I am loving this song today! Really, I have for a while now. I think my favorite line is "Faith is moving without knowing." Every step we have taken toward Montreal has taken us into the unknown. Today for instance, we sign a lease for an apartment we have never entered in a city we have never been to.

God has prepared us to jump off the edge with Him without fear. Satan and society are still trying to instill fear in us. They would have us believe that God won't provide our remaining funds, that something terrible will happen, or that we are just not strong enough to do this. It is just not true!

Following God is the hardest thing we have ever done. It is hard to go into the unknown. We have had a lot of loving support but they are severely outnumbered by those who would have us turn our backs on God and this mission. The thing is, when you turn away from them and move your focus to God, it is sure a lot harder to hear them.
God I want to dream again. Take me where I've never been.

I want to go there. This time I'm not scared.

Now I am unbreakable. It's unmistakable.

No one can touch me. Nothing can stop me.

God calls us. He prepares us. He never guarantees that faith will be easy. Actually, He is pretty clear in the Bible that it will not be easy. But it is worth every difficulty to see God work in your life, in the lives around you, and to know that the path you are following is leading to Him.

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.
