'Carry on'

Good Afternoon, or whatever is the best greeting to you, in your part of the world!

We have had a full plate since I last wrote; however, thought while there was a tid quiet moment, I would write a bit to bring you up to date.

Later yesterday afternoon, we watched the movie, 'Amazing Grace', about William Wilberforce; and how he finally was successful in his long hard fought battle in bringing about the Bill in the English Parliament for the Abolition of Slavery. (Horrifying and deplorable living conditions aboard the ships / sailing vessels in those days). Also, how greed seized those, who did not seem to care about the well being of their fellow man; rather they were more interested in creating massive profit for themselves, at others' expense. ie. abused slaves.

We also saw a heart warming / tear jerker movie last night, called 'November Christmas' - about a young girl, age 8, who had cancer (leukemia, I think). The prognosis did not look good (after many bouts of drugs, tests etc); but with the POSITIVE help / reinforcement of family and friends, she survived, to tell her story, when she reached adulthood...A very touching story; a good one to appreciate when one is feeling particularly down and out etc...The poor family and others, what they had to go through; because they had their own personal tragedies and problems to come to terms with. But they all rallied together - had Halloween in August and Christmas sooner. Very heartfelt.

Would like to share a few tidbits that are from the Bible, that keep my heart beating with confidence and encouragement! "Be still and know that I am God" (Psalm 46:10) and "Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not unto your own understanding. In all your ways, acknowledge Him and He will direct your path". (Proverbs 3:5-6).

Alan and I are doing just that; and we know we have done our best. Very hard to deal with vindicativeness, lies, deception, malice, the works... The movie, 'Amazing Grace' is most timely. However, we have not given up; because we know He has a Purpose for all of this debauchery. And, that He has a good Plan for us at the end of it. I know that I have referred to these Biblical bittids as well; but here goes again; as this provides me with extra comfort and reassurance.

"And we know that God creates all things to work together for good; to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose." (Romans 8:28). Also, "Let us not lose heart in doing good, for in due time we shall reap if we do not grow weary." (Galatians 6:9).

Yesterday morning, I embraced the Vision Channel - ie watched 'Hour of Power' ( and that was totally fantastic and uplifting! Trust in Him with all your heart! I recommend tuning into that inspiring ministry, as well as many others. Also, 'Living Truth' ( Charles Price shares some 'food for thought', re: evidence (he quotes some awesome Biblical passages) that the Holy Spirit is within you. Charles is saying that there is a 'hunger to know Christ; a hunger to be like Christ; and a hunger to serve Christ.' Methinks, if you check out his ministry, these bittids will provide you with a greater clarity and understanding.

Today it is pouring with rain, washing off the remnants of the recent heavy snowfall; when the daytime temps were at a mere 18 degrees Fahrenheit. Now it is at 40 degrees F; methinks, I am appreciative of this milder weather, compared to the cold Arctic front that we experienced last week.

Like the above cheery photo image. Before too long, the daffodils will be back in bittidz bloom!

Anyway, will keep you posted, when we know more tidbitz.

Peace and God Bless.

Be encouraged, when 'in the middle'

Good Morning, or whatever is the best greeting to you, in your part of the world!

Eventhough, we have been innundated with a massive blanket of snow; it is warmer (30 degrees Fahrenheit, compared to the 18 degrees F, a couple of days ago). Am thankful, that Alan and I went to Costco yesterday; one less location to drive to today. Plus our once empty larder has now been restocked with the necessary tidbitz staples.

We are still 'in the middle'; and methinks my most recent post (may be helpful to refer to it), sums things up; and hopefully gives a tidbit of an uplift to all those, who are experiencing their 'trials and tribulations' at this time.

The following Bible verses provide me with such a reassuring comfort and resolve, to continue and not give up. God has a GOOD plan for us; and it is simply a matter of having the FAITH to 'keep on trekking.' Live one day at a time; and then when you look back, you know that He has helped you sustain those tough moments.

Romans 8:28 - " And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose."
Galatians 6:9 - "And let us not lose heart in doing good, for in due time we shall reap if we do not grow weary."

