Path to Rainbow  Valley Ski Hill, Edmonton

Serve God with your whole heart, in joy and contentment.

Be strong and courageous. Be not afraid.

You’re never alone in your journey of life.

God will not fail you! Be not dismayed.

Do not look back! Keep your eye on the goal!

Only what’s done for Christ will last!

Don’t rest on your laurels or deny your mistakes!

The future looks brighter than any day past.

Hi Karin, I've been catching up on your gorgeous posts... Glad your PA kids got 'home' --and are settled in (sorta). I know you will enjoy having them close-by. Also--glad your daughter got home... Sounds like a wonderful Christmas for you all.

Happy New Year, My Friend.
