Our Inheritance

Apr 30

Hi there! Have you figured out what makes you the person you are because of what you have inherited from your parents?  Due to Gary’s recent quadruple bypass surgery, we know that his propensity to heart disease comes from his father who had his first heart attack in his 50s.  He died at age 79 because he didn’t have the opportunity for surgery that is now...

Nov 30

Hi All! Do you happen to be a plogger?  You’ve never heard of it before?  Neither had Gary and me.  One day out walking and picking up garbage in Churchville which has become a somewhat regular pattern for us, we met up with two ladies jogging with their dogs.  Gary remarked to them that they pick up after their dogs and we pick up after humans.  One of the ladies...

Shaken Up!

Nov 01

So how’s it going? I said last month we wouldn’t be having an inside pet.  Charlie, our temporary, 19-pound Persian has come to visit.  He belongs to our pastor, Aaron Bouchard and his family.  They are staying with Sara’s parents in Brampton until they can find another rental property in Milton (a matter of prayer!). As soon as Charlie bounced out of his cage the...
