When I received the summons in the mail it seemed to be an incredibly short time away from the original date on the statement. Feeling a mild inner panic I reviewed in my mind how I simply didn’t take that short walk to the mailbox, or how the post didn’t deliver it to me on time. Regardless of the journey this very powerful little document took, I found it in my hand… Read More

One night I had this vivid dream. I was in another realm. There were people there that I loved such as my husband. There were no children. The atmosphere was messy. There were large cliffs of dirt and hills of brown sand. Large giants hid themselves under the ground. I knew I had to protect myself. I believe I felt strengthened by my resolve to live. I watched others being taken down… Read More

Someone once asked her the question where Jesus was in her darkest moment. As her mind pondered the answer she sat back and allowed an old memory to grab hold of her. Suddenly she was there, standing. The hallway with pale coloured walls stretched out in front of her. The solitary door on her left offered temporary escape. She grabbed the handle and went inside. Kneeling down on the white bathroom floor… Read More

A power presses against you holding you up. Despite yourself you start to fly. It is the wind little bird. Do you feel it? Can you believe and choose not to be afraid? It is who you are little bird, and how you were meant to be. You are meant to soar above the chaos. Look down, around and discover. Little bird, do you see the limits of the sky? See the… Read More

One day at work I sat in a coworkers office. I was distracted by the bare walls and lack of art work. There were no pictures, and even worse no windows. Feeling stifled I decided to draw them a picture. I just didn’t know what to draw. So, I shyly asked what their favourite flower was. They told me it was a peony and that their favourite colour was pink. I took… Read More

You

You…my little laugh,  my Happy, and sometimes my sad. My run into my arms reminder that Im a safe place.  You’re the “go away Mommy!” You need your space.  The little mirror that shows me my ways.  A copy cat who repeats every phrase. My eventual forgiveness. A special kind of grace. You see me as beautiful. I can see it in your face. In you, is your father. In you, is me. It’s… Read More

April 11, 2018  A life with children is magical. It can make even the most ordinary thing, like a leaf, a grand discovery. The wind in the trees, the movement of light on water, the reflection in a glass, and so much more becomes a “WOW” of wonder in my mind, but it really starts with them. They bring it out of me. They change my mind about the day that I… Read More

It is not a burden, but rather a special gift available to you if you are willing to receive it. It is made possible by Jesus. Jesus made the way spiritually for us to go straight to God.

March14, 2021- Family Trip to Jasper, Alberta My feet rested on the ice covered ground. With blue sky and mountains surrounding me I drank in deeply the clean fresh air. My face was uncovered and it felt good to breathe. My son was sitting with me on the log bench. The plaque on it continually paying tribute to a 24 year old male who had lost his life falling into the canyon… Read More

July 4th, 2020 I was standing at the kitchen sink when my 2 year old daughter approached me. Her outstretched hand was facing palm up. I think it was her right hand. She appeared to be handing me something. I made an exclamatory response and said “for me!” She responded that yes it was for me. I played along. I reached out with both my hands and grasped the invisible thing. “Thank… Read More
