A Blessing


 “Now may the Lord of peace himself give you peace at all times and in every way. The Lord be with all of you.”

~2 Thessalonians 3:16

Love to all my blog readers; I appreciate you all so much.  When I first started this blog a few years ago, I wasn’t sure how long I would keep it up.  But it has been such a blessing to me in my life, and the comments and encouragement from all of you have helped me through a lot of challenging days.  So….big love and hugs to you across our computer screens.  🙂  Love, Lisa

A Bad Case of Pollitis

polltakerThis is it…I have discovered a have a particularly virulent form of the dreaded disease of pollitis. What is “pollitis”, you may ask? Quite simply, it is the need to publish and collect data on polls, but then NEVER posting the results for the blog readers. The polls just disappear into thin air, as if they never existed. The sufferer of pollitis feels more and more compelled to publish new polls, to see how their readers feel about all manner of things, and the cycle of the disease continues.

So today, I am making a big step in my recovery. I will officially reveal all the results of the past polls (at least the ones that I remember in my advanced stages of this disease). So read them if you are interested, ignore them if they are boring, but feel good that you are helping a pollitis victim recover. 😉 Slainte, Lisa
Postscript: In putting these up, I have discovered yet another facet of the disease…I do not know how to publish just the results. So unfortunately you must click on “view results.” Your workload has been added to, and for that, I am sorry. 🙂

There are more, but it is too embarrassing to continue….

Blowing Out the Candle

Tomorrow is this blog’s first birthday…a whole year old!  🙂  When it started, I wasn’t sure how it was going to go….it was all so new.  Like a newborn, I marveled at the process and delighted in the newness.  As time progressed, the blog has been learning to sit up, crawl, and now is beginning to walk.  And with time, the blog is changing, as we all change through life.  It will be interesting to see where it is this time next year when it reaches the “terrible two’s.”  haha  Thank you for sharing this first year with me, for the supportive comments, the love, and the likes.  My wish on the candle?  For blessings for you and your families, and for you to know without a shadow of a doubt how much God loves you.  Slainte, Lisa

Being on a Break

A sheep on a break

Taking a break from blogging is nice sometimes, just to give your brain a rest for a few days.  But coming back from the blog break is hard.  That first blog back…what to say, what picture to use, how to be somewhat witty again.  It’s like my brain got stuffed with turkey along with the rest of me.  So this is what you have….the official first blog back from the break is a blog about coming back from a break.  Brilliant.  🙂

Hope all of you are recovering nicely from your Thanksgiving holidays, and getting back into the day-to-day with as much ease as possible.  Or maybe just kick back in your chair like this sheep here and try again tomorrow.  🙂    Slainte, Lisa

It’s Only Us

“There is much satisfaction in work well done; praise is sweet, but there can be no happiness equal to the joy of finding a heart that understands.”  – Victor Robinson

I’m reflective this morning.  (uh-oh)  Writing all that stuff yesterday in the blogathon has done that to me, and now to you.  Blogging has an amazing side effect that is wonderful…it helps all of us to see that we’re not so different as we think we are.  We are all created humans that are loved by an amazing God, and we all think and move and breathe and dream and hope.  So this post is just a thank you, to all of you whose blogs inspire me and challenge me and help me to see that we can try to understand each other, because we’re all in this ship together.  And if we cling onto the Captain, we can try to love each other just a fraction of how much He loves us.  And that would be a whole lot.  Slainte, Lisa
