Beloved Buns

I posted a picture of buns that I made this evening and this was the fabulous reply from our very own Suspicious Minds:

I saw a pillar of light in my oven, above the brightness of the sun, which descended gradually until it fell upon me.

It no sooner appeared than I found…

What my loving dad and mom gave me for Christmas...

Here is the letter he included with the framed gift:

Dear Family,

Over the past few months, I have had some time for serious reflection. While a great deal of

it focused on what God wants me to learn and do here in Southern Alberta, my thoughts have also

turned to each of you. I am truly grateful to have each of you as my child and to have those you

have brought (and will bring) into our family. Each of you has been…

Tis the season

This has been a particularly rough Christmas for me. I don't like Christmas to begin with and now that I am not attending church and with my divorce thrown into the mix, I am finding it harder then usual.

This really moved me so I thought i would share.

Invictus 
By William Ernest Henley
Out of the night that covers me, 
Black as the Pit from pole to pole, 
I thank whatever gods may be 
For my unconquerable soul. 


In the fell clutch of circumstance

looms but the Horror of the shade, 

And yet the menace of the years…
