A closer walk with our beloved friend.

I am With You.




Yet now be strong, Zerubbabel,’ says the Lord; ‘and be strong, Joshua, son of Jehozadak, the high priest; and be strong, all you people of the land,’ says theLord, ‘and work; for I am with you,’ says the Lord of hosts.  Haggai 2:4 New King James Version                                                  

Here is a job with no lay offs or retirement.                                             

For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God not by works, so that no one can boast.  For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do. Ephesians 2: 8-10 New King James Version


Now as we advance in our God given profession we may find ourselves being moved around.


For example I started serving the Lord as a volunteer in a hospital. From there He moved me to be a tree planter. His next placement for me was a teacher. Now He has me a caregiver for my aged mother. Each step was preparing me for the next. 

One thing is for sure, it will be hard. Many times you are going to want to quit. That is the time to take faith and confidence in the verse in Haggai.


So many times I wanted to quit but Jehovah always came along and encouraged me and strengthened me.                                                  

 Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-‘Immeku  (The Lord Is With You) for walking with me through all of the difficult times that have come my way in my service unto You. It is by Your divine grace, strength and wisdom that I am continued to be blessed with to finish the race You have set out before me. I give thanks for these blessings in the name of the greatest strengthener of all Jesus Christ. Amen

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.

After faithfully serving the Lord in China for ten years as a teacher I have been called home to care for my aged mother who has numerous disabilities. As well I regularly do volunteer work visiting seniors in a seniors home. I love being in nature. I say the closer we get to nature the more we see Jehovah. We are blessed in this area with many amazing, easy to ride bicycle trails on old railroad lines that takes us all over Southern Ontario.
