Oh How I Love Thanksgiving...

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving. I love Thanksgiving. I love this time of year, I love that we stop and think about all of the blessings that we have. I love that we get together with the people we love and eat and laugh and are merry. I love that this holiday reminds us to be thankful not just on this holiday. So I thought I would take a chance to write down some of the things that I'm thankful for......

~ My wonderful Family
~ Grace, even when I can't figure out what it means
~ A place to call home
~ Such a great church family
~ Job Interviews (even though they make me nervous)
~ My best friend Diana
~ Skype so I can talk to my best friend Diana in Haiti
~ Chocolate
~ Lovely Friends
~ Starbucks
~ My Jr. High girls small group
~ Music to groove to
~ 2:52 Basics and all the wonderful people involved
~ Love stories
~ Being able to see Nashville in September
~ My Health
~ Protection
~ Having a Heavenly Father
~ Scarves
~ A tree swing (I always wanted one and now I have one at my new house)

There's so much to be thankful for. I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving whoever you may be and wherever you may find yourself. May you recognize the blessings in your life and thank the Lord for them.

Happy Thanksgiving,
~The Kindred Spirit :)

The Downfall to a Really Good Nap...

It's now 1:38 am....yes in the morning and here I sit wide eyed on my bed. Why you may ask.....because I took a very long nap today. Clearly my body got confused and thought that my nap was really bed time.....I just kept sleeping because it was one of those sleeps where you just can't wake up....your whole body is in it! And now I sit...awake. It's been an interesting evening really....I actually haven't had one like it in a while. Are you ready to hear what I did......I watched tv and chatted with my best friend....haha! I know you were expecting something more but I haven't had a night where I just sat and watched tv in a while and it was kind of nice. I watched Extreme Home Makeover; it was the season premiere and it was quite good. They do such great work on that show, it gives you a warm feeling inside to see the good that they're doing. So I watched tv and then I went upstairs to get ready for bed about 3 hours ago and found that I was wide awake and then I somehow stumbled upon a movie called "If Only" and I watched it on youtube. It's a good movie but quite sad at the end, it does offer a good message though. So now I sit and look at the clock and wonder what time it will be when I actually do fall asleep? Any guesses?

Well tomorrow begins another week. I'm still on the job hunt and waiting for an interview from a particular organization. I hope that they call this week. It's interesting when you become an adult and enter the workforce. I mean I only know that it's interesting to think about getting a job and joining the workforce because I don't really know if it's interesting when you actually have a job and are in the workforce? If and when I do get a job I'll be sure to let you know how it is!

It's a little unusual when you've spent most of your life in school preparing for this time and even if you didn't always like it you could depend on that predictability. Even if you complained you knew school was there and in the fall that's where you'd be. And then you graduate and then someone asks you what you're doing in the fall and you say that you have absolutely no idea! And after you've repeated that to the many people who ask you, it's hard not to feel a sense of panic somewhere in you. What's worse is when the fall comes and then people ask you what you're doing now and you say "oh I'm just looking for a job". It's normal, most of us have been there....but this morning at church someone asked me that question and I felt somehow less. And by less I mean I'm no longer a student, my education is no longer in progress. I mean I'm a lifelong learner and there's a good possibility that I may go back to school in the future but currently I have completed my program and I'm no longer studying in hopes of finishing. I'm finished. Somehow when you say "oh I'm just looking for a job" out loud it doesn't sound as good as "oh I'm currently studying _____(fill in the blank) in hopes of ________ (fill in the blank)! I know that this is what happens when you're done school, it's a natural process....but it doesn't feel very natural. It's like you've worked so hard to get through school and then you have to try and sell yourself and prove yourself just to land something hopefully in your field. It hardly seems fair. I suppose life isn't fair. The one truth that I somehow can rest in is that I serve a God who is bigger than all of this. He made me, He knows me and He has plans for me and He won't let my gifts go to waste. So I'll do my part and step through the doors that I can and trust God to open and shut them according to His plan and perhaps show me a window or two that I never knew was there.

So perhaps I'll get a call this week.....perhaps something else will come?

If I do get a can be sure a new wave of panic will come.

But it's natural right?!?

It's now 2:05 am and I think I might try sleeping. We'll see how it goes!

