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

As our bodies grow old and change I believe our spirits evolve into something bigger. My husband’s grandfather was an influential man. His soul was much bigger than his body. He took up space in a room and had so much spiritual weight. No one could have known him for any amount of time without feeling the affect of his influence. With his recent passing, heavens gain has gripped us painfully. My… Read More

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

Grief is alive. It’s a living creature that hides, and unexpected triggers reveal it. As I write this, I am sitting below a large painting of two horses. It’s one of my very own unexpected triggers. Like the tears that come when they want to old memory’s emerge without warning. A memory of my sister riding a shiny palomino flashes through my mind. Heaven gave me the gift of two sisters. They… Read More

Some days I feel overwhelmed with the varying thoughts of humanity regarding God. They seem to speak of all that is required of us rather than directing our thoughts towards all that God has done. These thoughts lead to a place where I feel like I am desperately failing. These thoughts weigh me down. On one particular day I had felt heavy due to a darkly religious Facebook post someone wrote.

This is for you sweet friend. You know who you are, a song bird from heaven that can never be caged. There was always this liberating sound within you, and long ago it started to make an entrance into this world. Now it pours out of you like great water rushing through holes in a broken dam. It is an endless stream from an endless sea. Psalms 23: 1 says The Lord… Read More

What makes a person so able to destroy another life? I am going to tell you the answer. It’s not evil, although it is evil to do so. It’s not demons or anger or jealousy. The main cause is the thinking or thoughts of a person. The Germans thinking that the Jews were not people were able to act in horrible ways. Imagine being the mother holding your baby, both naked in… Read More

If I were a dandelion the world would see me as a weed. Until someone came along and took a closer look. Then they would see, I am vibrant in colour, prolific in nature, and nutritiously life giving. The majority does not determine the truth . You cannot just exterminate me, because to you, I am not growing where I am supposed to grow. Powerful…. Like a dandelion, you must pull me… Read More

October, 2015 When my eyes opened I had a strong sense that the day wouldn’t go as planned. My aunt and I had plans to visit Nokomis Beach, and maybe do some shopping. My feet were jolted awake by the cold tiled floor as I wandered out into her living room. My Aunt was bustling around in the kitchen to my right. “Good Morning” she said with her toothy smile. Her fingers… Read More
