Find That Child

running.jpg

People are more than what they do

The car they drive, the kind of shoe

People are more than what you see

The soul inside that yearns to be

Free as a child, running wildly through the grasses

Tumbling madly into the waters

Knowing that they can do it all again and again and again

With no agenda, no worries, no difficulties

Look deeper, if you can, into their eyes and find that child

And give it freedom to come out awhile.

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

There Once

There once was a house, all red white and lovely

The people within living life day to day

There once were some sheep, all white round and fluffy

Who dined on the richness and greenness all day

There once is a God, all knowing and powerful

Who made all within and without

The first and the last, beginning and end

The One who holds all the people and houses and sheep

Out of love

The Mysteries of God

Cloud or mountain….tree or church….the mysteries of God are everywhere

The things we know….or think we know…..are nothing next to what He holds

We can only stand and gaze and wonder….and one day see
