As well as acting, we have been involved this fall with a new venture - a homeschool choir. I direct the Junior Choir which has my oldest three in it. We had two Christmas performances recently, the first not all the choir members were able to attend but those that did, did a great job!

Later, the full choir was able to perform. There are 25 members.

Dr. Luke's Book

Several of our family were involved in a church play recently - it was called Dr. Luke's Book and followed Luke as he decides to write his gospel and does early research. The play was written by me, the role of Luke was taken by David, his daughter Evie by our Emmi, and Tim and Ben appeared as shepherds!

We also had a real baby in our play - a six day old baby girl took the part of Baby Jesus. I think she stole the show!

Luke and Theophilus converse with Luke's daughters looking on:

Blessed Be the Name of the Lord

Last week, David was returning from his great-aunt's funeral (in Oshawa) when he was involved in a car accident (he was not at fault). He suffered just minor bruising, but the car was totalled. It was a difficult day: the funeral, the accident, the reporting of the accident, the line-ups at the collision centre, talking to insurance agents, trying to get home, lining up at the rental car place, the traffic on the way home....

However, at the end of the day, he was able to tell us how good the Lord is. We are thankful, of course, that he was not injured, or worse. And we have seen blessings of the accident too. Tim has been wondering what God was trying to teach us. Emily was able to encourage David by reminding him our treasures are in heaven. And David says he was filled with a sense of the provision of the Lord while he was waiting for the tow-truck to arrive.

Blessed be the name of the Lord!
