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

A Warm Autumn Day

141112-102327141112-102154

I’m late, but not really….the post can wait, the weather couldn’t.  🙂  We had to take advantage of the warm autumn air while we have it.  Warm sun, crunchy leaves, perfect blue sky, breeze that lifts your hair and takes it on a little trip….what could be better in November?  Thanking God; He is so good.  Blessings for your day, and praying you’ve had a great one.   Lisa

September….Where Did You Go?

998 Is it just me, or is time zooming by at the speed of light?  Sometimes I feel like I have stumbled into a time machine unbeknownst, and have zoomed far into the future.  🙂  Yes, it’s October, and the challenge?  To try to savor each moment of each day that God has granted me here in this month.  To enjoy more, to be aware more, to love more, to not miss the blessings as they come.  Pray for me, and I will pray for you.  Slainte, Lisa

Mountain in Song

Killarney Lake

“Shout for joy, O heavens; rejoice, O earth;  burst into song, O mountains!  For the Lord comforts his people and will have compassion.”  ~Isaiah 49:13

What is singing in your corner of the world this morning?  Maybe the tree that is using red, orange, and yellow as his notes of song.  Maybe the green grass under your feet is shouting, “Glorious day!”  Maybe the sky and the clouds are playing with blues and whites and grays, creating a beautiful artwork of this very moment.  Go ahead and add to their beauty with a song or big shout of your own!   Slainte, Lisa
