Rom. 8:1 – There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.
What a positive verse! In today’s world there is so much negativity that it’s easy to get discouraged. So to see this verse and realize – hey, rejoice! We’re free. We have been forgiven. Forget the past and look forward to the future! – That’s a verse that we need to remind ourselves of. However, there is a condition to it – now that we’re forgiven, we need to walk after the Spirit. So we can’t just stay in our lazy chair and do nothing, we need to be active and walking in a way that shows the difference Christ has made in our lives. What a challenge!
The week at camp went quickly; I have one more day here, then I'll say my goodbyes to the mighty Peace country and head for home. I'd appreciate prayers for safety as I travel, and again for these Canadian fires to stop. We desperately need the air to clear up. It's so easy to take that for granted until you have to live in a constant haze.

What a week! As a teacher on a Hutterite colony for grade 5-12, life is non-stop from 9:00-3:30. This coming Friday is the end of quarter, so report cards will be due. So that always makes one extra busy.
But I had 2 highlights in this week.
The first: I came home and stumbled over something on my step. When I picked it up and entered, I found out I was holding MY copy of my book! I felt like a mother receiving her first child. The awe and wonder of holding something I'd created and labored over for - yes, about nine months- well, that is quite the feeling.
The second: Last night the doorbell rang. I answered and a man stood there with a floral arrangement. I was sure he'd come to the wrong house, but he had the right name. Imagine my amazement when I saw that friends from the States had arranged these lovely roses to be delivered to celebrate this milestone in my life. In today's Covid restrictions, such a thoughtful, kind gesture means SO much! I never get flowers, so I'm still just smiling over it.
