A bit foggy this morning. A great morning for a little drive and some church! A good service always makes things clearer!

Nothing wrong with this bridge! Looks safe to me lol. Out for a hike and some pizza at the Old Garage today and came across this bridge in Chesley which is literally falling apart.

Grey, rainy day but this guy decided to bloom. Reminds me that I can wait until all the factors are right (never), or I can bloom where I am with what I have. Even though it is rainy, it is a good day to get some house work done and do some research to improve my skills. And go for a walk in the rain. Hope you have a great day!

My Great-Grandfather's tool chest. I feel so blessed to have it. It held his tools and after, my Grandfather's tools. It connects me with my past; with those who came before me who made things with their hands, with hammer and plane, handsaw and auger. I love making things. God gave me these hands with the ability, and desire, to create. If I remember where this gift comes from, I can create so much more than just things. I can create relationships, connections where I can show the love and hope I have found in Jesus. And that is much more valuable than things. I hope you have a wonderful day and that you are able to use your talents to create some happiness.

Time to tidy up some things and get some small jobs done. I really like getting some of these small things out of the way so they aren't nagging me in the back of my mind. It is always a good feeling to finish. What could you get done today and cleared off of your to-do list? Have a great day!

It's a beauty evening to a great day. Some time on the water, a few fish to catch, a walk in the sunshine, and fun with the kids. I am blessed!

Peeking into the puddles... Cleansing rain today. Just the sound refreshes me. Time for some relaxation and sorting of life's trials. It really helps me when I purposely take time to stop...and think through what is happening in my life. I sort through the muck in my own mind and to the best of my understanding and then, 'a wise man seeks council.' I seek wisdom from God, from my wise wife (I married way over my pay grade guys), and from my mentors and friends. I hope you can take time to stop for yourself and then on big decisions, seek council. Have a great day!

Here we are again, another Monday morning. I tend to treat every day the same so Monday's and Friday's don't mean that much to me but it still feels like the start of the week, a new beginning. To me, this isn't a day to dread, Monday is a new opportunity to be the best that I can be today. To do that I get up early and take some time to refocus my mind and my priorities by praying and studying the Word. The things of last week are over, time to focus on today and make the most of it. What are you focusing on today or this week? Let me know!

I love watching the sun come up every morning. Each sunrise is a new day, an opportunity to make that day great. What happened yesterday is over, now it is time to concentrate on the day to come. I need to remember to look forward and not lament the past. Thank goodness Jesus didn't keep score of my past mistakes and accepted me as I was. Now it is my responsibility to get better every day. I still mess up, but I am learning to look forward, especially when things don't turn out as I expected. Take care of today.

Had a beautiful visit yesterday in #Chesley #greybruce known as “The Nicest Town Around." They have a great easy to walk Heritage Trail that goes all around the town to some very picturesque spots. I totally recommend a visit this summer without or without the bridge repair. Just drive around, park, take photos and explore - there's a grocery store right downtown to grab some food for a picnic also - a community Park for families with outdoor seasonal swimming and splash pools, a skateboard park, boat launch, picnic pavilion, and plenty of places to use that fishing pole. There's even a paved boardwalk for easy walking next to the river / putting a canoe or kayak in. ;) #beautifulnight #exploreON #brucecounty #sushinight #summer2018☀️

Spent day with former Mayor Ron Oswald visiting businesses in Chesley.

Bridge is having a significant impact - significant loss to business with high school students not downtown at lunch and after school.

Lacking business support from all 3 levels of government. We need to change that
