As I look back now on my time living in Canada, I can appreciate it much more now than I ever did while I was there. I wonder now if part of the reason I had such a hard time was simply due to the 180 degree life change I took after Honor Academy graduation. I resisted a lot of the change, particularly after we came back from the honeymoon and winter was in full swing. But I can look back now at pictures like this one, and my heart swells with joy at the memories Rob and I made.
This picture I kept as my phone background the entire time I lived there. I took it in the fall, before the wedding and before it got too cold. It served as a reminder of God's love and faithfulness, and His overwhelming peace.
