And We Start Again.

Well, we have made it through another year. The world has seen a multitude of events that effect our future; the capture of Saddam Hussein, the tsunami in Indonesia, Katrina in the U.S. and a multitude of other, lesser known events. These events, as horrible as they were, has shown the dark side as well as the good side of humanity. While some people were looting and rioting in the midst of the horror, others were giving their own lives to assist others. After the worst had past, or sometimes while still in the middle of it, the world rallied around those caught in the tragedy. Assistance, both financial and with physical labour, poured into these regions. Stories of survival and heroism came across the airwaves, as did stories of the depths human beings can sink to. It is at times like these I wonder, "How long will you wait, Lord Jesus?"
And now, for other tragic news:
Vancouver Island has seen winds for days now that are strong enough to break branches off trees and throw them on power lines causing power outages all over the Island. People here don't know how to handle the long periods of time without heat and end up huddled under covers in the +8 - +12 degree temperatures, waiting to be rescued.

LOL- the wind is bad enough here, that I feel like the last little pig in his brick house (or apartment) not quite sure that it will hold up, but thinking this has to be the strongest type of structure I could crawl into. I had forgotten for a long time, how the wind over the prairies could be. Try to stay warm. Do some scrapbooking or something.

Yeah, I wish I could get some scrap booking done. Your mom worked so hard on your book, I still can't spark her interest when I say the word, "scrap booking". I think I will have to get Auntie Carolyn and Auntie Colleen to join me. Then your mom can sit in her floodwaters and gale force winds and relax. :-)

Greetings! I know this is somewhat off topic but
I was wondering if you knew where I could get a captcha plugin for my comment form?
I'm using the same blog platform as yours and I'm having problems finding one?
Thanks a lot!

After I initially left a comment I appear to have clicked on the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and now every time a comment is added I receive four emails with the same
comment. Perhaps there is an easy method you can remove me
from that service? Thanks!

Its such as you learn my thoughts! You appear to grasp
so much approximately this, such as you wrote the guide in it or something.
I think that you simply can do with some p.
c. to pressure the message home a bit, but instead of that, that is great blog.
A fantastic read. I will certainly be back.
