Cinnamon came in the mail for me today. So did a chapstick. It’s a very particular type of cinnamon, Ceylon.  The chapstick isn’t so specific but I needed a new one and the price was right. I went with the sweet mint variety after perusing a selection of chapsticks [...]

Rainbows…

I taught a class this year at my son's homeschool co-op. One of the topics was rainbows and as we dug into how they were formed we discovered that rainbows aren't arches, they are instead full circles of magnificent colour in the sky.

It’s the little things…

The yellow pages arrived

My son’s therapist asked a valid question this morning.  She wondered if we even used the yellow pages that had arrived on our doorstep and kind of laughed at the idea of anyone using them at all.  I honestly can’t remember the last time I cracked open the yellow pages. [...]

Provide for me Lord an opportunity to serve and open my eyes to see it. Provide for me Lord an opportunity to love and open my heart that it may do so. Provide for me Lord an opportunity to believe and remove all doubt from my mind. May my life [...]

It all began with a mustard seed.

Yesterday I handed out mustard seeds at church. Have you seen a mustard seed? No? You’re obviously not a fan of grainy mustard. Mustard seeds are many things. They are delicious and spicy, small and fully of promise. The mustard seed is more than meets the eye. Obviously I preached [...]
