O Canada!

It's been 5 years this month since we raised our right hand and affirmed our oath to be a Canadian citizen. 

Canada is a great place to live, not because we live here but we experienced, tasted and seen the beauty of this country for the past 13 years. It is truly a land of opportunity. It abounds with economic prosperity, affordable education options, excellent health care and retirement schemes, an abundance of lands. Rich in beautiful views, vast of plains, mountains, hills, lakes, forestry. Clean air and fresh water supplies, all providing for a safe environment. It's a good place to raise a child. There are no basic problems of transportation, water, gas and political disturbances. It is a peace loving country. 

We thank God that He brought us here in Canada where we enjoy every privileges and opportunities they offer. We are just blessed to be here. I love this country.

Today, Canada is celebrating it's 144 years! Happy Canada Day!

Here are some of our photos during our Oath taking 5 years ago. 

Jessica took this picture, besides she was born here and no need for her to take an oath.

God, keep our land
Glorious and free
O Canada, we stand on guard for thee
O Canada, we stand on guard for thee!
