“The moment you doubt whether you can fly, you cease forever to be able to do it.” ~Peter Pan, J. M. Barrie
When I was three, I spent an entire summer trying to fly, and I was sure that I could. Everyday I climbed atop my dog’s house, 3 or 4 feet off the ground, and I would close my eyes. I would feel the wind under my arms, my body, and imagine lifting off the ground in flight. I would jump with full expectation of lifting and staying off the ground, each time I tried. I had, and still have, dreams of flying, wonderful dreams of weightless joy.
And I will fly one day, of that I have no doubt. I will fly with the angels, in the Heavens in the place that Jesus has prepared for me. No doubts, no weight, no sorrow, only effortless joy and praise.
My prayer is that God will continue to help me fly while I’m on this earth as well. That He will give me the strength to mount up with wings of eagles as I look into His wonderful face.
“The Lord will fight for you; you need only to be still.” ~Exodus 14:14
I am praising the One who loves me and fights for me this morning. Great report from Mr. Ankle Doctor yesterday….I can begin partial weight bearing, and the healing is occurring! I give all credit to Jesus, who is always with me, through the bad and the good. Thank you also to any of you who are praying….Love to you all, Lisa
Here is a song that I recorded at home…forgive the roughness….but it expresses my heart this morning.
God uses music to speak to me in a way that touches my soul deeply. This song spoke to me this morning, and I hope it encourages you as well. Be blessed, be happy, be close to those who love you and you love back. And that includes the One who made you; He loves you most of all. Slainte, Lisa
Amy Grant has had such a great influence in my life as a songwriter, a singer, and as a Christian. Back in college, I heard her blaring out from a dorm neighbor’s room, and I liked it. I didn’t listen to any Christian music back then, but I liked this. Her music helped me to understand more of who Jesus really was, and opened me up to truth. Hope this song from her new album HowMercy Looks from Here is encouraging to you today, “If I Could See.” Great album. Blessings, Lisa
