Christmas Bulletin!

Confession is good for the soul.

After finishing last night's blog post, I stayed up until 3.00 a.m. decorating the house. Once I gave up the idea of doing it--I wanted to, and found the energy.

The thought of the children arriving on Saturday and seeing the old familiar "friends"--the much beloved and handled nativity set and the wonky old musical Christmas tree, and the wondrous fibre-optic angel that glows on the wall--well I thought of that and I had to do it.

The house is transformed into "Christmas." Nothing elaborate, but enough to welcome my dear team today.

Happy Friday. God bless you each and every one! :)

Belinda,

You are so dear to me and I am happy to be on your team...
What a wonderful time I had today in your warm house. Hearing from Paul about his trip and how God brought them through the weather safely home, enjoying the conversation and laughter with the group gathered. Thanks for that gift - a day to share together in your peaceful home, it feels like coming to a family celebration of Christ and each year we gather more memories to share. I am glad that get together was a glass ball , not a rubber one. Each of us are honored to share the time with you and your family.
Merry Christmas my friend,

Best of all we get to share in God's family.. Jesus the celebration of God's gift to us

Dear Lori Lei,
What a blessing today was. You're so right, we are family. I'm so glad you could make it. To have little Ava with us was a joy too.

God bless you on your vacation!

Just Joy!

Our family has a standing date for Sunday dinner on the first Sunday of every month. Not that we don't see each other at any other time, but we all know that particular Sunday is pretty much for sure--and I look forward to it so much--the front door bursting open and our house being filled once more with the voices and vibrancy of six grandchildren and their parents. 

This week Spero, Brenda's new Australian Shepherd puppy came too, and met his extended family, leaving Molson at home to have a rest! He was duly adored by all of us.


He came with a dazzling array of toys and is proving a fast learner, already sitting on command and responding to Tori's training. I was so impressed at her technique of quickly rewarding a turnaround from any slight naughtiness with praise for "good sitting," or "good" any other desirable behaviour! 

Tippy had her hair cut stunningly and bravely short the day before; making a statement about who she is as a unique individual, o…

The Secret Adventures of Susan's Scottish Scarf

By Belinda (with a lot of help from Susan :))
I was saying goodnight to her at the front door this week when she told me. There was apparently more to the scarf around her neck than I knew. 
The scarf had been a gift from me for Susan's birthday on Tuesday December 18th. It had been her 60th; and that day I had treated her to lunch to celebrate. 
We met at a tiny restaurant, Port Soiree, in Schomberg,near her office. It was a restaurant neither of us had been to before and it turned out to be a gem, with artsy ambiance, amazing food, wonderful service and modest pricing. In other words, it was perfect!
