Many of you have been praying for Claudia and the uncertainties surrounding her family in regardx to the earthquake that took place in Guatemala in November. Compassion has told me that while the file is not closed and completed regarding this crisis, if we have not heard anything it means that all is well! We continue to wait (somewhat impatiently, I might add!) for a letter from Claudia with more of the personal details, but I imagine it will be a month or two yet. THANK YOU for praying for Claudia and her family! Last night I awoke in the middle of the night to the sound of the rain POURING down.

Four days of the week I am able to leave the 02 Odyssey Minivan at home and ride on two wheels. On Wednesdays I have to run errands on the way home. The first 6km of my ride involves interacting with only 1 or 2 cars. I can burn a bunch of calories. It's a way of dealing with any stress. As a result, I am generally relaxed by the time I get home. I'm able to work a whole other set of muscles than my 12-15km of walking I do with Canada Post. As soon as the snow flies, this will all change. Do you enjoy commuting? If you take public transit, how do you use your time?...Continue reading
