I needed to shampoo my hair, but the shampoo would not cooperate. I had shaken the container once, twice and more times – each shake progressively more vigorous than before; but the shampoo remained unmoved inside! I wanted to give it freedom; admittedly a freedom to benefit me. It reminded me of times when I […]

Storm Clouds

Today, the day began with a storm; actually a thunder and lightning storm!  In March!  In Ontario! The weather this winter has been very different to what we normally receive.  There have been few snow storms – I can count them on one hand – and so a thunderstorm this morning really came as no surprise.

A Dream Come True

Psalm 62:8 Trust in Him at all times, you people; pour out your heart before Him; God is a refuge for us.  (NKJV) A very dear friend of mine married recently.  She had suffered the gauntlet of loneliness and uncertainty, but during that time had totally relied on God’s Grace and trusted in His Will […]

Whine, Whine, Whine!

How long will it take our children to believe we will do good things for them…better than they can imagine?
