Musings on a Bird

DSCN2710

To sing in the morning

To fly with my wings

To land where I wish

And see wonderful things

But to shiver in the damp

And to search for my food

To lose my home in the gusts

And my child in the wood

Better to think of the things that I’ve got

Than to yearn for the things that I’ve not

‘Tis the season…..the season for warmth on your skin, the season for salt in your hair, the season for cool waters surrounding and supporting you, the season for closing your eyes for a moment and just breathing…..wonderful summer.  🙂  Whatever you do this weekend, I pray that you feel those amazing small blessings in some way.  Gifts from God; little whispers that let you know He’s always there with you.  Slainte, 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

A Prayer to Say Thank You

heartsand

We cry, we hope, we call out to God to help.  Sometimes the help is quick, but sometimes we don’t hear the answer that we think is best.  And sometimes the answer to our prayers comes rushing in like a wave of hope, lifting us up with overwhelming love for God.  And that’s how I am today….overwhelmed, thankful, grateful, loving God so much for His provision and lovingkindness.  Thank you, God.  “Praise the Lord!  For he has heard my cry for mercy.  The Lord is my strength and shield.  I trust him with all my heart.  He helps me, and my heart is filled with joy.  I burst out in songs of thanksgiving.”  ~Psalm 28:6-7  Blessings, Lisa

Whatever you’re going through today, don’t give up.  Keep talking to Jesus; He is listening with His whole heart.

Finnegan’s Snow Day

Being 3 months old, being a puppy, having your whole world turn snowy overnight…Finnegan having an awesome day!  Hope your day ahead is full of adventure and new things.  Slainte, Lisa

Having scaled the snowy mountain, Finnegan holds fast, legs braced.

"I know that grass is down here somewhere!"  Finnegan digs in vain.

Finnegan surrenders to the comforts of a warm couch and a nap.
