Do you hear what I hear? (week 2)

I found myself in a Starbucks on Friday night…working…waiting (for my kids)…wanting to hear some of Lauren Daigle’s new Xmas album (she’s good). One problem, I didn’t have ear buds with me. Instead, I had to listen through my iphone's small speaker. Not good quality...

Overflowing with Thankfulness?

Can we say ‘thank you’ for days on a calendar? By that I mean, holi-days on the calendar? They seem to get us back to centre. They remind us of what’s important. They force us to rest? Holidays have a purpose…to re-centre us… Labour Day (grateful for the job you have)...
