World Travels England Letter

Hello Again!


The wind blew just right and we landed in England! We flew over the famous Stonehenge monument and many beautiful country cottages. When we finally landed in the capital, London, we had a great view of Big Ben. As we looked at the time, we thought about a time when people feared England.


Way back around 500 a.d. was a man named Augustine. He was sent by a pope in Rome to go to England and tell them of God's love for them. Augustine brought a team of men with him for the long journey. As they got closer they began to hear stories about the English. They heard that they were barbarians and that they would all be killed the moment they got there.


Augustine's team was scared to go any farther. After some encouragement from the pope, they made it to England. Augustine sent a message to the king about who they were and why they were coming. Do you know what? The queen was already a Christian! The team was welcomed into the country and Augustine eventually became the archbishop of Canterbury.


You really just don't know about people until you get to know them! We can't wait to get to know new people all over the world. How about you?

If you have access to BBC this would be a great time to watch some British television. Some of our favorite shows include: Top Gear, Shawn the Sheep, and Bang Goes the Theory.

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.

Indescribable

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.

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.