I refer again to Joyce Meyer's empowering message: "The Only One You Can Trust"
'All things do work together for our good! My husband, Dave, says this is a key scripture for Christians when we go through hard or disappointing times. When something doesn’t happen the way we would like it to happen, we can believe God will work things out for good. It’s the place we can always come back to in every kind of trial.' (Romans 8:28).

Also, I have just noticed our computer did not include the highlighted Scriptures that Joyce was referring to, while sharing her teachings of Christ. If you tune into her ministry 'Enjoying Everyday Life' (, you may be enlightened with a bittidz 'spark' of hope and encouragement, to help you have a better day!

Will be taking some pictures of the 'winter wonderland'; and will post them a bittid later. I love the above gentle and kind photo image: 'Seek and Ye Shall Find.'

Also, here is wishing all those who are celebrating THANKSGIVING today, a 'Happy Thanksgiving.' We have so much to be thankful for; and to me, each and every day is like a 'mini thanksgiving.' Regardless of your circumstances, remember to 'Praise Him In ALL Things.'

Peace and God Bless.

"In the middle"

Good Morning, or whatever is the best greeting to you, in your part of the world!

Where have these weeks gone; particularly these past seven days! We have been 'in the middle' as per the message from Joyce Meyer ( re: "How Jesus Resurrection Can Help You Through Hard Times".

Thank you Joyce (and Dave), for your enlightening insights; because this is exactly where Alan and I have been and are today. I read this last night, in the middle of the night; and it provided me with many bittids of 'good cheer.' Am quoting her article and hopefully, this will give you some extra encouragement, as it did / does for me. Right on, about being right 'in the middle.'

"How Jesus’ Resurrection Can Help You Through Hard Times
by Joyce Meyer

Are you going through a hard time? Maybe you recently lost your job, or you’re dealing with a death in your family. Or maybe you’re just not sure anything good in life can happen to you. Whatever you’re dealing with, I want you to know that you’re not alone and something good can come from the tough spot you’re in right now. God promised.

Jesus experienced hard times too…the road to the cross was no small matter. But He had to decide to go through it. He even asked God if it was really necessary. (But we know how this amazing love story ended.)

Just like Jesus had to make a choice, you and I also have to decide to go through hard times.

Is Good Friday Really Good?
As we celebrate His resurrection, I like to look at how we go through our own hard times. I think we also go through our own private crucifixion and resurrection on a somewhat regular basis. Often I say “Friday always comes before Sunday.”

Ever wonder why we refer to the day of Jesus’ death as “Good” Friday, since it’s a day that involved so much pain, agony and heartache? Well, it’s because the result of this particular Friday—Christ’s resurrection from the dead on Sunday—was good.

In our daily lives, we need to believe that when we go through hard times, the result will be good. But when we're hurting, probably one of the most challenging things for us to remember is that God is going to work it out for our good.

The Only One You Can Trust
All things do work together for our good! My husband, Dave, says this is a key scripture for Christians when we go through hard or disappointing times. When something doesn’t happen the way we would like it to happen, we can believe God will work things out for good. It’s the place we can always come back to in every kind of trial.

Now this doesn’t mean the trials are necessarily good, but God can work them out for our good because He is awesome. You have to be some kind of awesome God to be able to take bad things and turn them around for good!

If we love God and really want His will for our life, I think it’s safe to say that we can trust Him to bring good from it—no matter what happens to us. Even if we have to take detours because of our own stupidity or if we’re innocent but someone else gets involved and brings hurt and pain into our life, we can trust God to work it out. I like to say, “No person on earth and no devil in hell can keep me from God's will.”

The Crucifixion: Growing in Hard Times
It’s comforting to really believe things will work out okay…even on a day like Good Friday, with so much suffering and pain. When nothing made sense and everything was hard, God worked it out for good—bringing the greatest blessing mankind will ever receive!

We can believe Friday was good because of the result it brought, not because of what happened at the time.

I know after I have gone through a really hard time, I’ve looked back and thought that I wouldn’t even be half the person I am now if that wouldn’t have happened. Haven’t many of us experienced this? Don’t we wish we could just grow in good times?

But we only seem to really grow during hard times. I think it’s because it’s during those times that we really press into God and go to a deeper level in our relationship with Him. Why? Because we have to. It’s our only choice if we want to make it through the difficulty. When we trust God, He gives us the comfort of knowing that He can work bad things out for our good.

