A taste of FAITH, a touch of LAUGHTER.

Alone Again

Just said goodbye to my son, Ken, and his daughter, Jayden, after 2 weeks of having them home with me. Sitting here alone. It feels strange.

I’m not sure where they are headed exactly tonight, but I’m asking for safe travels for them because there has been snow. My son has a great, new, 4 wheel drive vehicle, and good experience driving, but the road is never an entirely safe place. I’m always a bit worried when they set off from BC, through the mountains, headed towards Manitoba.

It will be good to hear of their progress as they go and of their safe arrival. They left Manitoba one night and arrived here on Vancouver Island the next night, in the wee hours. That’s one long, non-stop trip! It’s usually a slower trip home, though, with stops.

Well, It was a family shaped Christmas, a good time to make memories.

Thank You for the blessing, Lord!

Feeling the silence.

        I hope you have a fantastic 2015! That more contentment finds you and that the opposite stays as far away from your home as possible 🙂

    Hi Ann, as an empty nester myself, I certainly understand your loneliness. Fortunately, I have work to keep me busy and my son and daughter-in-law live nearby. I pray that the Lord fills every gap in your life and gives you boundless joy in Him. In Christ, David Ettinger

      I retired from teaching and ministry due to health problems in 2011, and just did not return to live in my isolated community after recovery. I try to keep myself busy and active though, in exercise and outreach ministry here in my new community.

      One of my two boys popped in on me last night. I may see him again today. My other son and granddaughter live a province away. I will see them around Christmas, which is coming soon!
      Thanks for the prayer!
