The Day is Here

PackedBoxesWhat a month! I am very much an introvert and this solid month of family and friend get togethers has been a little tough. It isn't just the days surrounded by people though. It has been very hard to say good-bye to our friends and family. We have continued to stay focused on what God has set before us though. It is an exciting adventure and there is a wonderful group of people in Montreal that are waiting to say hello.

Nearly everything is packed. We are spending the day doing last loads of laundry, packing up all our clothes, and staging the garage for a quick and easy transfer into the U-Haul tomorrow. 2 years ago we had a call with someone from ReachGlobal about possibly being missionaries. It has been a long 2 years. We have had emotional highs and lows that are beyond description. We have grown immensely in our faith and trust in God. Now the day to leave for the field is finally upon us.

Tomorrow we pack our family like sardines into a U-Haul and drive into the unknown. I'm not nervous at all. I can't even sleep at night for excitement and thinking out if everything is done. We know that God goes before us into this and that He will be here watching over the loved ones we are leaving behind. My next post will be from Canada! Crazy! I almost can't believe we are finally leaving tomorrow.

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.
