Bridal Falls

These trees are nestled in the middle of Bridal Falls in Canada.  Isn’t it just amazing?  Our God puts this master piece in front of us to view just because he loves us.

As I looked at the photo a story came to mind, “The Three Trees.”   It reminds us that God has a plan and if we place our trust in Him it will come out better than we could possible imagine! Deb~ Luke 2:1-7, Matthew 8:23-27 and Matthew 27:32-38

Alice

My friend here is Alice. We had the priviledge of getting to know each other at “Family Camp”, while on mission trip in Canada.  Alice is a great young lady that faces challenges everyday as you can well imagine.

“Who shall separate us from the love of Christ?  Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword? No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who love us.” (Romans 8: 35.37, NIV)

I’ve learned through my years of working with special needs
personalities …it’s all in the attitude!!  We all face challenges and it’s our choice as to whether we are going to enjoy life…or play the victim.

Alice enjoys life!  The children surrounding her learned from her example.  They were a little hesitant at first but all it took was one stepping up to befriend her and the rest followed.   It was amazing to watch the love of God flow as each reached out to serve.

“Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.  I tell you the truth, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.” (Luke 18:16-17,NIV)

Her speech is a little slurred and I was having difficulty getting her message some of the time, which is unusual for me.   Then it dawned on me…I looked at the other kiddos and asked, is she speaking Chinese?  They all begin to laugh, Alice the hardest!  Jokes on Debra!

Remember to embrace life, seize opportunities and treat others as you want to be treated no matter the circumstances.  You just might enjoy yourself.  Deb~

Oh, Canada!

This is King Lo, pastor of the Chinese Christian Gospel Church and his beautiful wife, Doris.  We will be leaving in 9 days on Mission Trip to fellowship with his congregation in Richmond, BC, Canada.

I am so looking forward to the “Family Camp!”  My group will be ministering to the children of this wonderful family of God.

We will be out in the middle of nowhere…you know, where the trees reach to the skyline and all you can see is the moon and the stars!  Thank You to our wonderful Creator! 

We ask for prayer, that God would prepare the hearts of those we come in contact with, traveling mercies, and that we will dig deep into the word and come back with a story to tell.

Thank you dear God in advance for what you are going to do in our lives and the lives of this congregation!  Deb~