Sweet Dreams,

Heaven is the Face

I'm not sure if you're familiar with Steven Curtis Chapman but he is a popular Christian artist. He's been singing for quite a long time.....I grew up listening to his stuff. A few months ago his daughter was killed in a horrible accident. Anyways he wrote a song called 'Heaven is the Face' for his new album 'Beauty Will Rise' coming out in November. The song is beautiful and the words are powerful. I've included the link....please check it out.

I Caught The Bouquet!!!!

This is Amber's bouquet from her wedding 2 weeks ago! I caught it after she threw it and can you believe that this is the first bouquet I have ever caught? I actually fought for the thing...I knocked it right out of my best friend's was great! Anyways it is a beautiful bouquet.....the flowers are starting to dry out now but it's still gorgeous. Everyone was asking when I was getting married....I told them that I need to meet a man first....I'm really quite disappointed I didn't meet a Tennessee boy when I was in Nashville....boy I love those accents! I just had to share the pic of the bouquet.

My life is pretty exciting, eh?

Hope ya'll had a great day (like they say in Nashville),

I'm Back!!!!

Summer is over and I'm back in Wainfleet. I just got back on Sunday from my road trip to Nashville with Joy and can I just say that is was the best trip of my life! Nashville is an amazing city and there is tons of stuff to do. We spent our 5 days there going to the Grand Ole Opry, Country Music Hall of Fame, going to a Nashville Preds game, eating at some cool restaurants, spending some time in Franklin, roadtripping from Nashville to Memphis to tour Graceland....and those are just a few highlights. I have tons of pictures on facebook but I'll post a few of my favs.....

So my family has moved into our new house....which hopefully I will post some pics of soon. I'm adjusting very well to life in my large new room! I've also started job hunting which I must say is very stressful. I just hate the time between not having a job to getting an interview to transitioning into life at the new workplace.....but I'm just praying that the Lord has a job for me and hopefully I'll be able to stumble into it. I'm still working part time at my church as the children's ministry assistant which I'm enjoying so I'm thankful that I have something to work at until I find another something.

Yesterday was my 22nd birthday and it doesn't seem like long ago that I was blogging about turning 20! I guess a lot can happen in 2 years....I wonder what will happen in the next couple of years? It seems that this age brings about a lot of change and a lot of independence. I spent my summer living at camp (as you can read below) and it's a lot different coming home and trying to adjust back to living with your family. It's also different learning how to adjust to living with your parents when you somewhere along the way have become an adult least somewhat. The lines start to appear blurry and I guess it's quite frightening for me. I'm hoping once I find a job and settle into that then this new normal will actually begin to feel normal. I guess it's a lot of change at once. My best friend Diana left last week to return back to Haiti to teach for another year. I know she's where she's supposed to be but it's still hard that she's so far away. Pray for her if she comes to mind....she's doing great work!

Well I think that's all for now....I'm hoping to start getting back into blogging now that fall is here and summer is over...but I guess we'll see how it goes!

Sweet Dreams Y'all,

Only 3 Weeks Left of Summer!!!

It’s hard to believe that the summer is almost over. It’s weird for me to think that I won’t be going back to school in the fall, which may I add is 3 weeks away. I hardly know what to do with myself except panic but somehow I know that I just need to keep trusting God about my future. It seems that there’s a lot to trust Him with.

This summer has been jam packed and full of a little bit of everything….sunshine, rain, campfires, pool parties, hoe down’s, timmy’s runs, port elgin cruises, beautiful sunsets, poop (haha), dances, room 14 bonding (wink wink), tears, raspberry turnovers and some wonderful people! I’ve been blessed to meet so many amazing people in such a short time…..that’s one of the nice things about camp.

For those of you who don’t know I moved into the Christian Horizons Conference Centre (CHCC) in a small town called Paisley at the beginning of May to work as the program coordinator for the camp ministry. I share a very tiny room with 5 other beautiful ladies. CHCC serves people who have exceptional disabilities and we have the pleasure of trying to ensure they have a wonderful vacation when then join us for a week or two or sometimes even three! I feel as though the Bruce Country has become my second home. My family rents a cottage about 30 minutes away from Paisley and so it’s funny when we drive into Port Elgin (the closest bigger town to Paisley) I feel like it’s my town because I spend so much time there!

