Lord, so many times I fail; I fall into disgrace. But when I trust in you, I have a strong and glorious presence protecting and anointing me. Forever you’re all I need! Psalms 73:26 TPT https://bible.com/verse-of-the-day/psa.73.26/997
I woke up this morning realizing that today was 3 years since I retired. What a joruney for the last 3 years. I will say that I was so blessed to be able to reire while in my mid 50’s. I just don’t know how time has gone so fast over the last 3 years.
I also realized that I have not written very much over the past 18 months, That will be changing as I have a story to share with all of you. Over the coming months I am going to share a story of faith and God’s goodness.
I heard a great expression this morning. The company Promises Performance BUT GOD PERFORMS PROMISES. There is so much truth to that. Even in 2021 God continues to Perform Promises.
We can never doubt that God is still in the Miracle Working Business.
One update I will give this morning is for the last 19 months I have been doing Facebook Live calls to encourage people and remind people of God’s love. Someone recently told me that I am close to 350 Calls. In my wildest imagination I would never have thought that I would be doing FaceBook live calls. I do realize that retirement allowed me to do these calls. I would not have been able to do them if I was still working. I know that the calls have been an encouragement to me and many others. I wonder how long I will continue with them.
Just a short post for today, have an amazing day everyone and remember God loves you so much and He wants the very best for you.
16 That is why we never give up. Though our bodies are dying, our spirits are being renewed every day. 2 Corinthians 4:16 NLT https://bible.com/bible/116/2co.4.16.NLT

My apologies for not writing in my Blog since March….For many of us the world has been upside down. But in our house we remain focused on what is important during this crisis the world has been go through.
In early March we went to Georgia for 6 days, and while we were gone so many things changed. Upon our return to Canada we had to self quarantine for 14 days. That sure was interesting, no opportunities to leave our home. Many of you were faced with the same thing.
It was during day 2 of our quarantine that an idea dropped into my mind and I know that the idea was from God. I went on Facebook live on March 18th to encourage all my friends. Giving a daily message of hope and inspiration.
Today was Day 111 of the “Live at 9” Facebook posts…. People are telling me that they are being encouraged and that is why I continue them to today. I am trying to remind people that the Lord is with us and that He will never fail us. The calls are between 10 and 15 minutes in length. For someone who doesn’t like being in front of the camera it has been interesting.
That is also the reason why I have not been writing the Blog, much of my spare time is used to get ready for the calls.
I have also started to mentor some individuals using technology to communicate and that has been an absolute blessing to me.
I know that this time has very difficult for many people, but I know that we are going to get to the other side. I don’t want to be the same, and I don’t others to be the same. During a crisis we can grow and I have seen so much growth in my life, and I thank God for that. I have realized more than ever that I want to be used by God to impact people. He is currently using the Facebook live calls and I am so grateful for that.
I know that God has big plans for all of us, we just have to be open and receptive to His leading. It’s July 8th, let’s use the last half of the year to really make a positive difference in the lives of people.
The 2 hips are now just over 15 months old and are doing great. I still will say without hesitation if you need your hips replaced, do both at the same time if the doctor makes that offer. With the “hips” being 15 months old I am reminded that I have now been retired for 20 months. I still am enjoying retirement, and I know I would not be able to do all the things I am doing if I was still working.
Yesterday I was on my hands and knees staining our deck for about 3 hours and did not have any issues at all. Another blessing from the Lord. Without the new hips there is no way I could have done the work.
I have also been spending more time with my parents as one never knows how much time they will have left. Roxanne and I recently took them to Jasper with us and everyone had a great time. Cherish every moment that you have with family. As for travel I think there will be lots of “Travel Alberta” vacations this year.
We are going to get through the Corona Virus, we are going to get through everything that is going on at present and when we do we can be reminded that God is faithful.
Psalms 126:5-6 (Passion Translation) tells us this, and we can always be confident that He will be with us.
5 Those who sow their tears as seeds
will reap a harvest with joyful shouts of glee.
6 They may weep as they go out carrying their seed to sow,
but they will return with joyful laughter and shouting with gladness
as they bring back armloads of blessing and a harvest overflowing!
I appreciate your time in reading today, and I do commit to writing on a more frequent basis.
Have an amazing day everyone and remember God Loves You So Very Much.
