A friend, most of you know him, Mike Long, has been doing this thing where he lists three good things from each day (and a Bible verse), to help him focus on the good stuffs around. So, being a person who tends to lean towards the pessimistic side if I’m not careful, I thought I’d … More Three Good Things — Day 1
Lucy’s fever hadn’t broke and she was having a hard time sleeping. She’d been tossing and turning and crying all night. The only way she’d stop was if someone would lie down with her. I ended up being volunteered with the task. So, here we are, Lucy finally falling off to sleep and me waiting … More An Unwanted Visitor
What a week. Sunday morning was exciting to me… for the first time since we’ve been here, 1/3 of the folks in church service were under the age of 16. That’s pretty cool. We had a wandering hippy guy come by Sunday night, so that was pretty cool, too. Out there living the dream. He … More Down with the Sickness
Last week, we went to Wolfville to hit up their farmer’s market and we ended up falling in love. It was the most beautiful market I’ve ever seen. So much food. German. Japanese. Bakeries. AND A GUY WHO GRIND HIS OWN FLOUR. Yeah, baby. Living like 1901. We bought some. It made delicious pizza dough … More A new week, a new market, a new life, a new series, and a new job

Trisha was going to leave work early. Then she got an email saying that the … More Should I stay or should I go?
Sunday was the first time we’ve had two services since 2020 started. Just a wild time, this is. Unfortunately, our kids felt sick, so Trisha and they stayed home without me. We started a new series in the morning about different people who followed Jesus, starting with the ever popular and positive Thomas. The night … More Farmers’ Markets… What’s Up With That?
This week was another basic week, guys. Pretty tame. We ended up having church last Saturday instead of Sunday because we were getting 10-15cm of snow… which we definitely got. We spent Sunday inside and hung out. We are in a group chat with the people we were on AIM with in Benin 3 years … More Snow, Games, and Another Week
Hey! Guess what! We didn’t have church AGAIN last Sunday. Freezing rain this time. It was clear… and then in 20 minutes, everything was ice. Awesome. You can’t have people driving in that. The white in the photo is ice…not snow. Just solid ice. We stayed home most of the week again. We’re trying to … More Keep It Simple, Stupid
This was one of those weeks where I had planned to write down things everyday and grow a “post” that way, but as usual, one day turned into another as they often do, and before I knew it, here we are in the same old place as last week. This week was a week of … More When It Snows, It Falls
This has been a glorious week. Nowhere to go. Nothing to do. Just relaxing with the family for the first time in 2 years, I think. We had some gift cards that we’d received for Christmas so on Monday we decided to run up to Dartmouth Crossing to spend said cards. The girls had some, … More Hey, Take It Eeeeasy
