another week of ease and challenges

We have a good life. Sure we have our issues and challenges that wear us out and down, but we have been able to host visiting family members, share time with friends and family and not once did we encounter any danger. Our marrige is healthy. Our income is secure. Our kids and grandson are healthy. We have a great church. A MARVELOUS GOD!

And it's spring in Saskatchewan!

The Winter Season for the Soul

Interesting presentation at church tonight..........
We don't often talk about sorrow and pain at Lakeview. The worship singing and messages met Colleen and I right where we have been living the last several months.

Thomas Miller opened talking about the winter he has been going through the last 11 months. Don Pogoda talked about silence and quiet and listening. Carmen Schock walked us though Job and tying it into her personal life. As we move forward through the uncertainty of our relationship with Jay and Julie God will continue to support and strengthen us.

A nice family evening

Tony, Arlin and Brennen came down to visit Parker and Shawna so we had them over for dinner Sunday evening. They had a full day going to PA to visit Grandma.

Brennen is such a HAPPY little boy.

And Parker and Shawna are the perfect Auntie and Uncle!

We didn't hear from Jay and Julie. We missed them. Please pray that we will remain patient and God will place the people in their lives and ours to help rebuild our connection.
