With One Word

 

jesus

Storms of chaos, fears, disability, anger, helplessness

Waves larger and larger till you feel that you will drown

But there is One who can walk right over those huge waves

With one Word, “Peace,” they are gone

Calmness and peace and stillness and smooth water

All around

 

Cling on to that promise.  Slainte,  Lisa

If Timmy Can Do It…

There is a little donkey in Donegal who has stolen my heart.  Timmy was born this year at the Donegal Donkey Sanctuary with severe tendon problems in his back legs.  Why has he so captivated me?  I recently had my third surgery on my ankle to fix a an ongoing problem.  Timmy is improving, and as I watch him go, he encourages me to not give up and to keep going.  God bless animals for their uncomplaining spirits.  Blessings to you also on your journey.  Lisa

A Rose in Autumn

Autumn-Rose.jpg

Standing as tall as she can

She stretches her neck towards the sun

Petals showing their age but still retaining color of blushes

Lightly lined and becoming dry

She is happy to be there, in the garden, in the sun, in the green

Feeling the touch of the wind and the rain on her skin

Still alive and lovely and glad to be
