This weekend we were able to go to Canada to celebrate a friend getting married.Â I got to know John and his family when Allan and I lived in Swaziland. Then we all got to know the “grown up” John when he stayed with Allan’s parents during school holidays.
It was a nice surprise to see some of the other missionaries we knew in Swaziland too.
Congratulations John and Alysse!
I enjoy taking pictures and I have been learning a lot!Â It is also fun to play with the pictures and come up with something completely unique.
The moon was brighter and the sky clearer than last night, and I had fun experimenting with more moon pictures.
God createdÂ nature for me to admire, but I often am too busy to go out and enjoy his beauty.Â I am glad that I had time tonight to find something new!
This was the view out of our front window this morning.Â Watching the clouds move by and the changing colors created a very distracted Momma.
“Have you ever noticed a tree standing naked against the sky,
How beautiful it is?
All its branches are outlined, and in its nakedness
There is a poem, there is a song…
By Jiddu Krishnamurti (1895 â€“ 1986)
Last night was a beautiful winter evening. It was chilly, but not cold. The sky was clear and the moon appeared full.Â What a great night to be out!
Today was a beautiful day for riding bikes!
It has been a different fall.Â The days are warmer and we have had less cold rainy days than normal.Â Today we woke up to a thick fog.Â It was a pain to drive in, but it was beautiful!
Audrey came out with me to see if she could get “swallowed up”. She said it felt cold. She liked it though.
Then Adrian come out.Â He wanted to learn what fog was.Â Allan was leaving for work, so he came out to play a few minutes with Adrian.Â They both enjoyed the fog too.
I am so thankful for giggles.Â It is such a happy sound and so contagious!
A joyful heart is good medicine…
My sister Lauri is recuperating from a bad fall!Â She had the flu andÂ fell when she got dehydrated.Â She is better and getting lots of needed sleep.Â I am very thankful that she was not hurt worse in the fall and that she is able to get the rest she needs to heal.
(Dad just gave me a few fun slides of when we were little, and I thought this one of Lauri very cute!)
I am very thankful for my mom. She is a wonderful Momma!
Since she refuses to celebrate her birthday anymore, please be sure to wish her a happy unbirthday today.
Thank you God for Mom!
Happy Birthday Mom, I love you very much 😉
