Our Sincere Thanks…and an Announcement!

To all of our dear subscribers and followers of QRI Musings,

Thank you for your support of our blog, QRI Musings. We are still at a loss for words that our readership spans over 90 countries. We give God all the glory!

It is with delight that we inform you that we are moving forward with a brand new initiative. With the birth of our second son, Josiah Ezekiel Judah, we had considered renaming our blog for some time, but the Lord had something much greater in mind.

We are thrilled to announce the launch of our new website: Dew2Flourish.com! This is the new name and location of our blog. (Please bear with us as we make some tweaks here and there during this transition.)


Over the next little while, we will be sharing more about the vision of this new initiative and we will be revealing some exciting features. It is our hope that you will want to remain connected with us through your subscription.

We will be migrating our current subscribers to our new website within the next two weeks.

Unfortunately, there is no way to migrate our wordpress.com followers. We kindly request that you visit our new website and consider subscribing.

Thank you again for being a faithful friend of ours and for all your prayers. We look forward to the greater things that God has in store in this new season ahead.

A Blessed and Prosperous 2015 to you and yours!

Note: We have just published our inaugural post on Dew2Flourish.com titled “A New Year: Start Strong, Finish Strong.” Please have a read. We hope it will be a blessing to you!

With lots of love,

Quinton, Rathiha, Ishmerai and Josiah (QRIJ)

The Significance of Motherly Covering

The following post is my loving message to every woman.

May The Lord enlighten the eyes of your heart
to see your role in a new light.

(Please share this with every woman in your life.
Men are also most welcome to read and learn from this!)

In the early morning hours of Dec. 31, 2012, I had a dream that I was conversing with a beautiful angel.

Quinton, Ish and I were seated together with the angel around a café table. The angel leaned over to me and said, in a gentle, yet concerned tone:

“Who puts cream on Ish?”

In the Zone

Carefully positioning a nail at the edge of a precisely trimmed plank, he steadily tapped away.

The thud of each hammer strike echoed throughout the town.

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.

It clearly was not.

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!

And how delightful it has been to explore the rolling hills of Addington Highlands, also known as Nature’s Heartland. The scene was ablaze with colour this Fall! (Me thinkst Q wore out the brake pads on our vehicle from pulling over so many times so we can scurry about with our camera.)

Here are a few images from our excursion where we experienced steep climbs and drops, and everything from blazing sunshine and blue skies to mist and showers.

A lovely Thanksgiving Weekend indeed! Thank You God for showing us Your glorious splendour through each season in our beautiful Canada!

Living Life on Leftovers

Thanksgiving Weekend 2012 in Canada is now behind us. It is likely that a touch of delectable goodness from every Thanksgiving feast will find its way into sandwiches, salads and soups for some time ahead.

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.

A population boom among the Hebrew slaves drove a remorseless ruler, Pharaoh, to decree that all newborn boys were to be thrown into the river. To have a male child was utterly unacceptable and fraught with risk; to say the least.
