A time of joy

My blog has had a number of focuses over the years.  There are times as you read back that you will see I’m very reflective and my devotional thoughts tell where I’m journeying.  There are times when I’m quite quiet – times when it seems better not to write than to say what I’m really thinking or feeling.  There are times when it seems I am posting things that I find elsewhere on the iternet – usually You Tube and I don’t have much else to say.  Well let me insert that these days I’m rejoicing for many reasons.

I’m really enjoying this appointment – it seems made for me at times and I love to delve into the details and systems that are part of what THQ does in the oversight of The Army in Canada and Bermuda.  I’m enjoying seeing Wendy working so hard beside me – I really do love our working together.  We make a good team.

I would add I’m rejoicing for Phil and Amanda who have just moved back to Canmore and are settling in with Carlyle.  They are doing so very well and we’re thrilled for them.

A recent outing downtown

I’m rejoicing for the announcement that Jason received a sizable scholarship at MUN.  They have been living on a shoe string and this will give them some breathing room – AND it’s a reflection of the hard work that Jason has been putting in!  Yes he and Susan still have a way to go in their current journey but this has been a good news week for them!

I’m rejoicing that Wendy and I have our health and strength!  Don’t we take that for granted?  Yet each day I thank the Lord for this great gift.

Finally – I’m thankful for the opportunity to be in ministry.  I might have done many other things in life but ministry for all the difficulties has proven to be a wonderful journey of faith.
