Lord, help me be here, now, present.
Lord, give me a heart that sees, feels, acts.
Lord, give me strength, determination, courage.
Lord, be here with me now, present.
You are my heart, my strength, my courage.
You are my here and now.

God’s love for us is written in the skies all the time. Look up.
Here are just a few of our love letters in the skies above our mountain in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia.
Happy Valentine’s Day! Love, Lisa

Counting my blessings this morning.
Husband, Mom, family, who never stop loving and helping.
Friends that give rides and cards and hugs.
Boots that help me walk better.
Music that gets me going.
God who never leaves me or forsakes me.
So very thankful for so many blessings. If you recognize yourself in this list, please know that I appreciate you and love you all so very much.
And if you are helping someone in your life who is having a hard time, (and aren’t we all, in some way or another?) know that you are appreciated. You are helping to keep them going.

If you haven’t heard Benny Andersson play the piano, you are missing something wonderful. He is the Swedish composer behind ABBA, Chess, Mamma Mia!, and Kristina fran Duvemala.
Piano, was released in 2017, and is on near constant repeat in my house and in my car. Melodies and piano, simple and complex all at the same time. Sparkling, brooding, hopeful, full of room for the imagination to run wild. Music that makes me want to sit down and play the piano immediately.
Do yourself a favor and get a copy. Enjoy, and have a wonderful, blessed weekend.
