Found Treasure by Susan

Friends, Susan was treasure hunting yesterday and this is one of the golden nuggets she found!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Ethel Waters is a big part of what drew me to Jesus as a young messed up teenager on a one-way road to self destruction. I fell in love with her the first time I saw her and I used to tune into those televised Billy Graham crusades just to get a glimpse of her. When I read her autobiography a few years later (which is sitting on your bookshelf, B'a), that cemented our relationship forever. She'll be one of the dear faces I'll be looking for in heaven. I can't wait to say, "Thank you". She'll be lookin' for me!

I'm pulling that book off my bookshelf and reading it! Thank you for reminding me! :)So many good books, and now I can stay awake to read them. :)

Wow....Haven't heard her in years!...but love her to bits because she just radiates the love of Jesus. You know this is my all time favourite song, don't you? B' posted it one night in July of 2008....sung by Lauren Hill. It struck a chord in me then and lifted me out of deep waters. A few months later I found a painting of six sparrows perched on the branches of a tree with the words of the title of this song written on it.....a gift from God. It hangs in our spare room. I cherish it and think of you and that day in July...that black day in July....when the Spirit of God prompted you to post this song on your blog.

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!
