Jesus, Friend of Sinners--Including Me!

By Belinda

Susan recommended this song to our worship team as one to learn. I listened and loved it. I also was struck by the words, especially about the fact that we are so prone to look at others rather than ourselves--and judge. God forgive us for the judgement we have directed towards others, when each of us is so in need of the grace of God for how far we fall short of God's standard daily.

I think so too, Anon. I'm so glad Susan shared it. It was meant to be I think.

Y.S. shared it with me when we were discussing your post of a few days back:
Y.S. said, "you need to hear that new song by Casting Crowns,Mom," and then he played it for me while I blinked back tears of pain for having been misunderstood and judged and tears of repentance for having misunderstood and judged...

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!