Two Sides of the Cross
There are usually two sides to everything. The cross has two: a crucifixion side and a resurrection side. And Jesus had to endure one side to get to the other. But if He hadn’t endured, then we'd all still be left without a Savior and no forgiveness of our sins.

Hebrews 12:2 says that Jesus, for the joy of obtaining the prize on the other side of the cross—the resurrection—endured the pain. Like Jesus, we have to endure bad things. To endure means to outlast the devil; to be steadfast long enough to let the trial do whatever it's going to do in our lives and get from one side of the cross to the other.

The Grave: Waiting for a Good Ending
Now, we don’t just go from Friday to Sunday. We have to learn to endure Saturday, which I think is sometimes the hardest to do. We'll call it the middle. In everything, there's a beginning, an end, and a middle. The beginning is sometimes a little bit exciting because it's a new thing. And the end is certainly exciting because it’s where we experience the victory. But, oh…that middle! The Saturdays may be even harder than the Fridays because on Saturday, we're in the grave and we’re not sure what’s going to happen next.

Most of the time, we don’t know how long the middle's going to last, and although God knows…He's not telling. (Isn't He great at keeping secrets?) So we need to remember that when we’re going through the middle of something, we can be assured Sunday always comes after Friday. But we have to endure Saturday—we have to outlast the devil, remain steadfast and not give up or quit. When we do, we will enjoy the resurrection benefits and blessings that come on Sunday.

The Resurrection: Making It Through
So, I want to remember that Jesus endured the cross because He knew what was waiting on the other side of it. In our daily lives, we are going to have to endure some things, and we’re going to face some hard times. But the only way to do it is to go through it.

Whether we’re hit by an unexpected circumstance, suffering for doing something wrong or for resisting temptation and sin by doing what’s right, we have to go through things. But waiting for you on the other side of the hard times is the joy of obtaining the prize—the good result."

In closing, Alan and I have come to the tidbitz resolution that we are where He wants us to be (in accordance with His Will, Purpose, and Plan); and that somewhere, somehow, He will Guide us through all this bittidz. We have experienced many a 'trial and tribulation'; however, we are going to keep on 'trekking'; and not give up! Last night also, before I went online to Joyce's website, I turned to the Bible. I ASKED to be 'Directed' to a Bible passage, that would give me stalwarth hope! Guess which one it was? JOB 42:10-17. AFter reading that, I thought wow! Invigorated plus! I was then further 'Guided' to Psalms 90-93; and the verse in Psalms 91:4, really spoke a heartfelt tid to me. "He will cover you with His pinions. And under His wings you may seek refuge; His faithfulness is a shield and bulwark."

This morning, it is approx 18 degrees Fahrenheit; definitely chilly winter weather here. In fact, we are the recipients of an arctic air flow mass. Yesterday we went looking for some 'street people', to give them a bit of an uplift; along with a huge batch of Alan's freshly made homemade soup, as well as some old jackets (some of which were lightweight; but windproof). In this cold spell, one has to be dressed all the more warmly; and 'layered' clothing works best. The three 'homeless' people we located, were ecstatic! This made us all the more grateful and thankful for our Blessings!

This was a photo taken of our Blue in April; felt like posting it. Just the other day, somebody thought he was 'Fido' LOL! He does resemble him; however, this picture does not really do Blue justice.

Have to go for now; however, will keep you posted.

Peace and God Bless.

Uplift and Encourage!

Good Afternoon,

We have had a full day thus far; having made some more bittidz calls etc. Now, it is simply a matter of 'waiting' again.

The work crew is really 'going to town' on the fences. Alan made a couple of pots of coffee (remember we now have a much smaller coffee pot) for the hardworking men; and the delicious coffee, along with some fresh sugared doughnuts from the local bakery (not from me, LOL!) hit the spot with them. The new fence, when finished, will look grand, methinks! We have a few tidbitz trees scattered about, as well as some rhodos and shrubs in pots; so there has been extra special care taken to preserve all these beautiful arbors and plants.

Tidbit - Be of good cheer to all you meet. Make a point of brightening up someone else's day! ie. Even offering coffee / doughnuts brings a smile and an uplift and / or a boost to one's spirits!

