Isaiah 58: 11

Isaiah 58:11

The LORD will guide you always; he will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land and will strengthen your frame. You will be like a well-watered garden, like a spring whose waters never fail.

Sixteenth Birthday

Today Max turned sixteen years old. We can hardly believe how time flies. And, as usual, we retold the story of his birth..... hospitals in northern BC on strike, crowded in Labour and Delivery, told to stay home as long as possible (maybe stayed home too long), quick delivery, 27 babies born within 24 hours, Tim didn't get to eat the big snack he had packed, Tim too tired to find his car the next morning, etc., etc.

For Tim and Lisa it was just like it happened yesterday. And yet we now have this very tall, kind, handsome young man. It didn't happen overnight -- it just feels like it did.

Today is also Vergie's birthday. She is somewhat older than 16 but still very young at heart. Vergie had today off to celebrate her birthday and her plan was to go to church early in the morning, cook food for her friends at lunch, and then ride on the buses all afternoon.

She and Max are both pretty easy to please!
