Thoughts and Prayers

What do you even say on a day like this...We do not have any cable channels and I tend to just do work on the computer. Suddenly on Facebook there comes post after post about something terrible that has happened. One of my friends made sure to leave a link and now I am in the loop, not that it is a happy place to be. I have been praying for the families involved in this horrific shooting. I can't even begin to imagine what they are going through!

This kind of news is so hard to process. We are already living in a country where people keep to themselves and avoid strangers. Stories like this can only heighten our fear of others. Not a mother in this country will send their child to school on Monday morning without a twinge in their heart, because you just don't know, you just don't. For our family there is only one reason that we won't worry as the number of "safe" places diminishes and that is God. We are confident in our faith! We know that even if the unthinkable were to happen that God will hold us and keep us. He is our hope in a world that is crashing down around us. We do not need to be afraid!

Cats in Paris: a Book Review

In Montreal adult coloring books are everywhere. When we came back to the states a couple of months ago I found they were popular here too. I really enjoy them and am very particular about what I pick. I like a lot of fine details mixed with whimsy.

Cats in Paris by Won-Sun Jang is simply beautiful. It begins with a sort of tour of Paris, with cats of course. There is a bit of narrative in this portion as well. The art is beautiful but not quite the page covering design work I personally love. The rest of the book makes up for it though. There are patterns and intri'cat' designs. The artwork throughout is beautifully done and a joy to fill in. I am so happy to be able to while away my quiet moments with this book.

Learning the Uke

The Cat Returns is one of my favorite animated films. The end song, Kaze Ni Naru, is one of my favorite parts and gave me the longing to play the ukulele. I found just the uke for me here in Montreal. It is part musical instrument and part souvenir of Quebec. I am not terribly good at it yet, but I am starting to get this song down. Once I have it figured out, I will either attempt to learn the words so I can sing along, or move on to another great song. In the meantime, here is a great cover of the song by someone who has been playing a lot longer than I have.


Have you seen this video by Louie Giglio yet? It is really amazing to see how the universe proclaims God's glory. Take some time to watch it. God really is indescribable.
