The Canadian Blog Awards!

As I came through the front door, laden with groceries, the phone was ringing.

On the other end was the warm, deep voice of my friend Dave Hingsburger, and he was telling me that the Best Religious Blog announcement had been made; Whatever He Says has won second place! That is second place in all of Canada. What an incredible honour.

To check the announcement out go to

Congratulations to Jordon Cooper, of, a pastor from Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, who won first place!

Thanks to Dave for nominating Whatever He Says and for starting this exciting adventure.

Thanks to my fellow writers, Susan Stewart, Ellen Fox and Angela Catrambone.

Thanks to all of our faithful readers; you are the reason we write!

Most of all I thank God for the joy of writing whatever he says.

Thank you Bene D and Lori Lei! I just read this verse in today's Daily Light:
"Those who are wise will shine like the brightness of the heavens, and those who lead many to righteousness, like the stars for ever and ever."

That is our heart, "to lead many to righteousness," by sharing our personal journeys of faith.

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!

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!
