What I Did This Summer - Part I

Now that I am posting something, be prepared for a flood of blog posts - they're all pent up from my weeks off (okay, we'll see about that).

I'm going to ease myself back in by doing a couple of photo posts.

What have I done this summer? On about the 19th of July, some of our family went to Jasper with a couple of guys from Sri Lanka that are working in Edson:

We went to Maligne Canyon,

Mt. Edith Cavell,

(where we skipped some rocks on a glacial pool)

and Athabasca Falls

before we went to Jasper to poke around in the shops. There's never enough time in a day trip to see much in Jasper, but it was a good day. We took oodles of pictures, but I'm not going to put any more up on Blogger.

Talking to our friends from Sri Lanka made us appreciate what a land of opportunity we live in. Many places in the world are very difficult. Spending the day in Jasper always fills me with a sense of the glory of our mighty Creator. From the unique mountain birds and flowers to the mountains, glaciers and waterfalls, God's works are astonishing.

Next time, Sunnybrae on the Shuswap!

It's been over 25 years since I was in Jasper. I would like to go again sometime.

Hi Paul,

I preached a message on election and predestination yesterday. Is that a good autumn activity?
