A special friend, Mariam, Watoto Village, Uganda

16 years old

Other special friends from Rwanda, Sri Lanka, Laos, Bolivia and Israel.

I love to read and always have one or two books on the go. Try to be in The Word as much as possible too. I really enjoy Christian fiction and loved Jan Karon's Mitford series. Was sorry to see it end. Also thought the Yada Yada books by Neta Jackson were great - the original series of 7 books. I think I've read all the Maeve Binchy and Belva Plain books, and enjoy Francine Rivers. Now I have a Kobo e-reader so am discovering a lot of new authors.

Not sure what my favorite is - love color in my life. I wear a lot of black & white, also brown & green, and brown & black together. Need to spruce up the wardrobe, but in my home I am currently into red accents in the kitchen, blue in the livingroom and pale green & pink in the bedroom! Who knows what the next change will bring.

Hmmm, what don't I like? Not much! Really enjoy Greek food as well as Indian, Thai and Japanese cuisine and almost all fish and seafood. Like to try many ethnic foods, but always look forward to an old-fashioned full-course turkey dinner! I don't eat much meat, and am a quasi-vegetarian (except for the turkey dinners, LOL!) Never met a cheesecake I didn't like! Add pizza to that too.

Well it's a long story! Maybe I'll do a blog with an outline of my life's highs and lows. I am a committed Christian and my whole life story is a testament to God's love, grace, mercy and guidance.

Romans 5:8 But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.

I'm on the Prayer Team at our church and am humbled by the opportunity to pray for people and to witness the healing in their lives.

I am also a breast cancer survivor - over 7 years now!

And a proud Canadian!

The Garden

I live in the Garden of Eden,
Where God provides for me.
He protects me, He loves me,
And gives me everything I need.

And I live in that Garden of Old,
And God has sent His Son.
He’s my friend, my companion,
And also the lover of my soul.

Then Jesus brought His Spirit
Who does indwell in me.
So I abide in Him, and He
abides in me.

We walk through the Garden together,
And He keeps his arms around me.
Together we worship the Father and
Fellowship all three.

All of a sudden I notice that we
Are not alone.
All around me Guardian Angels
Sent from the Throne.

And, yes, there’s a snake in the Garden,
But I am taught not to dread.
Jesus gave His power,
To step on this enemy’s head!

I live in the Garden of Eden,
And this is where I choose to be,
With Father, Son and Holy Spirit
Looking after me.

This is the Kingdom of Heaven
And all is as it should be.
There is Love, Peace and Joy
And God’s Grace covering me.

I like peace and quiet most of the time and my home is very important to me. Enjoy sharing email with my friends and spend a lot of time on the computer. I have my favorite t.v. shows, but can do without t.v. (for a while anyway!) if I have to. Love spending time with friends over a meal or coffee. My church and church family are very important to me. I like sunshine, but not too hot or humid weather. I would love to have a small pet, but unfortunately that's not possible where I live right now.

Sorry to have MIA, yet again.  My brother had been in the hospital for 11 weeks, and passed away a week ago.  Memorial service was held on Saturday.  Always seems to be something going on here.  Never a dull moment.  Hope you are having quieter times.  For those that are ill, or recuperating from surgeries, I hope that you are feeling better and getting stronger each day.

Hope you have a good day.

HAPPY NEW YEAR Dianne. Hope you had a lovely Christmas with Family/Friends.

Mine was lovely - we had a 22 degree day, so had a hot lunch outside on our back porch. There was 8 of us - 7 family and 1 girlfriend of my nephew. A beautiful day, with no arguments. What more could you wish for, lol.

It's been about 4 months since I came onto NOTH - maybe longer. Life seems to pass me by so quickly. I turned 55 a week or so ago. For the life of me, I don't know where those years went - Frightening!! Still, I feel blessed to have had the life I've experienced. Good friends and Good Family.

Again, I sent you blessings for 2015. Hugs from Deb x x
