Palm Sunday and The Past Couple of Days

Today is Palm Sunday, the start of Holy Week. It was a beautiful Mass today. At the beginning of the service Father Lindsay had us all come to the back of the Church for the Blessing of the palms before distributing them.

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead.

1 Peter 1:3

Work has been going very well. I have been working 2 days a week for the past month now. I am working 3 days this week. I am really enjoying working at The Granary... there is always something new to learn!

My cousin Mary picked me up from work on Friday... we went out for dinner and I spent the night with her at their house in Barrhaven as her family was away for the night. It's so nice having them closeby...

We watched the film "Tangled" together... If you love all the Disney princess films you will enjoy "Tangled".

Scott finished his final exam on Friday. He came home for a few days this weekend. He will need to go back for a few days to do his music jury on April 26th. Please pray that it goes well.

Also, if you could please pray for me on Wednesday morning as I take my G2 road test.

Have a great week everyone! God bless.

Mom and Dad's Trip - Part 1

I have been wanting to tell you a bit about Mom and Dad's trip. We have been having some trouble downloading photos from the trip so for now I have pulled some online. There will be a longer trip post coming up.

Their first few days were spent in Calgary. Dad had some meetings and presentations to make.

After that they went to Victoria Island for 4 days. This is a picture of the Delta hotel where they stayed.

Spring is well underway in Victoria this time of year. There were large pots of flowers everywhere.

One of the days Mom and Dad were able to go and visit
a National Historic Site of Canada, "Butchart Gardens". Here are a few pictures I pulled from their website...

Dad surprised Mom with a ride on a float plane from Vancouver to Victoria Island. The ride took about 35 min.

I'm looking forward to sharing more pictures and details at a later date.
