Morning Glories

Morning glories are God’s way of smiling at us. Their perfect wide faces shine brightly. They are my favorite flower and in the summer time I love to sit at my table on my deck early in the morning. They greet me with lots of blooms as I work on my writing or devotions, and…

Look Closer

Roxanne stopped outside the door and turned. “I can’t do this.” “Yes, you can,” Valerie said. “Come on.” She grabbed Roxanne’s arm and pulled her inside. The dimly lit room bustled with activity. Children giggled in one corner as a group of climbers were outfitted in another, but it was the wall that caught Roxanne’s…

Happy Canada Day!

Yesterday was a special day here in Canada. On July 1, 1867 it was officially named Dominion Day—a holiday commemorating the formation of Canada. On October 27, 1982 Parliament changed it to Canada Day. I’m taking a small break this long weekend, but will be back in a week! I’ll leave you with special love painted…

Growing

It’s that time of year again. Time to plant our veggie and flower gardens. Last year when I was planting, I had some thoughts come to mind and I put them in a blog post that first appeared on the Christian Life in London publication. I would like to feature it here too. Happy planting!…

What’s not to love? I’m on vacation right now and enjoying fall (and ACFW!). I’ll post a blog next week. Enjoy your week! Darlene What’s…

My One Word for 2017

Happy New Year! Can you believe 2016 is finished? I have to say, it’s one year I’ll be happy to say goodbye to. It started off with heartache for me in the loss of my precious brother, but I’m keeping memories of him alive and praising God that Murray is no longer suffering. He’s whole…

Proud to be Canadian

This past weekend we celebrated Canada Day. No matter how we celebrate, it’s always a fun time and signifies a start to summer vacations. However, shouldn’t it be more? It’s not just about partying and fireworks. Don’t get me wrong, there’s nothing wrong with that. It’s fun, but it also should be about celebrating our…
