In Church

1417

What is a church?  Is it four walls, beautiful stained glass, soaring organ music?  Is it people who love God, gathering together?  This church ruin in Ireland once held people, coming together to worship by the sea.  Is it not a church because the roof is gone?  Or does Jesus hold all things together by His love and grace and mercy?  Questions, questions, but He holds all the answers.  We just trust, and worship, and love, and continue on towards Him.  Slainte, Lisa

The Solid Rock

996

“On Christ the solid Rock I stand

All other ground is sinking sand…

All other ground is sinking sand.”

~Edward Mote & William Bradbury

Planting my feet firmly, knowing that Jesus has got me rooted securely and forever.  He won’t let us go; He won’t let us fall; He cares about you and me.  Blessings, Lisa

Before me, Beside me

IMG_3236

Christ be with me, Christ be within me

Christ behind me, Christ before me

Christ beside me, Christ to win me

Christ to comfort me, Christ above me

Christ in quiet, Christ in danger

Christ in hearts of all that love me

Christ in mouth of friend and stranger

– St. Patrick, Irish cleric

This Gaelic prayer is deep and beautiful.  May the love of Christ surround you today.  Blessings, Lisa

Am I Flying Yet?

Am I flying yet, or is it just really windy?  Those of you who know me, or have been reading this blog, know how much I want to fly.  Up in the sky, dipping in and out of the clouds, catching a wind current and just gliding on it.  Ahhh…  Many a great nighttime  dream I have had doing that very thing.  One good flap of the arms, and I’m up!  🙂

These pictures show Joshua and I on the ferry from Wales over to Dun Laoghaire, Ireland.  And as you can see, it was majorly WINDY!  And also as you can see, Joshua had the little boy courage to put those arms out and fly!  As for me, the only thing flying was my hair…right in my face.  haha

 

 

 

 

 

 

All I know is….there is a super cool passage about flying in 1 Thessalonians.  Check it out:

“For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first.  After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air.  And so we will be with the Lord forever.”  (1 Thess. 4:16-17)

Sure sounds like an awesome flying experience to me!  Hope to see you there.  🙂
