Focus on Canada

From coast to coast, there are thousands of new Canadians on July 1st. I am one of them. For this, we are filled with gratitude and proud to be Canadian citizens.

“Each year on Canada Day, thousands of immigrants across Canada join together by becoming Canada’s newest citizens. I invite you to come celebrate being and becoming Canadian by witnessing one of these emotional celebrations and then to join us in welcoming our newest citizens this Canada Day.”

– The Honourable Ahmed Hussen, Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship

These are some of the memorable events celebrating Canada Day.


Focus for Today
July 1, 2018
Adversity can lead to growth.
Toute contrariété est une occasion de croissance.
Ogni contrarietà è occasione di crescita.

“Jesus said that we have to accept sufferings the way He welcomed them.  He wants you to ‘take up’ your cross, not to hate it, not to disown it; He doesn’t want you to reject it or drag it along.  You must love it.  God makes it light for you. You feel that you can carry it and you can even smile in spite of your tears.  There is a force in you that is not from you, it comes from Him.”

(Words to Live By)

And celebrate Canada!

Please share your reflection. Thank you.
