The Lord will fulfill His purpose for me; Your love, O Lord, endures forever ~ do not abandon the works of Your hands. Psalms 138:8


This post is late...but better late than never......

I can hardly begin to tell you what a thrill it was to have Vancouver host the Olympics. I was born at VGH and have lived in the Lower Mainland all of my life. My love for Vancouver has been magnified with every glimpse of my beloved city on the TV coverage.

We spent a few days downtown during the my humble opinion, there are few places on earth more beautiful than Vancouver in the sunshine.

The air was electric with Olympic energy....the streets were crowded with happy people, families enjoying the sights and sounds, Canadian Patriots the likes of which I have never witnessed ever before.

I truly hope that the demonstration of Canadian pride will continue and grow within the hearts of all of us. I am so thankful to live a life of freedom in this "My home and native land", and I think that it's worth shouting about!

We met up with Jordan and Lindsey and Jordan took us thru the back way to see the Stanley Cup.....a thrill for every Hockey-lovin' Canadian!

Hope that spring has sprung all around you! Be blessed, my friends!

What beautiful pictures! I have wondered if you had experienced the Olympics...thanks for posting about it! My husband was intrigued by the fact that I have a blog friend in Vancouver. He has hunted there and has wanted the tow of us to go there sometime. Now I have a special reason to - to meet you! Maybe someday we will head your way!