Bittid - Know too, that while we Pray and do our best to do what is 'right' in God's Service, Satan 'preys' all the more upon us, to create as much confusion, derision, and division as possible. This is where mending 'broken fences' come in to play, and what we can all do, to better communicate in our own little corner of the world, as well as globally.

Also, as soon as we give Thanks to Him for the 'trials and tribulations' experienced, it is as if we are 'set free!' In turn, our Faith is bolstered all the more in Him; and upon appreciative reflection, we know that He has 'sustained' us through each and every day! We believe steadfastedly in our hearts, that 'ALL things are possible with Him'; as HE HAS OVERCOME.

I love the above photo image, with its empowering message of: 'Seek and Ye Shall Find.' Hope today's bittids provide some tidbits of encouragement, as well as hope, to all those who are in the midst of a 'spiritual battle.'

Peace and God Bless.

Reflective 'grains' of thought

Good Morning, or whatever is the best greeting to you, in your part of the world!

This is just going to be a short post today; however, I just want to reiterate that truly life is too bittid short; and that if you can, mend the 'broken fences.' You can refer to my most recent post for a tidbit of 'helpful' background, if you wish.

However, it does make things a bit easier, if there is a mutual two way street; as the 'gate swings both ways'. I think if people were to mend 'broken fences' in their 'own back yards' (with His Guidance), there would be far less problems throughout the world.

Tidbit - Best too, that you first check out the 'log' in your own eye', before criticizing the 'speck' in someone else's eye. Pray to Him to help you with this step.

Bittid - If you genuinely still believe you are being discriminated against and / or excluded; as saddened as you may feel, graciously take a step back; and leave it to Him to work everything out, as per His Will, Purpose, and Plan. If you find you are overwhelmed, weighted down by burdens etc, simply 'cast all your cares upon Him.' You will be uplifted and if you maintain the Faith, He will Provide the Solutions.

This is a busy week for us. Once we know more bittidz, you will know more. Fortunately, it is a dry, sunny, and 'blustery gustery' morning; and the young 'crew' have returned to tackle the replacement of the fences. Yesterday it was pouring with rain; so the project had to be put on hold.

Over the weekend, amongst other errands etc, we had to purchase a new coffee pot; as our old trusty one, literally peetered out; from 'old age.' The compact replacement was on sale, is about half the size of the other one; and eventhough it only makes five cups of coffee, it has its tidbitz pluses! For example, the coffee has never tasted better. So, perhaps it was tid time for a change. The coffee also won't go to waste; because we can always make a second batch of FRESH coffee.

Love the above photo of my favourite coffee mug, with its wonderful messages of encouragement and comfort. Am also really appreciating my morning coffee; both from the new coffee pot, as well as from this old special cup of Blessings. Hope you receive some awesome Blessings today. Hang in there!

Peace and God Bless.

Mending 'broken fences'

Good Afternoon, or whatever is the best greeting to you, in your part of the world!

Today is my Mum's birthday; she would have been 93 years young!!! I remember her with love and I am thankful that she was my Mum. She did her bittidz best. It is not easy at tid times to being a 'Mum'; particularly if unpopular decisions have to be made. I can reflect appreciatively what tidbitz my Mum had to go through with me. Now, I am both a Mum and a young grandma; and there is always something to learn.

We have had quite the week; and a lot happening. However, will wait to share some news when we have things confirmed; one bit way or another. Alan and I are simply 'going with the flow.' (His Flow).

Throughout our complex, new fences are being constructed to replace the old worn out wooden ones. Today, a crew of four young husky men are energetically working on building our fence. It will look fantastic when completed. As an appreciation for their hard work, we will give them a beer to take home with them, at the end of their work day. We would rather offer them a beer at our home; however, you can not drink and drive in our Province.

Tidbit - Building strong fences are wonderfully effective; however, the heart is another matter. ie. Regardless of your circumstances, do not allow yourselves to have a 'hardened heart'. Let the problems go. Also, never forget that if you love someone, let them go. If they come back, they are yours. If they don't, they never were.

Alan and I are experiencing some sad and disheartening 'trials and tribulations'; however, we are determined to continue to be of 'good cheer' to others, regardless of what is or isn't taking place. When we were out earlier, it was as if the Holy Spirit firmly got ahold of us; and directed our paths to those who were in need of an uplift. (That is most of us, methinks!) By giving gentle encouragement to others, either by a kind word, a smile, or even a small gesture, every one's spirits are immediately bolstered!