I love taking pictures and editing them. I tried to choose my top five pics of the summer….these are them….

This past week was my family vacation at Chesley Lake. It was a wonderful week…you can check out facebook if you want to see some more vacation pics.

So there are 3 more weeks of camp and then I’m heading home to move into my new house and start up 2:52 Basics. I’m also roadtriping to Nashville with one of my best friends Joy. On top of that I will be on the hunt for a full time (or whatever I can get) job! In my spare time I plan to paint my new room, purge myself of all the junk that I’ve piled up over the course of my lifetime… basically that means a quarter of all the junk since when I begin purging then I also begin reminiscing as to the reasons I’ve kept the junk this long in the first place. Please call me or send me a message if you’d like to go out for coffee….I’d love to hit up a Starbucks (something they’ve apparently never heard of in the Bruce County) and chat.

Anyways I think that concludes this update.

Hope summer’s finding you well!

A Sonnet For Your Evening...

I like this's also in Sense & Sensibility :)

Sonnet 116
by William Shakespeare

Let me not to the marriage of true minds
Admit impediments. Love is not love
Which alters when it alteration finds,
Or bends with the remover to remove:
O no! it is an ever-fixèd mark
That looks on tempests and is never shaken;
It is the star to every wandering bark,
Whose worth's unknown, although his height be taken.
Love's not Time's fool, though rosy lips and cheeks
Within his bending sickle's compass come:
Love alters not with his brief hours and weeks,
But bears it out even to the edge of doom.
If this be error and upon me proved,
I never writ, nor no man ever loved

Sweet Dreams,
The Kindred Spirit

Summer Lovin...

So I'm pretty much inspired right now. I just watched a really powerful clip on YouTube....check it out:

It's called 99 balloons and it's a powerful story about love.

I'm about halfway through my summer now and I'm starting to feel it a bit. I'm getting tired but I'm trying to find the energy to keep things fun and exciting. There are so amazing guests that come to visit camp every summer. This being my second year is wonderful because I recognize so many of the guests and some of them even remember me.

Working and hanging out with the guests brings me such joy but it also makes me think a lot. I think about what we value as humans and what gives us our worth. The truth is that we have value and worth just because we are made in God's image. That simple fact makes us all worthy of life and love. I've been blessed to have a great team to work with here at Christian Horizons as well. Jessica and Ang (featured in the picture below) are on the rec team with me and they are wonderful! Last week we celebrated Canada Day and it was an absolute blast. The weather was rainy for most of the day but cleared up in the evening so we could have a campfire and fireworks. We did karaoke in the morning and we had an indoor carnival in the afternoon....where I had an opportunity to practice my face-painting skills. It was so good to celebrate together.....I love Canada and we are so blessed to live in a wonderful country. I just love having opportunities to celebrate together with people....I think it's one of the most precious gifts. Watching the fireworks in the beautiful Paisley sky filled me with this sense of wonder. God is so big but yet He chooses to care for me.

Anyways I hope you're all having a great summer. I had a chance to come home this past weekend and some exciting news happening with my family is that we are moving.....just down the road but it's a beautiful house and it's very exciting. I'll have to post some pictures as soon as we move (which will be at the end of the summer).

Here's a few of my favourite summer pics so far....

Keep Loving,

Summer is HERE!!!!

Hey everyone,

Sorry it's been a while since I've blogged. I'm here in Paisley working at Christian Horizons again this summer. My role is a bit different than last summer....this year I'm working as the program coordinator. It's a fun and high energy's lots of planning and motivating which does get tiring but I'm enjoying it and I love getting to work with such fantastic people! Here are a few pics of my time so far...

This is the AWSOME Rec TEAM!!!!

A few of us preformed the song 'The Boys Are Back' for talent was tons of fun!

This was my first ever guest when I started at CH.....she's so beautiful and full of life!

Pretty Stellar!

I also graduated from college a couple of weeks ago....which was great.....except now I am definitely feeling the pressure of trying to figure out what comes next for me. I would appreciate any prayer for this!

I know this is a really short update....I'll try and blog some more later.

Hope you're all having an excellent start to the summer :)

Yours Truly,

'Twas the week of Wedding Bliss...

