Judy and I both feel that we live in a special place.  Years ago God gave us a verse from Psalms that became important in our spiritual journey.  “He brought me out into a spacious place; he rescued me because he delighted in me” (18:19).  We believe Canaan’s Rest is such a place.  We praise God for his wonderful provision in providing this “spiritual space” in the northwoods.  We both sense that at this stage in our journey, that there is a voice to be heard from this place in the woods.  That is why we have started this blog-site.  It is definitely a work in progress.  Neither of us are very comfortable with the web.  But we are going to keep at it, hoping that the voice will be heard through this site.  As we move along, we will get the hang of blogging.  We hope to communicate what is in our hearts, hoping to connect with fellow pilgrims seeking a deeper relationship with Jesus.  All you who are our friends, please pray for us.  It is not something that we have choosen to do on our own.  It is out of obedience to the Lord.  We want to be a voice out of the wilderness
