. . .

Christopher has his Tea-break with Gran.




One of the very nice things about being back home in Waterdown – daily visits from the grandchildren (the younger ones anyway). Lots of hugs!


In My back Yard!

I think I am struggling to figure myself out.



Contemplation or daydreaming?

But not too intensely, because we have been very busy moving back into our home – cleaning, painting moving furniture, repairs, etc.

I would like to have more time to sit here & look out the window.

‘Are we all wanderers in the same forest trying to find a fresh trail to truth?’



Lost in the forest?


“Is it possible that truth is more than an idea and that it is found in God?”

(Soul Cravings by Erwin McManus)

I have been reading in the gospel of John lately. Pilate asks “What is truth?” This was in response to Jesus’ statement – ” . . . I came into the world to testify to the truth. Everyone on the side of truth listens to me.”

If one is truly searching for truth, then the search should eventually lead  to God through Jesus.

Thanksgiving (Canada)!

“A wife of noble character is her husbands crown . . . “ (Prov. 12:4)

I am so thankful for so many things – especially my precious wife, Sylvia.

God has blessed me so richly with a wife that is exactly perfect for me in every way.

And, Sylvia really loves me!

She must – putting up with me for 44+ years, and supporting me in all of my plans & adventures.

Thanks Lord, for everything!!!!

We are now back ‘home’ in Waterdown, ON. My plan is to write on a more regular basis.

A Touch from GOD.

He loves ME!



NOT Hawaii


While listening to Hawaiian music (the beautiful voice of  Israel Kamakawiwo’ole) and reading (the boy who fell to earth), I was touched by God. I felt His wonderful love for me. It’s hard to describe the experience – warmth, peace quiet, contentment, etc. (You had to be there – I am glad I was.)

“To lose ambition is to become complacent.

To lose passion is to to become apathetic.

If this is our only option, how pathetic!”

(Soul Cravings)


Leading & Following

Leading & Following


Destiny, vision, ambition, passion – I struggle with these ‘issues’.


Is it because I am not sure that my ‘dreams’ are big enough?

Maybe I am afraid I am or might become ‘complacent, apathetic, pathetic’.

I am not sure how destiny, vision, ambition, passion fit into my life.

Makes one think!

John 10:10 – “abundant life” – is my hope!

“God and Basketball”

Yes, this is really the title of Entry #16 on INTIMACY in the book I am reading/re-reading. [Soul Cravings]

Oddly enough lots of stuff in this ‘section’ resonates me.

“. . . we are all hypocrites in transition. I am not who I want to be, but I am on the journey there, and thankfully I am not who I used to be.”

“Love is ever expanding. Love always grows, not just deeper, but wider. Love always loves people more and always loves more people. Love calls us into community . . .” [Oops! I used the ‘C’ word.]