It's hard to believe that school is done....for good! At least for a little while.....that is if I ever decide to go back. My graduation will be in June but I'm done school....wowzers....seems like I just started...and now it's time to become an adult and get a real job. I've never been so scared in my life! It's true that a lot can happen in two years though....I've made some amazing friends. After our last exam a bunch of us went out to's a few pics...

This week is absolutely a crazy one! Erin and Jesse's wedding is on Saturday and my Mom and I are emceeing the wedding so we are busy getting ready for that. Jessica and I are leaving for Christian Horizons next Monday. I worked there last summer for 3 months as a support worker (see previous summer blogs) but this summer I'm returning as the program coordinator and Jess will be my assistant so if you remember please pray for us! I'm really excited for the summer and for getting a chance to work with Jess. I'm trusting that the Lord will help us make this summer great and that He will have some great things in store for us too! I'll try and keep my blog updated as to how the summer is going and I'll for sure have some lovely pics up on facebook!

I've been working on a music playlist for the reception this evening.... and I must say that all this love song business is putting me in the mood for a wedding. There's nothing like Tony Bennett's 'The Way You Look Tonight' to make you want to grab the one you love and stroll the dance floor.....although there won't be a dance at this wedding, I can certainly use my imagination!

Sweet Dreams....especially to all you lovers out there (do I sound like a DJ?) :),

So my good friend Stacey and I have been working for the last couple of weeks on an assistive device for our Technology for Special Needs Class and with the help of my Dad we adapted an old sled and created the ZOOM sled, also known as the Red Lady. There are a few pics below of the sled before and after and our presentation board. We're hoping to find a family who could put the sled to good use so if you know anyone let me know. We also made a pretty sweet commercial with the Zoom Zoom song remixed to all different types of's pretty great. I also loved getting to spend so much time with Stac....that was definitely a highlight.....hopefully our mark will be high!

My Dad's pretty pro when it comes to woodworking.....we couldn't have done the project without him. I'm a pretty luck girl to have such great parents! :)

Hope y'all have a good night (y'all is my new

Lovely Easter Times...

This morning was the Easter sunrise service.....many from my church met at 6:45 to watch the sun come up and celebrate the resurrection. Every year someone says 'the Lord is risen' and we all reply by saying 'the Lord is risen indeed, Hallelujah'. We sang and heard some testimonies from people about what the hope of Easter means to was lovely being all bundled up and watching the sun come up.

My wonderful friend Stacey, from school came to spend Easter with the family. It was great having her....this was her second year spending Easter with us....we are starting a yearly tradition :)

My Grandma has also been here for the last couple days, which has been great. This is the first Easter without Grandpa so it's very special that Grandma can be here with us. I do hope she comes to visit more often. This pic is Grandma setting the table and telling me that in all these years Dad still can't figure out which side the forks go on....I found that very!

It's been a great Easter....hopefully lovely spring weather will follow soon!

Hope your Easter was as great as mine :)

Yours Truly,

You Get The Best of Both Worlds :)

So today was a windy but beautiful sunny day. My great friend Leanne and my brother Greg and I went to see the new Hannah Montana movie. I know it's probably pathetic that I'm 21 and I'm a huge Miley Cyrus fan....but I loved the movie and would definitely recommend it. I must say it was pretty cute seeing all the little kids in the theatre. Here's a few pics from the outing...

It was pretty funny when Greg went up to get his ticket....he muttered "one for Hannah Montanna"....the girl laughed at him and asked him if he was paying for a nap....I was laughing my head off! We also ended our trip with a short walk at the peer but it was still a little too chilly to walk for long!

Tomorrow morning is our annual sunrise service....our church meets at 6:45 to celebrate the's always a highlight! I am not a morning person in the least but it's always worth dragging my butt out of bed early Easter Sunday!

Hopefully I can get in a nap sometime tomorrow!

Sweet Dreams,

If you haven't had a chance to purchase Rascal Flatts new cd entitled 'Unstoppable' I would highly recommend it! I think my favourite song on the album right now is the title of the album 'unstoppable' but I really like 'Close' too and 'Things That Matter'!

Oh and Happy Easter everyone.

Do you know why they call this Good was good for us and bad for Jesus. I'm so thankful that this day so many years ago brought me freedom, grace and a chance to really LIVE!!!!

More Balloons, Please...

One of my favourite books is SexGod by Rob Bell. In the end of the book he writes a story....I just read it again today and thought I'd share it....

