Great Day Off!

What an awesome way to finish my days off! Chayo netted my 14 pound Coho for me, we caught the tale end of my church's prayer meeting as I was showing Chayo where my church is (the Copper Mountain School gymnasium) then stayed up talking till midnight.

Once in a lifetime!

Although I have never cared to see the Stanley cup before we couldn't pass up the chance to see it while it was in Terrace. I mean, really how often does that happen?! The kids thought it was really cool. I thought it was pretty cool as well! Not your average trophy for sure!

Today I was driving along and this song came on the radio. It was like the Lord was speaking straight to my heart. My experience is different from what she speaks of in the song. But when all the walls crash down and I feel like giving up on whatever this is what God reminded me of. We must suffer. When we do we learn what it feels to be held in the great, mighty, and loving arms of our God. Even us who have given our lives to Him, have to taste bitterness in this life. I felt the loving arms of my Father holding me today as I drove, and I cried.

I continue to hear Jesus wisper to me, "You are safe in my arms. You have not failed me. I will not let you go, no matter what, no matter what! You are my daughter and a beautiful woman after my own heart. You have been made acceptable in my sight. I love you daughter. Keep going forward. Don't give up." And I continue... Held.

Where Were You When The World Stopped Turning?

I was on my home to work yesterday and this song came up on my Ipod. Instantly knew I had to post it on my blog. Everytime I hear this song I have the thought "Where Will You Be When Your World Stops Turning?" This song is a great reminder to ask yourself like a line in the song says, "Look at yourself and what really matters." I hate to quote my friend Sam twice , two days in a row but he's right when he said, "If we don't preach Christ crucified we are sending people to hell!"

Terrace Is Hockeville Dream Coming True!

Well I'm feeling pretty blessed! We both didn't enter the first public draw for 50 tickets in early August. Charlene put in 5 ballots and won 1 out of 100 of the public draw tickets on Aug. 25th. I put in more ballots and won the 62nd of 63 last chance tickets drawn on Sept. 7th. So out of 213 ballots draw for the public Charlene and I are going to Hockeyville! When Charlene went to get her ticket she was told we could pick tickets sitting together if we both came in together so I raced there and it's a go!!!

Some Days Are Cooler Than Others

I went out fishing yesterday with a co-worker, Norm. No fish but at my return Charlene told me I was phoned and won a Hockeyville ticket!!! The Canucks will be playing a pre-season game in our Terrace arena on September 14th! Both Charlene and I won tickets but I think we'll be sitting apart.
What an absolutely blessed day as a neighbor also gave me a 4 month old digital water cooler (Probably about $200) that they weren't using.
I shall post a picture of the tickets later when we get them. Woo-hoot!
