Winter Sunset Over The Bog

The stars are God's fingerprints. The sun is a mere smidgen of His radiance. The moon is to remind us that He doesn't sleep at night. The vastness of space proclaims the infinity of His wisdom, while the sand pebble indicates His thoroughness with the purest details. The lion hints at His fearlessness, the bear at His power, the hawk at His keen insights. And yet, these possess only a tidbit of God's Omnipotence and omnipresence. Every tree points toward heaven; every bird has a song to sing; even every moment of wind goes in some direction. There is nothing chaotic about your beautiful designed world. All creation has a message to tell. It says, "Listen, there is a God. There is a God!"

Sir Humphrey Hug!

Dressed in a swoosh British cap and boxer shorts, complete with his own birthday certificate and a note from Frances (who stuffed him with hugs just for me!) Sir Humphrey Hug popped in to stay. He is a happy little fellow who giggles joyfully when tickled making everyone else giggle too.
He has had quite a few adventures since coming to town. His premier appearance was at my friend Denise's house where he was a big hit. He got to meet lots of people and after taking one look at that banquet table he decided he might get to enjoy this new place.
He got to meet Auntie on Christmas day and then the snows came and the wind blew and finally a day of sun and Sir Humphrey Hug got to play in the snow with his new hat and sunglasses. The adventures just keep coming for Humphrey as next month he is going to visit Montreal, Quebec and might need a new outfit for that trip!

January Blahs!

Well the after holiday blahs have hit me hard this year. It hasn't helped that I have had a flu bug for almost two weeks. I am struggling to find the energy to get going with all that needs doing this year.
As well the weather just can't seem to make up it's mind. One minute we have the pineapple express going through with down pouring rain and temperatures of 11 C the next we have clear skies and temperatures of -3 with a promise of snow shower the day after. We have had the worst winter that I can remember here in a long time and yet the east is awash is sunshine and warm temperatures go figure.
I have spent the last few days trying to clean up the holiday mess. Throw out the dead flowers, pack up the decorations clean out the refrigerator and vacuum up the bits and pieces all over the carpet.
I am so longing for some sunshine and warm temperatures and some hiking in the mountains. Spring seems so far away at this time of the year.
