last Saturday morning where I write with it’s quiet yet charming oversight. Hmmm….
Let me give you a quick overview of the week.Continue reading
The clock is ticking seemingly quicker than before and our time in Canada is drawing to a close. This time next week we’ll be in Montreal for services with the church in St-Laurent before taking to the skies on Sunday night. It’s hard to believe that things are winding down…
But I’m getting ahead of myself. Let me tell you a bit about where we are & what’s going on now.
… so it’s a particularly good reason to Pray for France!
So often we see the “Pray for ____ “ images in times of tragedy but that is not the case today. Today is a good day to pray for our adopted nation because in the same way that the French are celebrating their liberation from heavy-handed authorities (the monarchy & the church of the 18th century), so we have been working there for 3.5 years to see them liberated in a spiritual sense.
Today in particular… please pray for France and our work there.
Now… let me begin with an oversight…
All three kids have enjoyed spending time with their friends in the Saint John church over the past two weeks or so. It’s like they’ve just slipped right back into things like hand in glove – and that’s nothing short of the Lord’s hand in / on their lives. We’re thankful. Let me tell you why…
12 years and many hours of study later… we have a graduate. Wearing her blue cap & gown, Soph felt she “looked like a pillow”… but what a pretty, intelligent, Christian “pillow” she is. 🙂
A lot has happened over the past week, so I may split things up a bit and run it into next week’s post, but for now at least… the spotlight is on Soph!
Something happened that hasn’t happened – I think – in the history of this blog…
I forgot to post last week!
Things have been beyond crazy over the past two weeks and I’ll get to that, but let me start by saying that today is a very special day because as many of you are reading this, we’ll be sitting in an Pensacola Florida auditorium waiting for Sophie to march across the stage in blue regalia… ready to receive her high school diploma.
Next week I’ll fill you in on how the day went, but first let me get to the 2 weeks that were! Continue reading
This week we were given this beautiful bouquet of deep purple lilacs by our neighbours across the lane. They had no idea that:
a) this is my favourite shade of lilac,
b) lilacs are SUCH a reminder of home, or
c) that our spirits could’ve used the boost that comes with the smell of lilacs filling the room!
With our departure only 3 weeks away… we were a little bit in panic mode this week. But before I get to “panic” let me just talk “purple”…
If today’s feature image looks familiar, it’s because you saw it just a couple of weeks ago when I shared with you the “You can do it!” blooper reel. I pulled it out again today because I’m going to show you the full video Continue reading
