The Door

My husband and I recently visited Williamstown, Kentucky, USA, to see the Ark Encounter. Upon arriving, far in the distance on a hill, we could see a full-size replica of the ark that God told Noah to build, and we were taken there by bus. It is 510 feet long, 85 feet wide, and 51 feet high! Inside the ark, we did a self-guided tour, but there were lots of staff around to guide us and answer questions. The experience doesn't end inside, as outside there are gardens, a small zoo, and restaurants, as well as a virtual simulator. It was amazing and well worth the long drive to see it!

Shattered Heart

Matthew 5:4 – Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted. (NIV)

I watched as if it were rolling in slow motion — or it could have been me moving in slow motion. I stretched my hand forward as it rolled to the floor — shattering. My heart skipped a beat. My favourite coffee mug lay in pieces on the floor.

Then, I realized that it was my heart that was shattered and not just the coffee cup that I didn't know how to pick up. I was so raw with emotion, since my mum had passed away just days before, that I just stared at the broken pieces on the floor.

Book Review Catbird Singing

Catbird Singing

The book brings back wonderful childhood memories of growing up on a farm, even though it wasn’t an Amish farm the farm life is very similar to all.  I have always had a draw to the Amish life when we go to Lancaster and this book made me feel a part of the story.

Seeing Is Believing... Or Is It?

The area where I work is dotted with large lots and homes. There aren't many fences, but there are a lot of dogs that all remain on their property as we walk by. Recently, I was on a walk with a lady that I support, and three dogs were running around their yard. She turned to me and said, "We should go back. The dogs are coming." I explained that they don't leave their yard because they wear a special receiver collar, and the perimeter of the yard has an invisible fence — an underground transmitting wire.

The Storm


Mark 4:17 – But since they have no root, they last only a short time. When trouble or persecution comes because of the word, they quickly fall away. (NIV)
