Today I wanted to bring you some fun resources – there’s nothing really tying all this together, except my prayer that they will brighten your day.

First, I hope you had the chance to watch the outstanding “Stronger Together/Tous Ensemble” special last night, which gathered Canadian celebrities and musicians in fundraising for Food Banks Canada and thanking frontline workers. If not, it is well worth your time an attention. It runs about 1.5hrs in length and is absolutely packed with the best of Canadian talent. (Make sure you have tissues nearby! I basically ugly cried through the entire thing – so proud to be Canadian, and so touched by the whole thing!)

This song by country singer Thomas Rhett (features Reba McEntire, Hillary Scott, Chris Tomlin & Keith Urban) that expresses what I feel the call is to every Christian in the midst of these days:

This colouring sheet by illustratedministry.com – why not print it, colour it, and share it with someone who could use a bit of a lift?

This reminder that as strange as these days continue to feel, there is some normalcy about it, and real reason to give thanks:

Be encouraged and seek the beauty that is all around us. Hold on, the awful will pass.

And finally, this short and effective prayer for us all today which comes from the Psalms:

Until tomorrow, dear friends, put your hope in the Lord and know his love never fails and He is with you.
