The Highlight of the Month

The highlight of the month (so far) has been the whirlwind visit of our youngest daughter en route back home to Powell River after almost two adventurous years in the boonies of small-highway-town-Alaska!   Two years ago we sold our Powell River home out from under her and as we moved east eventually landing in Alberta, she flew North to the wilds of Alaska to be near her grandma.  Well she’s moving back home to Powell River now to live near her sisters.  And once again she’s trusting the Lord to open doors for housing and employment as He did so incredibly these past two years as she got to work at her dream desk job at the Crossroad Medical Clinic.

So this post is dedicated to Rachel and her effervescent confidence in God, and posted with a prayer for her guidance and success!

The rising steam from Banff’s natural hot springs creating hoarfrost.



The discovery of hot springs here would be the grounds for establishing Banff Nat’l Park in 1885




Rachel’s travelling companion…
She arrived in time for bracing cold but we still enjoyed a tromp around our neighborhood…




And now she’s arrived safely ‘home’ to Powell River out of reach of hugs but not prayers.


Lord, you have been our dwelling place in all generations.
Before the mountains were brought forth,
or ever you had formed the earth and the world,
from everlasting to everlasting you are God.
Let your work be shown to your servants,
and your glorious power to their children.
Let the favor of the Lord our God be upon us,
and establish the work of our hands…
