“Pain nourishes courage. You can’t be brave if you’ve only had wonderful things happen to you.”  ~Mary Tyler Moore

This song by Enation is something different from what you’d usually see on my blog.  But it’s a heart cry…raw, hopeful and alive.  Enjoy, Lisa

Finding Pasture


“I am the gate; whoever enters through me will be saved.  He will come in and go out, and find pasture.”    ~Jesus, John 10:9

Safety, security, forgiveness, goodness, mercy, love, light, green and white and blue and gold and beauty as far as the eye can see….that’s Jesus.  :)  Slainte, Lisa

I Will Follow


“You want to go where?!?”

“Up this mountain….come on, it’ll be grand.”

One walks, the other follows, keeping her eyes fixed on the sheep in front.  How I wish I could follow Jesus with the same kind of fixedness.  Keep my eyes on Him, follow, go, wherever He decides to lead.  Yet despite myself, He keeps me following…day by day, step by step, mountain by mountain.  And one day I’ll reach the top, with him, and it will be so worth it.  I won’t feel the pain of twisted joints from the journey, only joy that I made it with Him.  Be encouraged today, Lisa

“Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfector of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.” ~Hebrews 12:2

“Let your eyes look straight ahead, fix your gaze directly before you.  Make level paths for your feet and take only ways that are firm.  Do not swerve to the right or the left; keep your foot from evil.” ~Proverbs 4:25-27

The Light


“The Light”

The walls are rough, time has done what it does

But the Light is sure and steady

The window calls out through the hardness

Come to the Light

The Light warms and comforts and illuminates

Time cannot touch it.

When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, “I am the light of the world.  Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”  ~John 8:12

Feeling Crabby?


“I’m up….I’m up!”

Some days we just wake up on the wrong side of the bed, and feel, well….kind of like this cute little guy.  So if you’re feeling crabby this morning, check out a few moments of a real crab’s day.

"I must still be tired....or sand is in my eyes."

“I must still be tired….or sand is in my eyes.”

"That's it....back to bed, my nice little hole in the ground."

“That’s it….back to bed, my nice little hole in the ground.”

Thanks to the obliging Outer Banks crab who kindly posed for these photographs.  :)  Slainte, Lisa
