The Lifting

Outer Banks seagull, lifted and free

A bird soaring high above the earth, lifted by the winds.

A leaf fluttering and flying, lifted by the breeze.

A massive airplane defying its weight, lifted by the wind over and under its wings.

Our spirits, when God rushes through, with His Holy Spirit wind to lift us.

The feeling and miracle of flight, the relief and freedom of forgiveness in Christ

Be blessed today. Know the love and forgiveness of Christ in your heart. Let the lifting of your spirit commence. Love, Lisa

Peace Despite

Rossbeigh Beach, County Kerry

Peace despite the raging sea, the howling wind, uncertainty

Peace despite the circumstance, the strong what-ifs, the hurt within

Peace, it comes as gentle dove, as quiet voice, as ever there

Peace His Name is Jesus Christ, the Son of God, the Risen Lamb

c2022 Lisa Lyons

May you find the peace that passes understanding, resting in the arms of a great and unchanging Savior. Blessings, Lisa

The Choice

Each day is a choice

A choice for peace or war

A choice for love or hate

A choice for smiling or scowling

A choice for laughter or crying

A choice for following Jesus or turning away

The things of this world will call out for the negative

But Jesus Christ calls out for us to follow, to choose, to focus, to love.

c2021 Lisa Lyons

Dear Lord, please help me to make the choice, every moment, for the things of You. Help me keep my eyes fixed on You. Love, Lisa

The Song

Portmagee, Ireland

Days and weeks without a song

Reticence enfolding

Thoughts swirling quickly but never formed

Outward form withholding

But birds kept singing on and on

And blue skies filled the morning

The trees broke forth in full array

The scent of flowers forming

You say if I will not sing out, the rocks will praise Your Name

I choose to sing, to praise, to say

You are my God, the Way
