  t For lo, I am with you always. Matthew 28:20 My mum has fractured part of her lower spine. She will have surgery to repair and sort of strengthen what is left. She has osteoporosis.  My sister as some of you know is living with colon cancer that has spread to lower part of her spine, her sacrum.  One morning last week I went on a walk through the very oldest part of the town I live in and stumbled upon a little garden behind the Old North Church. Somehow in all the years I’ve lived here I had never seen it before. It was very small as it was tucked in behind the old stone church and a rock cliff but it was beautiful, peaceful and calm and a quiet restful spot.  I happened to glance at a plaque on the face of the rock which stated, “For lo, I am with you always.” What a comforting thought.  I love when Jesus does this...winds me through old and narrow and twisty ways until I almost give up on finding any kind of a point and then suddenly there I am in exactly the right spot at exactl

  I’ve been in hospital with a kidney infection for the past three days but I’m home again enjoying a cup of coffee made exactly the way I like it, in my favourite mug, listening to Johnny Cash sing “You are my Sunshine my only sunshine,” and watching the morning sun lighting through my kitchen window just the way it always does.  It’s so nice to be home. ~ ~ ~

  t Thou crownest the year with thy goodness; and thy paths drop fatness. They drop upon the pastures of the wilderness; and the little hills rejoice on every side. The pastures are clothed with flocks; the valleys also are covered over with corn; They shout for joy, they also sing.

Hopie’s house

  My grandchildren stayed over at my house last weekend! On Sunday morning we walked to Crocker park to watch the sailboat races. It was rainy so we wore our raincoats. On Saturday afternoon we walked around the corner to Screaming lady’s cove and threw rocks into the tide pools. Big rocks make big splashes! Saturday was bright and sunny so we walked around the corner to Screaming Lady’s cove And threw rocks in the water. The biggest rocks make the biggest splashes! My brother and sister-in-law came over and she always brings a bag of goodies for the children. She is a pre-school teacher and Verne and Abby love her! Abbie is painting with watercolour and having a wonderful time! We also went out to lunch with my mum (Reetsie) Verne ordered a hotdog which he said he didn’t really want and then proceeded to eat the entire thing And a bag of chips! My favourite part was when we walked to the harbour and Verne said, “I’m happy! I always have fun when I’m with you, Hopie!” Just about melted

Sunday morning sailboat races. It was rainy and cold when we woke but that didn’t stop us from donning our raincoats and walking to Crocker park for the best viewing of the sailboat races! We noticed that other folks were heading in that direction also. We saw big dogs and little dogs being walked up the hill and over the grass to the edge of the harbor to see which boat would come in first.  Three each of red, yellow, blue, and green sails. 3+3+3+3=12 boats dancing across the harbour in the rain And 2 children watching from the shore. When things got too wet we ducked past the daffodils and into the gazebo to stay dry.
