Where You Breathe the Best

Near Slea Head, Dingle, Ireland

I thought it would be fun today to find out where all of you dream/breathe the best. The place you travel to in your imagination. The place you would go to right now if there was no COVID in the world. It might be where you are right now, or it might be somewhere far away. Somewhere you have been, or somewhere you would love to go.

Let’s all travel together today virtually.

Ready….set…..write! 🙂 Love, Lisa

P.S. I did not say my place, as I know you guys already know! heehee 🙂

Writing Standstill

I am working on a novel. Yes, I said it out loud. A little scary to actually commit it into writing. 🙂

But I have hit a roadblock in the plot. Not sure where the characters are going next and what should happen.

So….I haven’t been writing at all, which makes me feel like I am wasting precious time. We only have so many hours on this earth.

The more I think about it though…..isn’t that how we live life? We move ahead, living our lives, sometimes without a clear plan or path. That is why the Bible is so very precious to me….it gives me direction and a path to follow when I have no clue. And it gives the right direction and path, every time.

I am thinking I just need to start again….begin writing and see where it goes. There are always the cut and delete options. My poor characters have stayed still long enough.

Advice is always welcome from any of you readers who are writers…..how do you move past a standstill in your creative process?

Write well, live well, love well. Love, Lisa

Instead

This world likes to scare us. But God has not given us a spirit of fear, but He has given us power, love, and a sound mind. I thought I would find some of my very favorite journey photos my husband and I have taken over the years to try and replace the fear with the good God things this morning. Have fun thinking of your good God things this morning also. Love, Lisa

God’s creatures, sheep, pets, wooly caterpillars. These wooly sheep were on Valentia Island, Co. Kerry.

These Things

I have a very special guest blogger today….our fourteen year old daughter, Amy. Here is her beautiful poem. Enjoy.

A crystal, clear as water, fine as granulated sand…pure
Think about these things


Wind blowing softly through the pines, at the highest peak on the mountain
Think about these things


Waves crashing against majestic cliffs amidst a rising sun
Think about these things


Rain pattering gently onto the grass helping to nurture and tame
While the sun’s rays pull every blade higher and higher out of its secure underground
home
Think about these things


Think about what is worthy to be praised
The Lord should give us you every reason to feel a little dazed


For the Lamb is our love and our light
If He is in us, than we shall shine bright

Let us share these things with others
So that they may tell all their sisters and brothers


Rejoice in His name
And His blessings you will obtain


If anything is good or excellent, commendable or pure
Think about these things
