Pull Up the Drawbridge….More Rain Coming

A throw-back photo from Cahir Castle, when my son was a little man of seven, circa 2001.  995

Sure wish we had a strong drawbridge about now, or an ark would do fine also.  Multitudinous amounts of rain forecast here over the next few days.

Stay safe and dry in your castle.  Slainte, Lisa

C.S. Lewis


“Imagine yourself as a living house.  God comes in to rebuild that house.  You thought you were going to be remade into a decent little cottage, but He is building a palace.”

“Isn’t it funny how day by day nothing changes,  but when you look back, everything is different…”

“He loved us not because we were lovable, but because He is love.”

“Courage, dear heart.”

Wise words from a wonderful writer to start my mind and heart this morning.  Have a blessed day, Lisa

What’s Around the Corner?


None of us know what’s around the corner until we step forward and keep going.  Good or bad, it’s our life and life is full of learning.  As we travel through, around, beneath, and atop, we will discover many things.  Beauty, joy, and peace are the things my soul longs for. God has placed these things in the smallest of leaves, the intricacy of cloud formations in the sky, the amazingness of rocks that somehow hold together for hundreds of years.  His love for me is written in the sky, and in the earth He created, and on His hands and feet.  I just have to remember to keep looking.  I would love to hear from you how you see and hear God the best.   Slainte, Lisa

Thinking in a Castle

Thinking thoughts that only a two year old can…and only a two year old knows.  🙂  Enjoy thinking your thoughts today.  Dream of beauty, joy, peace, God, love, laughter.  Good things.   Slainte, Lisa

“Whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable, if anything is excellent or praiseworthy, think about such things.” ~Philippians 4:8
