Ben Bulben, close by
Ben Bulben, just a few moments later and few hundred feet down the road
Sometimes when we are too close to something, it loses all perspective.
Clouded, muddy, overwhelming.
Distance and time usually help.
Taking a step back, or two or ten.
Waiting for a day or a year.
The clouds will pass, and the beauty of the mountain revealed.
“I wait for the Lord, my soul waits, and in His word I put my hope. My soul waits for the Lord more than watchmen wait for the morning.” – Psalm 130:6
Hanging heavy in the sky above
The dense white cloud gives up its rain gently, effortlessly
Falling upon the earth in a mist, in softness
Barely touching the skin like a blanket of water and air
Sky and earth together
OK, Honey….I’ve found our house! 🙂 Perfect land, view; we just need a roof, bigger walls, electricity, plumbing…..no worries. We could be settled in no time. 😉
Beautiful County Sligo, near Drumcliffe.
Hard times or withstanding time?
Pain or overcoming?
Ruin or beauty?
I see both.
May the raindrops fall lightly on your brow.
May the soft winds freshen your spirit.
May the sunshine brighten your heart
May the burdens of the day rest lightly upon you.
And may God enfold you in the mantle of His love.
Have a wonderful St. Patrick’s Day! Slainte, Lisa
