What You’re Looking For


There is an old saying, “You will find what you are looking for.”  This reminds me of the time my husband and I were looking for a certain castle near the Burren.  We thought we had followed the inconspicuous signs correctly, and we pulled up in front of an impressive building full of hope and upcoming adventure.

We knocked and tried to gain access to said castle, and finally a very nice gentleman came to the door and asked if he could help us.  We asked to take a tour of the castle, and he politely told us that this was a private home.  🙂

In our minds, it was a castle, and looked like a castle.  To the man who lived there, it is his castle.  So, I guess it’s a castle.

What we look for is often what we find.  Good or bad….a lot of times it is how we choose to look at something.   Love, Lisa

P.S.  By the way, if you are reading this, and this happens to be your home….it is beautiful!  🙂

A Rocky Morning


It’s been one of those mornings….not smooth, not quiet, not problem-free.  I feel like I’m walking in the Burren area of Ireland…you pick your way carefully, rock by rock, carefully placing your feet so you don’t fall down into a crack, and eventually, you come to some smoother rocks and green grass again.  But the amazing thing about the Burren is that there are many flowers and vegetation growing in the midst of this craggy landscape.  They thrive and ornament in the midst of hardship.  I want to be like those flowers, beautiful, providing hope and joy in the midst.  Pray for me to be that, and let me know how I can pray for you today.  Blessings, Lisa
