Downtown Toronto…

The good part about going back into the office to work is seeing familiar Toronto downtown sights. Often time in the past while commuting to work in the mornings or returning home in the evenings I have rarely bothered to take in the sights. Today while getting into work I stopped and paused and took out my phone to take a few pictures. I said ‘thank you Lord’ and I made a conscious effort to marvel at the beautiful sights of the City that I have grown to call home. I did the same while returning home, not bothered by the few commuters who glanced my way while eagerly scuttling home. I now have a new appreciation for my City that was mostly shuttered and ghosted in the past two years.


Hebrew 11:10 - For he was looking for the city which has foundations, whose architect and builder is God.




Christmas trees…

Walk around the city this time of the year, and you will come across Christmas trees of all shapes, colours, sizes and themes. The malls vie with each other to have Christmas trees that are either the largest or tallest or most unique, such as the Swarovski tree with its crystal baubles, the tallest Christmas tree, the all silver decorated tree, and the poinsettia Christmas tree, which is by far my favourite of them all! Nothing puts a greater spell on the magic of Christmas quite like a Christmas tree.




Isaiah 9:6-7

For to Us a Child is born, to us a Son is given; and the government shall be upon His shoulder, and His name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
