My Song of the Day (or possibly Month)

“Takes a Little Time” Amy Grant….It takes a little time, sometime, to get your feet back on the ground….but baby, you’re not going down, you got things to think of now…so give it, give it time…

Thank you, God, for music, to get me up and moving.  Slainte, Lisa

Finding Diamonds


We will always find what we’re looking for….if we’re looking for the good, we can see it.  If we’re determined to see the worst, we will definitely find it.

“Because there’s so much good in the worst of us….

So much bad in the best of us

It never makes sense for any of us

To criticize the rest of us

We’ll just find what we’re looking for, find what we’re looking for.”

~Amy Grant, “Find What You’re Looking For”, How Mercy Looks From Here

I’m praying the Lord helps me to look for diamonds and beauty and joy today in others.  Be blessed today, Lisa

What Angels See

Amy Grant has had such a great influence in my life as a songwriter, a singer, and as a Christian.  Back in college, I heard her blaring out from a dorm neighbor’s room, and I liked it.  I didn’t listen to any Christian music back then, but I liked this.  Her music helped me to understand more of who Jesus really was, and opened me up to truth.  Hope this song from her new album How Mercy Looks from Here is encouraging to you today, “If I Could See.”  Great album.  Blessings, Lisa


Gift from Heaven


Until yesterday, it has been pretty cold around here, requiring winter coats and heavy sweaters.  But then, out of the clear blue sky, came a 70 degree day, with sun no less!  And we’re going to have another of the same today.  🙂  When one of these days come upon you in the midst of coldness, it makes you immediately want to roll down your windows in the car, turn circles in the grass with your arms outstretched, and move all activities outside, pronto!  A gift from heaven above; God saying in a very small but wonderful way, “I love you; enjoy the day.”  Better than any wrapped gift I can think of.

So excuse me, I’m going to stop blogging now, and get ready to enjoy the day.  (although I’m teaching piano today…can I roll my big piano outside?  🙂 )  Slainte, Lisa

Here’s a lovely rendition of “Count Your Blessings” by Amy Grant & CeCe Winans.  This song helps me see those “heaven gifts” a little clearer.
