Friends, it is a late night and an early morning awaits! So, I'm digging out an old journal and sharing a poem I wrote in 1982. It isn't a very good poem, but God can use even a very bad poem! Maybe. :)

Christ never did the obvious,
The natural thing to do.
He did things so amazing--
And startling, and new!

If you would tread his footsteps,
Then wear his shoes of peace,
Seek out his Word and love it,
Begin and never cease,

To hear what he is saying,
To those who love his law,
Seek his way, not the world's way,
For different they both are.

Down here we have no city,
We seek one that's to come.
We're citizens of Glory,
And one day we'll reach Home.

'Til then we'll walk with Jesus,
And love him more each day,
And let our lights keep shining,
As we live the "Jesus Way."

These are lyrics waiting for someone to write the accompanying music.

Oh, Marilyn, thank you. Funny, but I brought home a Judds CD from the library. I don't listen to a lot of country music but I do enjoy their singing. I just finished listening to their last song on the CD, "Guardian Angel." The tune would fit well if I added a chorus. I never thought of it being a song. Perhaps God will inspire the tune in me or someone else. Thank you for the great suggestion.

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!
