Counting Blessings


watching Ethan play soccer in the league finals

picking Annie and Eliza up at Jones

a quiet Saturday afternoon with everyone home

watching the first four episodes of New Amsterdam with Eliza

Quote | Right Now


Right now in Christ, you have
unlimited resources
unceasing strength
unequaled peace
unfailing help
to face anything unafraid.

Counting Blessings


When the Avastin treatment was offered to Jim, he was told that each case is different and there are no guarantees. It may do nothing, may stop it from getting worse, may improve his vision slightly or even significantly. It is not covered by insurance, which adds to our challenges, but we felt we needed to try it.

Jim went for the third injection last week, and the tests showed that his eye is now 20/50. While he does not notice the change in his vision, it was encouraging to hear.

Thank You, God.

Last weekend, Ethan was on the west coast.

   He was playing soccer in British Columbia with his provincial team.

This weekend, Ethan is on the east coast.

   He is playing soccer on Prince Edward Island with his high school team.

Thank You, God.

Slice of Life | A Fit


I have a little one who is learning how to share the swing.

When we were outside, I noticed her happily watching someone else swing back and forth.

I said,

   V, you are being so kind and flexible.

She came over, hugged me, and in her sweet voice said,

   I know, Mrs.D. I'm not even having a fit!

I'm still giggling!