A few minutes ago, Alan took out a fresh pot of coffee and some chocolate Oreo cookies to the crew. It hit the spot; particularly as it is a very crisp cool Fall day.

We have been reflecting upon much; and we are continually grateful for all our Blessings, He has wonderfully Provided for us. When you are feeling discouraged, disappointed, disillusioned, etc. just ASK Him to uplift you so that in doing so, it alleviates your heart of sadness, bitterness, resentment, anger, malice, jealousy, whatever.

Bittid - Lest we forget, the Bible says: 'Do unto others, as you would have them do unto you.'

Here is to mending 'broken fences' (be it with family, friends, neighbours, colleages, adversaries, whomever), with better communication and understanding, as well as sharing a genuineness, and a 'generosity of spirit.' Remember, that life is too short to be unforgiving and have a hardened heart. Inasmuch, as we have just honoured Rememberance Day on November 11th, methinks, we should also focus with His Help, on mending the 'broken fences' in our 'own back yards.'

I like the photo image with its empowering tidbit message. Also, earlier this week, I gave Rhonda Lazerte's ministry (Door of Hope) a telephone call and I was extra joyful, when I reached her in person! She is just as 'down to earth', as she is on her T.V. show on the Vision Channel. She suggested that I read OUTLOUD the last five Psalms (Psalms 146 - 150)- because the Lord LOVES PRAISE etc. It is amazing what transpires after reading these Psalms; particularly when you read them in a melodious and 'roaring' voice. For those of you, who would like extra encouragement (and / or know of others - ie. 'Pay It Forward' - such a good movie!) during challenges / obstacles, a quality thought is to give her a bittid call. Thank you again, Rhonda; much appreciate your ministry in His Service.

Peace and God Bless.

Do not grow weary

Good Evening, or whatever is the best greeting to you, in your part of the world!

It has been several days since I last wrote a post. 'Well' (there is that word again - I wrote a tidbitz post, methinks June 13/07, on that - 'well can be a deep subject'), there has been a lot of 'water under the bridge.' Alan and I have had some unbelievable challenges and He has quite literally AND majestically Prevailed! That does not mean to say that the 'trials and tribulations' are over and done with; however, we can appreciatively reflect upon His Goodness and Grace He Gives to us. He IS our Advocate in helping us Overcome our obstacles. 'ALL Things Are Possible" with Him.

We are still 'plugging away'; eventhough there have been some bittidz delays, disppointments, and yes, even some disenheartedness, dismay, and discouragement. However, the verse from Galatians 6:9 - " And let us not lose heart in doing good, for in due time we shall reap if we do not grow weary" keeps ringing in my ears and singing in my heart! That message helps me from giving up on our dreams. As it happens, Alan and I are a lot further ahead this week, than last week. Hopefully that is of some bittid consolation to those of you, who are feeling war torn, weary, and weak in spirit.

As an extra tidbit of encouragement, when you are the 'recipient' of an array of 'curve balls', flying at you from 'left field', you can take joyfully take heart by knowing you are on the right track in His Service. ie. Romans 8:29 "And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose." Immediately gratefully say in Prayer: 'Thank You'; and shout OUTLOUD, joyfully and confidently -'Praise Him In ALL Things!'

On Sunday, I watched some of the many wonderful ministerial programs offered on Vision T.V. ie. 'Hour of Power; (, and 'Door of Hope'(; amd they have delighted me with some special ephifanies. Also, when I read online 'Enjoying Everyday Life', (, Joyce shares several uplifting insights. If there are some of you, who are feeling downtrodden, dissolutioned, 'down in the dumps', etc. check out Joyce's website. It may impact and change your life (as well as others you know), for the better! Here are a couple of messages / tidbits that I appreciate totally.

ie. Matthew 6:26 (Amplified Bible) - "Look at the birds of the air; they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father keeps feeding them. Are you not worth much more than they?"

"The enemy wants you to be fearful of tomorrow. So your main goal needs to be to enjoy the life Jesus died to give you today. Do what you can to live in righteousness, peace and joy, and trust Him to do the rest."

