Trip to Banff


Right before the 31 day blog challenge ( you can find the posts here ), I went on a trip to Banff, Canada.  You might recall from the posts I did here and here that I had a milestone birthday this year.  My big present was the trip and we went the end of September.  We checked the average temperatures, the rain possibilities, our calendar and chose to go in September.  The temps were to be in the upper 60’s — well, it was COLD and snowing and 40’s/ 50’s —- brrrrrrrr but, I still loved it.

Here’s a little of my trip:


Our home away from home


The town of Banff:  How would you like to look at that every day?!







No photoshop — really that color and more vivid, pinky promise : )


Glaciers. Picture is whited out on top because it was snowing.


Honey Do contemplating his existence.


Lake Louise with the glacier in the background


Moraine Lake: Yes, that blue.  The color has to do with the amount of rock flour in the water.



Last day in the mountains




“Before the mountains were born or you brought forth the earth and the world, from everlasting to everlasting you are God.”  Psalm 90:2  NIV Bible

Things I Learned in September


September has 30 days, right?  ‘Cause the month felt like 10 days tops!

Today, I’m joining in a link party sponsored by Emily about things I’ve learned in September.

1. This month, I’ve been on a HUGE learning curve on how to run an online bible study ministry.   Sweeter Than Honey Ministry took off and the response online and locally has been blessedly wonderful.   God has been so good!

2.  Tied into #1 and this blog moving to a new dot com site on Tuesday, I discovered I’m not as computer illiterate as I originally thought.  I was allowing my past failures with computer programming from 30 years ago influence my approach and attitude about the computer.  A small victory achieved by altering my perception and attitude.

3.  Making videos with my daughter was a blast in preparation for my 31 Day October Challenge —- Southern:  A Way of Life  31 Conversations — Mother and Daughter 

4. Banff,, Alberta, Canada is really cold in September but absolutely breathtaking! 

What did YOU learn in September?



“I lift up my eyes to the mountains–where does my help come from? 
My help comes from the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth.” 
Psalm 121:1,2  NIV Bible
