Daily Photo: April 2 - 8, 2019

April 2, 2019 -- If you look closely at this picture you will see the lunch container is labeled "Rachel" on the lid and "Sam" on the container itself. So who was supposed to take this for lunch?!?!?!

April 3, 2019 -- My intended Readathon TBR.

April 4, 2019 -- After an incredibly busy day I was so grateful to crawl into bed with a good book and some lemonade.

April 5, 2019 -- Our church hosted an event called "Beyond Binaries: Creating an Affirming Church." It was the impetus of, and mostly organized by, a Grade 12 youth in our church who I have known since they were born. I spent quite a few hours volunteering in the kitchen this day and Sam and Rachel rolled all this cutlery into these colourful napkins.

April 6, 2019 -- The worship space for Beyond Binaries was gorgeous. I was so proud of the youth behind this event and all of the work they put into this day.

April 7, 2019 -- We set up our trampoline this day. I think Rachel would live out there now if she could!

April 8, 2019 -- Last week snow, this week green. Our spring is CRAZY this year!


  1. That was so nice of you to volunteer. I hope they appreciate you.

  2. That is amazing what your church did - I wish more churches focused on loving everyone and left everything else out of the equation. And I LOVE Rachel's freckles!! I don't think I've ever noticed how many she has. Drew has a few and Brent and I both love them on her little nose. :)

  3. So interesting that your church event was led by young adults. Their views on gender and sexuality seem to be so different than other generations. I'm curious to learn more!
    (And Rachel's freckles--so cute.)

  4. I really appreciate that your church does that event! My brother was always involved in the (catholic) church, sat on the national board for St. Vincent de Paul, accompanied teens to world youth days in multiple years.... and it led to him delaying coming out as gay because he felt like it was wrong for so many years. Now he has stopped going to church because he doesn't feel like he belongs there anymore and it's heart breaking that he feels that way. So thank you for supporting such an event. I'm glad you create a space where everyone feels welcome!

    1. I'm so sorry to hear about your brother's experience. It makes me so sad that the church (in general) alienates people. That is not what Jesus came to do :( And I still want to write about this event because it was soooo powerful.


Thank you for being interested in my life as I blog it and for leaving a comment. Comments make me happier than reading a good book and drinking a cold Coke. Almost :)