"Several years ago, I conducted a wedding ceremony on a Saturday afternoon in June. The bride wore a white summer dress, the groom a white linen shirt. They insisted on the simplest ceremony possible. It was held in a park in a grove of trees. Their family and friends stood in a circle, with the three of us in the middle. I began with a welcome, they exchanged vows and rings, I pronounced them husband and wife, they kissed, everybody clapped. The ceremony took seven minutes.

They were then each handed a cluster of helium balloons on strings. The balloons, I told everybody, were symbols of their past marriages, pregnancies they had chosen to terminate, people they had had affairs with when they were previously married, relationships that had not lasted. As a picture of starting over, together, they wanted their first act as a married couple to be letting the balloons go.

They walked out of the grove of trees into an adjoining field. Just the two of them, holding hands, standing in knee-high grass, exchanging words that only they could hear. Then they raised the balloons above their heads and let them go. We all stood there, watching those balloons float away until they drifted from sight.

There are moment you wonder if you'll ever forget. Events that sear themselves on your conscience. That moment was one of those for me.

A few years later their marriage imploded. She moved an hour away. He relocated to another part of the country. They divorced.

I finish with this story because life is messy. Gut wrenching. Risky. Things don't always turn out well. Sometimes they don't turn out at all. Sometimes everything falls apart and we wonder if there's any point to any of it. We're tempted to shut ourselves off, fortify the walls around our hearts, and forge ahead, promising ourselves that we will never open ourselves up like that again.

But I have to believe that we can recover from anything. I have to believe that God can put anything - anyone - back together. I have to believe that the God Jesus invites us to trust is as good as he says he is.




Full of grace.

And I have to believe that God does not run out of balloons."

I love this story....I think it can speak to us no matter what point we're at. This year's been a bit rough for me and I too have to believe that God does not run out of balloons.

I'm sure glad too!

Yours Truly,
The Kindred Spirit

"Therefore, my dear brothers (and sisters), stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord because you know that your labour in the Lord is not in vain." 1 Corinthians 15:58

Vain = Useless.
Vain = Having no meaning or likelihood of fulfillment.
In Vain = Without success or result.

We are not in vain.

The State of the Human Condition...

So today I forgot my cell phone at home and only realized it when I was halfway to school. I started to mentally panic because I didn't have time to turn around and get it. I was thinking....oh man what if I get stranded or something! Then I remembered a time not so long ago when I didn't have a cell phone and I drove around everywhere without one. A time where if you got stranded then you would just walk to someone's house and beg for some help or at least a phone call. So I pressed on to school without my cell phone and I did not get stranded. Boy things change fast!

Along the same lines as things changing fast....I just joined twitter. My Dad kept talking about joining so I joined and he still hasn't....I'll just keep nagging him until he does. So I like to tweet....hahaha! I am a facebook feen but I'm pretty clueless when it comes to Twitter...hopefully I can learn. All I know is I actually feel connected to famous people who I have never met's really quite odd and maybe a little stalkerish, but isn't that why all these internet wonders like facebook and twitter are so popular....because people long and love to be connected with each other! I think it's fun.....and I think you should join twitter if you haven't because I really don't know a lot of people on there personally and it would be nice to have some actual twitter friends!

Happy tweeting to me and you (maybe)!

I think I'm going to try to start blogging a bit more....we'll see how it goes!

Thanks to the team for all their hard work yet blessed to have great volunteers!

Love Can

I recently heard the lyrics to a song called 'Love Can' by a band called Decemberadio. It's a powerful song and one that I've been listening to a lot. Check it out...


What can move a mountain from the place where it stands?
What can calm the greatest fear with a Touch from it's Hand?
What can turn an enemy to a brother and a friend?
There is only one thing I know
Love Can
Love Can

What can bring a miracle in a moment of need?
What can reach a fallen soul and put him back on his feet?
What can say that nothing is beyond it's hands?
There is only one thing I know
Yes I know

That only love can heal your broken heart
When it's all said and done
And you've had enough
Only love can bring you off of your knees
And back on your feet

What can build a bridge between a Holy God and a sinful man?
I know there's only one thing only love can
What can help a lost soul find his way back home again?
There is only one thing I know
Yes, I know
Yes, I know

That only love can heal your broken heart
When it's all said and done
And you've had enough
Only love can bring you off of your knees
And back on your feet

Only love can move a mountain
Only love can heal the broken
Only love can move a mountain
Only love can heal the broken
Only love can move a mountain
Only love can heal the broken

Sweet Dreams,
The Kindred Spirit


It’s funny how you can think one thing
And you think this other person is on the same page as you
But really,
it’s like night and day.
And when you figure it out,
the only word that comes to mind is ‘idiot’.

