My husband and I were missionary educators in the Philippines for 8 years, we are proud Canadians, and we have 3 adopted sons. Two are in their late 20’s and the 3rd is our 7-year-old grandson whom we adopted.
Favorite verse/quote: I love Psalm 39, but in particular verses 7-10
“Where can I go from your Spirit?
Where can I flee from your presence?
If I go up to the heavens, you are there;
If I make my bed in the depths, you are there.
If I rise on the wings of the dawn,
If I settle on the far side of the sea,
Even there your hand will guide me,
Your right hand will hold me fast.”
