B.C. Day

Bless the Lord...O my soul...and forget not all his benefits.
Psalm 103:2

We are celebrating B.C. Day in our province this weekend...and so I am reminded again of all the 'benefits' that our mine to enjoy in this beautiful province. I will be spending the provincial holiday in our province's capital ...Victoria...which happens to be the most British city in North America. What a privilege it is to live in British Columbia...there is no place like it!

Emblems of B.C.

  • Bird ~ Stellar Jay
  • Flower ~ Dogwood
  • Flag ~ the sun, the waves and a reminder of our colonial past.

Sunday blessings...


  1. I can't think of a more perfect day to go to Victoria. Have a wonderful sunday.

  2. We'll be celebrating late with you on Tuesday enjoying your world :0)

  3. Happy BC Day! Have fun in Victoria...will you have tea at the Empress Hotel?

  4. Definitely a place I would love to visit someday. I do appreciate your patriotism. Beautiful verse that you shared also.

  5. I just caught up with your blog, Judy - I'd missed quite a few with all that was happening here. I enjoyed all that you'd written in the days I'd missed. Thank you for sharing about your mom, your honeymoon (happy Anniversary!) and the way you are trying to keep cool. Have a wonderful holiday. I'm looking forward to one of those cool treats with you when you get home.

  6. I didn't know that the stellar blue jay was our bird. No wonder I've seen them in our yard quite often. Have a wonderful day, Judy!

  7. Your wonderfulB.C. patriotism shines in this post, Judy. I hope you are enjoying your vacation!

  8. Growing up in Victoria, BC Day was always a celebration. It was a beautiful place to grow up and also to visit now. Enjoyed your patriotism in this post. Have fun on the Island. Kathy

  9. Hope you had a good time in Victoria.
    That was certainly some reunion, musthave taken forever to say goodbye!
    Some heatwave too. The cooling drinks looked good though.
    Send some heat over here (but not too much) as we are having relentless rain and cool.
    Your header shrub is gorgious, makes mine look puny.
