DERECHO

Back in July, a friend emailed me about a weather phenomenon called a “derecho”– a “bad weather event.” She wrote. “We had strong thunderstorms with especially bad winds that just built upon each other again and again.” She was in her car riding home. She drove over the mountain in the severe storm. “What an […]

THE EXTRA SHIRT

Here’s a story about God’s goodness, caring, blessing and providing for me. One morning, I put on my NEAT team t-shirt.( I’m a part of’  special group at work.) As I often do lately, I walked to the nearby Tim Horton’s café for my coffee and muffin.  Next thing I knew, I spilled coffee all […]

A SAD SITUATION

My heart is grieved this morning. I was standing, waiting for the bus at a stop near downtown where I work. A kind of shiver came over me.  I knew the feeling to be The Holy Spirit of warning me of something. I didn’t know what. All of the sudden I heard yelling. An argument […]
