Another year is coming up on a close soon, but perhaps that’s one of the reasons I enjoy Thanksgiving so much – it’s a great time of year to reflect on all the joys the year has brought. Sometimes years bring struggles and hardships, but I often find upon reflection, that believe it or not, I am grateful for those as I am the joys too.
Very quick little note to wish you all a Happy Halloween 2019! I hope you are all able to experience and enjoy this fun holiday with good friends and sweet things (and maybe a few surprising tricks too!). Dress up a little crazy, be someone else for a few hours, and remember that life can indeed be fun too.

As Easter is upon us, I wish to express to you all some Easter Thoughts on why I rely on Christ in my life. Because for me, faith in Jesus Christ, has been about the most liberating force ever in my life. Many people have asked me how this is possible.
Last week, my grandmother passed away and so my family has been busy making arrangements for her funeral services in the coming days… I’m sad that she’ll never get the Valentine’s Day flowers I sent her, but what I wrote on the note in the flowers’ card I believe is the best summery of her.
