Celebrating Canada Day

July 1 is always a special day in our family. It’s Bethany’s birthday. Ray and I are celebrating Bethany’s birthday today with her and her sweet family. Happy Birthday, Bethany.

I’m remembering one of her birthdays many years ago when we also celebrated with our friend Benjamin, who shares Bethany’s birthday. We had a Canada Day party, complete with a Canadian flag cake.

I found this photo on Flickr. It is by Scazon
and was taken in Portland, Oregon.

As I think about Bethany’s birthday and Canada Day this year, I am also thinking about a blog reader who grew up in Canada. To my great joy, she drove to Richmond from her home in Virginia so that we could visit in person when Bethany and her family and Ray and I were at the HEAV convention a few weeks ago.

I mention my new friend because I want to ask you to pray for her and her husband. He, a non-smoker, was diagnosed with lung cancer this past December. Their faith is the astounding kind. I know they would appreciate your prayers for them and for their children. Thank you.

The effective prayer of a righteous man can accomplish much.
James 5:16

Now to Him who is able to do far more abundantly
beyond all that we ask or think,
according to the power that works within us,
to Him be the glory in the church
and in Christ Jesus to all generations forever and ever. Amen.
Ephesians 3:20-21