Perhaps it’s the story of everyone’s life at some point.
In the moment it doesn’t seem to matter.
It doesn’t seem to matter that others can relate.
All that matters is the sinking feeling in the pit of your stomach.
Nothing can make it better and you somehow can’t escape it.
So, you let it run its course.
Eventually it passes, at least that is the hope.

It’s funny how the thing that can make you break your walls down,
can also make you build them sky high.
You build them so high and so strong,
so that pit feeling knows it’s never welcome to return.
Sometimes it doesn’t get the message.
Note to self: build higher, stronger walls.

One day when your walls are so high and so strong and you are alone,
you will wonder if building higher, stronger walls was the answer?
There might be a chance that the pit feeling was meant to be.
Could there be a lesson in the pit?
Perchance is the pit actually protection?
Why does protection have to hurt?
Too many unanswered questions.

As we grow and learn we never completely forget the pit.
Sometimes it returns in other faces,
but it’s still recognizable because we will never forget that feeling.
The feeling that laid the foundation for our walls.
And with fingers crossed you may have learned by now
that only two things break down the walls.
Love and Hope.
In all their many facets they, together can break down walls.
Or prevent you from building them in the first place.
Note to self: Resist the urge to build higher, stronger walls
or any wall at all for that matter.

Back to the 90's...

I was born in the late 80's, meaning my childhood took place in the 90's. Recently I've re-discovered my love for one christian rock group in particular....Petra. I grew up listening to these guys and I have so many wonderful memories of rocking out to them in the car with my Dad. I've been listening to one of their albums, my favourite one, entitled 'Beyond Belief' a lot lately. The words to the songs on this cd are full of amazing truths spoken or sung in a powerful way. I just wanted to share the lyrics to one of their songs with you. It's called 'Seen and Not Heard' and I hope you'll take a moment to think about what they're saying.

Seen And Not Heard

Too many black sheep in the family
Too many stones from a house of glass
They've heard the story, they've heard the lines
But talk is too cheap to change their minds
They want to see some vital signs
Convictions - in the way we live
Convictions - not a narrative
Actions speak a little louder than words

Seen and not heard, seen and not heard
Sometimes God's children should be seen and not heard
There's too much talk and not enough walk
Sometimes God's children should be seen and not heard

Delayed reaction to hostility
Brings us into reality
Cause when we answer in our defense
They can see through the false pretense
They want to see some evidence
Commitment - no more alibis
Commitment - not a compromise
Actions speak a little louder than words
Let your light so shine in all you do
With an answer near when they come to you

Don't let your mouth start talkin'
Until your feet start walkin'

Perhaps you too may want to re-discover the 80's and 90's!!!!

Yours truly,
The Kindred Spirit

It all happened at once.
It came like a freezing cold breeze on a hot day.
Laughter and tears, they both came.
Some laughed for the wait was over.
Some cried because it all seemed ridiculous.
Bitterness didn’t seem right, but it was there.
Sinicism was all too natural.
Yet it was not a bad thing.

For some, it was a reminder of loneliness.
For others it brought opportunity.
Some questioned it.
Real Love?

Some knew better.
The struggle will come.
Life goes on.
What then for you?
Is it the adventure you’ve always wanted?
For some there could be more.
It seems heavy but it won’t always be this way.

It all happened at once.
It will all be over at once.
For others, the wait is the lesson.
The lesson answers the questions.
Time, motivation, opportunity, love.
Real love will bring you.

The wait is the struggle.
The struggle must be worth it.
I trust.
I hope.
It will come.
The adventure begins here.

Sinicism must be ignored.
Bitterness fought.
Loneliness overcome.

The opportunity is the breeze.
In that the lesson,
and the struggle.
The wait won’t last forever.
Then, it will be time.
And there will be laughter.
