I live alone with my preschooler in an off-grid cabin on a remote island off the coast of British Columbia.
"Don't wish me happiness I don't expect to be happy all the time....It's gotten beyond that somehow. Wish me courage and strength and a sense of humor. I will need them all." Anne Morrow Lindbergh

I took this picture in August back when I would be on the beach at six am to share the glory of a sunrise with my young daughter. It's cool now and dark in the mornings and instead I try to sleep a bit longer. The warmth of an early morning fire in the stove and the orange glow it casts in my kitchen beckons me like sunshine. So does the flickering lights of the sweet smelling, hand poured beeswax candles I made with my daughter. These times like the seasons are fleeting. I am reminded to make time for where my heart is. I need the time and space to follow where it is going and so I am taking a break from blogging although I will continue to post about my fundraising efforts and the homeless teens my heart goes out too. At some point I may change back to my regular posting. I thank each of you for your warmth and kindness. It is my sincere hope that in the pages of my blog your faith has become strengthened. However, difficult the way may be; "The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged." Deut. 31:8
