Happy Canada Day!

-Bower Ponds Fireworks. Red Deer, Alberta, Canada.-

And, yet another wonderful Canada Day. Only this time we were lucky enough to be on home soil. This year we are fortunate enough to take a different spin on the typical Canada Day post. Instead of 'the 5 things we'd be most happy to return to' (2007 & 2008), we'll be posting on the...

'The Top 5 Things We're Happy to Have'
(not in any particular order)

  1. Family: We're SO happy to be home and be around family again. And, although we don't see them all as much as we would like we're happy to have holidays together and be on the same side of the globe again.

  2. Nature: Even after witnessing a tornado touch down in front of me this week we're still ecstatic to be home and reveling in the wide open spaces, enjoying the rain showers and soaking up the fresh air.

  3. Communication: It's so refreshing to be able to speak the same language as the people that surround us on a day to day basis. We do greatly miss Korea and the inevitable learning curve that comes with living there but for now we are enjoying simple pleasures such as asking for directions or listening to the news.

  4. Life Direction: Trev has recently been blessed with the opportunity to attend the university he wants to, in the program of his choice and has been granted two years towards this second degree! It is wonderful to know where we will be heading and to once again have a place to put down roots (only if it is for a few years).

  5. Love: In returning home it is nice to have at least two constants in life: God's love & provision and each other. I know it sounds sappy but without the first of these, we'd be hopeless and without the later, we'd be out one best friend. It's great to know that God loves us the same in Canada as he did in Korea. And, it's also marvelous to have someone to share life's experiences with.
