Canadian Musings

Ok, so i can't take a picture to save my life. I don't know why I even have a camara, but I am having a great time. My uncle let me borrow this scooter type thing and now i can go all over the place.  Our house is really quite central to almost anything i could need. The church is like two or three blocks away so is this ridiculously huge mall. Also the bank and grocery store are all really close too. So i can do stuff....

Also the renter who is also my best friend up here, Dan, works as a special ed teacher at a local high school. He and some others have started a ministry at our church for people with special needs. Most of them deal with a mental disability in some form or another. These people i have successfully avoided since fourth grade, and here i am in their group almost.The strangest thing is happening, i am seeing them differently. They are people too!

Today we started a new series at church in proverbs, about being wise. Being around these people made me realize how absolutely foolish my avoidance of them is. Dan has a friend who is a songwriter, and a particular song says, "I am not afraid to be misunderstood!" Turns out i'm petrified of being misunderstood, but now i'm thinking is there anything better to be mistaken for... the most innocent kind of human being alive!


  1. Sounds like you are learning a lot up in Canada - growing wiser by day! Glad to hear you can be more mobile & independent and I'm happy that you have found such a great church & friend while you are there! Hope you continue to learn & enjoy your time in Canada!
