From Desperation to Miracle

The sounds of the fast-approaching crowd grew louder. They told me that He will be coming my way.

Here He comes.

Here’s my chance.

A Boxing Day message to my stalker

There are some entries that I write for my eyes only, but I pray that releasing this post will bring about a learning opportunity for those that need it.

So…(*deep breath)…here goes.

Not too long ago, I had a strange feeling that there was someone lurking in my shadow. At first, I thought it was sheer paranoia on my part.

QRI Scenic Route: Addington Highlands, Ontario

We are enjoying the sights and scenes near our home. Over the past year, we have discovered so many hidden trails and wonders!

A Mother’s Radical, Resolute Release

It was a dark, troubling time for a conquered nation that suffered the cruelty of slavery, oppression and mercilessness in a foreign land.

This is Not Where We Belong

This weekend, we went to pay our respects to a 40-year-old gentleman; our friend’s uncle.

He had gone home for lunch and a quick siesta, as was his routine before heading back to work.

Sadly, he never woke up from his nap.
