Tender Mercies

My dad was killed in a motorcycle accident in August 2011. Witnesses could not tell why he lost control of his motorcycle on a smooth stretch of highway in Northern California, not far from the Oregon border. Nothing could have prepared me for that horrible moment when the coroner called my home to tell me the news. Yet when we spoke, it was as if something in my spirit recognized his spirit. When I asked him about his faith in {Read More}

Pointing Out Pictures in the Clouds

I love clouds. We’ve lived in Toronto, in New York State, in Southern California and in Manitoba. We have traveled through most of the United States, a little in Mexico and I have been to Europe. Compared to all the places I have lived or experienced, Manitoba is by far the winner win it comes to clouds and sky. The skies can be a richer blue than anywhere else and the clouds have so much more depth! A few years {Read More}

Life in the Whirlwind

This year has been a season of change for my family. Our family has grown by two daughter-in-laws, we have moved from where we lived for twelve years to start ministry at a new church field, traveled internationally and found out I will be a grandmother. All of this in such a short period of time, it has been like living in a whirlwind. In reflecting on what God has taught me, I believe trusting Him would be number one {Read More}

November: Jesus is Faithful & True

 “Your love O, Lord, reaches to the heavens, your faithfulness to the skies.” Psalm 119:90 A wise mentor once asked me when I was overcome with worry, “Kellie, was He faithful yesterday? He will be faithful today and tomorrow too.” It’s not that I forget His faithfulness or promises, more that I allow the world to hold my eyes and ears too long. It’s easy to become distracted by the cares of this world. It is equally important to recognize {Read More}

Accepting God’s Will

My Father, if it is possible, may this cup be taken from me. Yet not as I will, but as you will (Matt. 26:39). Read: Matthew 26:36-46 After weeks of serious illness, tests, and hospitalization, the doctors still were baffled at what was wrong with me. Their medical diagnoses had gone from curable sickness to possible chronic disease to tests for ominous terminal illnesses. Terminal illness? I didn’t want to die. I wanted to live and nurture my grandchildren. “Lord, {Read More}

When God Allows Pain

Have you ever poured liquid into a container just to have it run out again? To your dismay there was a crack in the container. It wouldn’t have mattered how much you poured in because it would have assuredly drained out again. You had a broken vessel. Sometimes I feel like a broken vessel. When my heart is broken by an event which my loving Heavenly Father has allowed in my life, I weep. My chest physically aches to think {Read More}

Strength in Weakness

We hear that God is Jehovah Raphe, the Healer. But what about when we, or someone we love, is not healed? When it seems that the number of our days is unfairly less and we are robbed of significant moments that our contemporaries take for granted? My husband’s best friend Paul has Lou Gehrig’s Disease. Paul is losing motor function from his toes to his head. Soon he will be unable to speak, chew, swallow, and eventually— breathe.  His wife {Read More}

No More Shame

Our dog has this habit of walking with her head down. Sometimes she even approaches you, cowers, and tucks her tail between her legs. Do you do the same—with others and with God? Do your struggles—past and present—make you feel humiliated, worn down, guilty, and ashamed? There are many situations that can have this effect on us: · Unemployment. · Infertility. · Disability. · Financial troubles. · Marital issues. You’re not alone. From the beginning of mankind, people have felt shame. {Read More}
