In the old country Ascension Day was always celebrated. Here, not at all and not even mention made of it in many churches. What a day of rejoicing that must have been for our Lord that He could finally be reunited with His Father! Just think of it!! And how long until Pentecost? Are we there yet? Just a few more days!
Our son Ken and his dear family moved here at the end of November. So grateful that after 6 months of uncertainty, no job for either one of them, the Lord provided. His dissertation studies on hold, Ken was offered a job with Mustard Seed of Edmonton as Executive Assistant. He worked during our national elections, which gave him connections so that he is also working in his spare time with the census for Stats Canada. He has also been offered a position, starting September, to teach 2 subjects at Grant McEwan College. The time of trial has been very difficult and challenging, but there is renewed hope and joy that he’ll be able to provide for his family. Praising the Lord for His provision!
Meanwhile, Melissa has been busy submitting all kinds of forms, applications and papers to access specialized help for Aidan, who is autistic. So thankful that all her hard work is paying off and programs for Aidan have begun or are underway.
Grateful that their older two are doing great in school! Not easy to adjust to a cross -country move and change schools in the middle of the year! Praising the Lord that they are bringing home achievement certificates that mom and dad can put on the fridge!!
Thankful for the beautiful flowers, blossoming trees and delicate green foliage that is a sight to behold every morning. We haven’t had it too warm yet, but I’m very content with the weather we’ve been having. Not a sun worshipper here – I burn too quickly!
Rejoicing when I hear birdsong – especially the robin’s song waking me in the morning and then signing off for the evening.
Grateful that after a week of suffering with viral bronchitis and sinusitis, I am making good progress! Pray that the Lord would return me to full strength. Praising the Lord that He is the Healer! Spent the night in the emergency room with some issues that will require follow-up with the doctor. Thankful for our oldest, an ER nurse, who picked me up and brought me home.
One of the receptionists where I work, is going in for knee surgery and I’ve agreed to take some of her shifts for the next 4-6 months just to help out. Having been sick last week it means that I’ll start later. I’m trusting that the Lord will provide the good health that I’ll need for this extra workload. I hope to be around to read your blogs, but will most likely not be doing many posts myself.
HAVE A BLESSED WEEK!
