This is a reprint of an older blog about Fungi, the amazing Dingle dolphin. I saw a beautiful video of him today that I had to share with you. He has lived 30 years in Dingle Bay now, and he’s so friendly. Please take the time to watch…he will make you wonder all over again at the marvel of God’s creations. Slainte, Lisa
“One can never consent to creep when one feels an impulse to soar.” -Helen Keller
I have days when I just go through the motions: get up, make breakfast, walk the dog, etc. I don’t see the small beautiful things that God is putting all around me to show me that He’s there, that He cares, that He loves me. But some days, I wake up and I still do all those things, but by the grace of God, He somehow awakens me to those small wonders. I feel the impulse to soar. I have that sense that God is right there beside me and that He will help me to be more like Him, little by little. We are made in the image of God, and a little of His awesome creativity has been put into each of us.
As I have gotten older, I am slowly learning not to really trust my ups and downs of emotions (this is extremely hard for me). But still, it is an amazing feeling when I do feel and sense God’s reality, that there is more to life than what I see right in front of me. And that reality is that if I love and trust Him, I will soar and fly and have strength for the road ahead.
“But those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.” (Isaiah 40:31)
