By Elsiewhere. Doreen caught your attention when she was doing some pre-walk stretches beside her car in Mill Lake Park. She was born in Jamaica, and moved to Abbotsford five years ago from Coquitlam. She thinks “there’s something about Abbotsford,” and she has very close friends here who encouraged her to move here.
“So, what life advice would you give to the people of Abbotsford?”
“First, I’d say, get to know Jesus Christ as your personal Saviour. Get to know your Creator.” She points skyward.
“Secondly, get to know the Word. Read your Bible.”
“Finally, give thanks and enjoy the creation. There is so much to be thankful for…nature, creation, beauty. For the freedom we enjoy in this country, for the pretty good government. So many countries in the world do not enjoy such freedoms.”
“You seem like a woman who is at peace.”
“I am. Oh, sure, there are burdens. But I give them to God and in return He gives me peace and joy. I love Him. He’s so sweet to me. He’s my Daddy.”
Wonderful to meet you at Mill Lake Park, Doreen, whose favorite colour is purple!
