Joy or Laughter?

Tears of JoyDo you prefer laughter or joy? Or are they the same thing? Or does one produce the other?

My post on Inscribe Writers Online shares a couple times of laughter in my life as I pray that God will continue to fill my heart with His joy.

It is called Humour in my Life.

InScribeFall ConferenceDo you like to tell humorous stories? Are you artistic? The Inscribe Fall Conference is coming up in September and I would love for you to join me there. This year it is in Wetaskawin, Alberta, just outside of Calgary. Check it out at the Fall Conference page of Inscribe.

As Autumn is fast approaching, remember in the change of season to plan creativity time into your life. Creativity can take any form from writing, drawing, playing an instrument, acting, painting, colouring, sewing or knitting, designing, crafting, photography, or any kind of activity that helps you create. Creativity helps you better process life, heal from the hard times in life, and develops God’s creative character in your daily life. Invest in your relationship with God and in caring for yourself by finding your creative streak.

Celebrating Weston

There are few things in this world that compare to the joy of being a grandmother. Though we live two provinces away so I don’t get much “gamma” time, I am thankful to live in an age of technology when I can see recent pictures and real-time video, and hear my grandson’s adorable voice.

The day before I became a grandma, I had a surgical procedure to remove cancer from my breast. Part of the procedure included needles of blue dye to locate lymph nodes. The dye eventually makes its way out of the body through urination.

20130313The next morning Weston was born, and I was recovering at home. I had just returned to bed from the washroom when my son phoned to tell us “It’s a boy!”

Now, it was probably the drugs talking, but I think my response was “Yahoo! I’m celebrating by peeing blue!”

Today Weston is three years old.

Happy birthday, precious boy. We love you.