All the above pretty much sums up the 'valleys' that Alan and I have been going through; and particularly as of late. (Psalm 23 is a most comforting solace).

A pink (Queen Elizabeth Rose climbing rose) is incredibly blooming in our garden! A wonderful Blessing, particularly at this time of year, methinks! Took a bit photo; however, as we have been experiencing a tid of trouble with our computer; the picture will have to wait.

Also, I LOVE this heartwarming story of the 'cracked pot.' Thank you Joyce, for sharing it in abundance!

"Doing Your Best with What You Have
by Joyce Meyer

Do you have joy in your life every single day? This is God's will for you, and He has provided the keys that will bring happiness, contentment and joy regardless of your circumstances.

Are you convinced that your particular circumstances make happiness and enjoyment impossible for you? Well, it’s not true! The keys that God offers you are designed to open doors that you may have thought were locked forever.

Learning to be happy with yourself is a very important key to enjoying your life. If you know that God wants you to enjoy life, why does it sometimes seem impossible? Could it be that you’re unhappy with yourself because you're not perfect? God doesn't require us to be perfect—He made us, and He knows we’re human and will make mistakes. Our job is to get up every day and do our best to use the keys He has provided for us. And when we fail, we must get right with God, receive His forgiveness and go on. We need to quit being so hard on ourselves and enjoy our lives right where we are.

Many people feel that God can't use them because they’re not perfect—this is a lie. God (the Potter) uses cracked pots (that's us) to do His work. As Christians, we are containers that God wants to fill with His goodness and light. Then we’re to carry that goodness and light to a dark world, sharing it with people everywhere we go. Don't be afraid of your flaws; acknowledge them and allow God to use you anyway. Quit worrying about what you're not and give God what you are.

I once read a story that beautifully illustrates the value of cracked pots:

A water bearer in India had two large pots hanging at the ends of a pole that he carried across his neck. One of the pots was perfect and always delivered a full portion of water at the end of the long walk from the stream to the master's house. The other pot had a crack in it, and by the time it reached its destination, it was only half full. Every day for two years the water bearer delivered only one and one-half pots of water to the master's house. Of course, the perfect pot was proud of its accomplishments—perfect to the end for which it was made. The poor little cracked pot was ashamed of its imperfections and miserable that it could accomplish only half of what it had been designed to do. After two years of what the imperfect pot perceived to be a bitter failure, it spoke to the water bearer and said, "I am ashamed of myself, and I want to apologize to you."

"Why?" asked the bearer, "What are you ashamed of?"

"Well, for these past two years, I have been able to deliver only half a load of water each day because this crack in my side allows water to leak out all the way back to the master's house. Because of my flaws, you have to do all this work without getting the full value of your efforts," the pot said.

The water bearer felt sorry for the old cracked pot, and in his compassion he said, "As we return to the master's house, I want you to notice the beautiful flowers along the path." Indeed, as they went up the hill, the old cracked pot noticed the beautiful wild flowers on the side of the path. But at the end of the trail, it still felt bad because half of its load had leaked out once again.

Then the bearer said to the pot, "Did you notice that there were flowers only on your side of the path and not on the other pot's side? That's because I've always known about your flaw and took advantage of it by planting flower seeds on your side of the path. Every day as we walked back from the stream, you watered those seeds, and for two years I have picked these beautiful flowers to decorate my master's table. Without you being just what you are, he would not have had this beauty to grace his house."

Like that cracked pot, you too can accomplish wonderful things. You can make somebody happy. You can encourage, edify and exhort those around you. You can use your gifts and talents to serve God—and as a bonus, you’ll learn to have joy in every area of your life."

To add some further thoughts / bittids. The red Poppy is that much more meaningful to me as each year passes. Perhaps it is because the older (seasoned) we become, the more we reflect upon the sacrifices that others made for our freedom. At this particular time, I ASK Him to Bless all those who unwearingly gave of their lives for our freedom. I thanked the old 'vet' who pinned the poppy on me; and told him, that may the future younger generations (who did not experience the two world wars etc - neither did we, for that matter) also continue with the supportive tradition of wearing a red poppy in genuine rememberance of November 11th. We all have much to be Thankful for.

Peace and God Bless!
