A New Day


A new morning begins.  Another chance to live, to love, to breathe, to be.

A new morning to be cleansed, as if standing beneath Glencar waterfall.

Be encouraged.  We have a new day.

“Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed,

for his compassions never fail.

They are new every morning;

Great is Your faithfulness.”  – Lamentations 3:22-23

Love, Lisa

Talking About Pain


Talking about pain is a funny thing.  Some days I want to ignore it, and try to act like I used to.  I push through, laugh, pretend, and then collapse in my trusty recliner a few hours or a few minutes later.

Other days, I need to talk.  I need to let it out, to vent, to cry, to have someone tell me that it’s going to be alright, to let the volcano erupt a bit.  And then rest, and pray, and just be.

The thing I am most grateful for is for my family and my friends who are there for me, whether I’m talking about it, or not.  The people who love me irregardless of how far I can walk, or how grumpy I may be acting that day.  The ones who can get me laughing.   To all of you…..I love you and I appreciate you.

If you are out there in internet world, and need to talk….I am here.  And better yet, there is One who will never leave and never forsake you.  Jesus is here also, and listening.  🙂  Love, Lisa

Seek and Find


“If a man owns a hundred sheep, and one of them wanders away, will he not leave the ninety-nine on the hills and go to look for the one that wandered off?  And if he finds it, I tell you the truth, he is happier about that one sheep than about the ninety-nine that did not wander off.  In the same way your Father in heaven is not willing that any of these little ones should be lost.”  ~Jesus, Matthew 18:12-14

Ever-loving, ever-seeking, ever-drawing us unto Himself.  God doesn’t stop in His pursuit.  He made us, He loves us.  Blessings, Lisa


I met a wonderful lady yesterday who cheered me immensely.  She is struggling with many physical ailments, yet had a kind word and a smile for me during her day.  We had a great conversation, and I hope that I also brought a little sunshine to her as well.  Kindness is so important…it takes a normal day in, day out existence and turns it into something beautiful.  I’m praying for more kindness, to be able to see the people around me better.

“Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.”  ~Plato

“Always be a little kinder than necessary.” ~James M. Barrie
“A kind word is like a Spring day.”  ~Russian Proverb

“As God’s people, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience.”  ~Colossians 3:12a


Have a wonderful day.  Blessings, Lisa

Love Is….

Love is patient, love is kind…

Love does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.

Love is not rude, is not self-seeking, is not easily angered.

Love does not rejoice in evil but rejoices in the truth.

Love always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

Love never fails.

-1 Corinthians 13:4-8

My prayer for this week is that God will allow me to love just a fraction of the amount that He does.  Because that’s a whole lot.  🙂  Slainte, Lisa
