Hey, remember me? Its been awhile! I've had computer issues with regards to my posting and I'm just not sure why. Hoping it'll work out. I have a new wee cousin who I haven't met yet but is really cute! (I've seen pics...) And I'm almost done my Christmas shopping. My goal is to be finished before Advent begins...I might not make it, but I'll be close. Today was Grey Cup, Saskatchewan won it...but Winnipeg gave them a good game. Alright, busy week ahead...cookie exchange, Beethoven and a surgery. (not mine) Focus is my priority. We went to the CN Tower on Saturday and spent the afternoon on Bremner street taking in the Grey Cup excitement...free food, live bands, koolaide and The Troops were there. We signed a banner headed for Afganistan and climbed in and out of several armed vehicles and planes. Moving experience to shake the hands of those who serve. It made me weepy at first and then very proud. It was really a great day!

Its raining and I need to express my worship on days like this...on my walk today I found so many great and wonderful leaves. And my walking buddy and I were talking about art galleries and it made me think, if we can stand in front of amazing art that people created, and love it and honor it as a creation, how do people function without looking at the infinite creation God made, and how much more beautiful that is. Really, consider a raindrop for a moment. What's in it? Chemicals, water, oxygen. Accident? Nope. God. Making rain. And its hard to pray for rain sometimes. Think of the bold leaders in Georgia right now...praying for actual rain. Bold leaders over there. But even praying that God could be glorified through the rain storms that come up in our life. Wow...I'm inspired. Fear is an area I'm trying to gain victory in. Praying that God could be glorified if my greatest fears came true is a prayer I've never made before. This Mercy Me song sounds like my new life song. I'm blessed by the language used here. God is so good to show me that even in my worst moments, he's right there with me...my next breath. Praise God with me today!
