Looking through God's eyes!

The Carlisle Citadel

This week I (Eileen) am in Carlisle, England for a three day workshop.  The first day was great with a lot to think about and put into action!  I clearly now have to get into gear though.  This evening I am sitting here thinking of the list of things I need to be processing tonight for the sessions tomorrow and finding all the answers to the questions we have agreed to do over night.  It is amazing how some of these questions make you think.

One of the things we have been looking at is Numbers 13 & 14;  here is the statement they give.....
You are one of the children of Israel standing at the edge of the promised Land. That land of plenty you have heard about from your parents and grandparent. You are so close to your destiny.  You can see it, smell it, almost touch it.  You have walked for days through the desert to get here. You've even tasted the delicious grapes brought back by the spies. Suddenly you realise you will never get to the Land.  As a result of the report from the spies you have given up you enabling belief and taken on a limiting belief.  Why has this happened.

It made me think, clearly the answer is relatively obvious; The report from the spies was negative speaking of the people of the land.   Trying to process the question on a deeper level and thinking that there must be something more.  The word is amazingly simple and appears to be a single small statement.  We looked like grasshoppers in our own eyes, and we looked the same to them!   It is the perception they have of themselves and there fear to of these people that cause their answer.  They are not looking at the land and it's people's through God's eyes.

I don't know what the correct answer is to the question they ask but I know that i will try to maintain the thought of looking through God's eyes.  I want to see the amazing in each day and the beauty of things around me.  My struggles are small when looking at them from above!

Friends 4 Dinner

During the Christmas season we had the privilege of hosting some Moroccan students for a Christmas meal.  It was a fun event for all of us.  We are already looking forward to the next time we can have them over!!

Eden is driving!!!

Well, I guess it had to happen eventually.  Eden is our first child to be on the road!!  Ottawa has less public transport than London did so Eden is pretty excited to be working towards her license.  She asks to drive at every opportunity!!  She is learning well and doing a good job.  She is looking forward to getting her full license and it will be nice for us to have another taxi driver in the house!!
