Yellow Is Not Red

Yellow and red are two very different colors. They also have two very different meanings when driving. Yellow means to slow down, take caution, proceed when safe. Red means to come to a complete and full stop.

Too many times in my life, I have come to a yellow light, a temporary roadblock, and I let it completely stop me. Something in my life that should only briefly curtail me, derails me.

Yellow is not red. Proceed when the way is clear.

As my morning inspiration, I include a video of little Timmy from Donegal Donkey Sanctuary in Ireland, which I have shared before.. He was born with two severely deformed back legs, but now, due to wonderful care and vet expertise, good hoof orthotics, and lots of God’s grace, he is four years old and doing wonderfully. Timmy didn’t let the yellows in his life derail him. He is full out green.❤

Yellow is not red. Love, Lisa

P.S. If you feel so inclined, http://www.donegaldonkeysanc.com is a wonderful place of healing and rest for neglected and abandoned donkeys. We “adopted” Timmy this year, and I know they would appreciate any help you could give them during this challenging Covid season..

I Will Fly

“The moment you doubt whether you can fly, you cease forever to be able to do it.” ~Peter Pan, J. M. Barrie

When I was three, I spent an entire summer trying to fly, and I was sure that I could.  Everyday I climbed atop my dog’s house, 3 or 4 feet off the ground, and I would close my eyes.  I would feel the wind under my arms, my body, and imagine lifting off the ground in flight.  I would jump with full expectation of lifting and staying off the ground, each time I tried.  I had, and still have, dreams of flying, wonderful dreams of weightless joy.

And I will fly one day, of that I have no doubt.  I will fly with the angels, in the Heavens in the place that Jesus has prepared for me.  No doubts, no weight, no sorrow, only effortless joy and praise.

My prayer is that God will continue to help me fly while I’m on this earth as well.  That He will give me the strength to mount up with wings of eagles as I look into His wonderful face.

Love, Lisa

Honesty can scare because there is no hiding

Words and feelings bare and exposed

Wide open

Honesty can heal if honesty is kind

Words and feelings showing care and concern

Wide open

Honesty is found in the face of Love

The One who died for us and all our words and feelings

Arms wide open

Mercy wide open

Heaven wide open

Plans and Hopes

ireland

Planning to do this or that; a list of things to come

Thinking of what could maybe be, or maybe not be

But fixing my eyes firmly on You, my maybes fade away

Into the surety of what is, what will be, what will always be

Love, hope, forgiveness, mercy, healing

My mind quiets and settles at Your feet and in Your care.
